Bristol City vs Queens Park Rangers
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 17 August 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Ashton Gate Stadium (Bristol).
Bristol City was one of the top performers of last season but has so far failed to live up to that reputation this campaign. Unfortunately, they had to open against the wounded Leeds, and it expectedly ended in a loss. The next match-day, they had to take on Birmingham on the road and were held to a draw.
As of now, they are placed in the bottom-most of the league table, and a win has become an utmost priority for them.
Their objective could get complicated though, as they are pitted against the Rangers, who, despite their unimpressive finish last campaign, is unbeaten this time till now. They won their opener against Stoke and held just-relegated Premier League side, Huddersfield to a draw.
Bristol City vs QPR Head-to-head (h2h)
- City recorded the last four wins in a row.

- At this venue, the hosts won the previous three fixtures.
- The last and the only time the visitors won at this stadium was in 2002.
Bristol City vs QPR Prediction
QPR has made an unbeaten run to their campaign and will be keen to keep the streak alive. They also were unbeaten in four of their last five overall fixtures and won two of their previous three on the road. Meanwhile, their opponents are winless in their last four games, and in nine of their former eleven at home.
Moreover, City has conceded three or more goals in four of their previous five fixtures and in their last two at home.
As these observations suggest, the chance for the guests to lose this tie is very low.
But coming to goals, the extended impressive streak that is ongoing, that Bristol has against this opponent, will have a say. Bristol registered the last four h2h wins and scored twice or more in the last four meetings. They also won the previous three clashes at this stadium and scored twice or more in all three.
With these in mind, the BTTS option has a very high chance of being fulfilled.
