Cardiff vs QPR Prediction & Match Preview

Cardiff vs QPR
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 2 October 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Cardiff City Stadium (Cardiff).

Cardiff extended their unbeaten run to four games in a row last week by forcing Hull to share the spoils with them in a four-goal thriller. Despite trailing twice in that matchup, the hosts were able to do just enough to salvage a point at the least, with the equalizing goal coming in the dying minutes of stoppage time.

QPR, on the other hand, were at the losing end in their previous clash at home against the current table-toppers West Brom, with the latter slotting two unanswered goals into the back of the net. The squad were undoubtedly at their worst in that game and finished the ninety minutes with zero shots on target, apart from being reduced to ten men close to the end of regulation time.

The home team will certainly be desperate for the win this week as they are just three points shy of being level with QPR on the ladder.

Cardiff vs QPR Head to head (h2h)

  • Three of their last seven games have ended in a tie.

  • Only one of their past five clashes at this venue have finished as a stalemate.
  • Both teams have found the back of the net together in their last three matchups.

Cardiff vs QPR Prediction

The hosts are unbeaten at home so far this season and have come out on top in three of their last four games here as well. Furthermore, the visitors have already stumbled once in their previous three trips on the road.

Also, two out of the last three wins for QPR in their outings, have come against opponents who are currently plying their trade in the bottom half of the ladder.

Considering that their last head to head clash here also saw the home team get the better of QPR, there is certainly every reason to believe that Cardiff will be able to secure all three points in this one.

In addition, the hosts have found the back of the net before the break at least once in three of their past four home games in the league. Taking into account that they were able to breach this foe in their previous meeting at this venue as well, count on Cardiff to get their names on the score sheet before the referee signals for the break on Wednesday.
