Coventry City vs QPR
Date: Friday, 18 September 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: St Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium, Birmingham.
Coventry City have finally found their way back to the Championship, but the start of new campaign wasn’t as glorious as promotion. The Sky Blues got defeated in the opening match by Bristol City 1-2 FT, putting up a good fight.
This Friday they have the honor to open the second round of fixtures at “home” against QPR.
Coventry’s stadium Ricoh Arena is under construction so they will be playing home games in Birmingham for some time.
QPR were victorious in the first match against Nottingham, but they are still warm underdogs in this clash against Coventry, currently priced at 2.80 to win the game. Odds are suggesting a narrow contest.
Coventry vs QPR Head-to-head
These two teams have met a lot of times in history – 54 to be precise. QPR have 22-19 lead in terms of victories.

When it comes to home appearances, Coventry hosted QPR 27 times and won 13 encounters, losing eight.
Coventry vs QPR Prediction
In the abovementioned match against Bristol City, The Sky Blues were looking really good. Matt Godden scored the equalizer in the first half, and 1-1 was the result all until the 82nd minute when visiting defense collapsed. Slovak goalkeeper Marko Maroi deflected a lot of shots and could have easily been the man of the match if the game ended as a draw.
During the mid-week Coventry City had another appearance in the EFL Cup. Coach Mark Robins can’t be happy with the elimination against Gillingham on penalties.
QPR surprised everyone by beating Nottingham Forest 2-0 in the opening match. Team’s confidence is going through the roof right now and we don’t think they will lose to Coventry this Friday. Draw or away win double chance is a banker bet in our opinion, as well as the BTTS pick.
