Though both teams are level on points in the table, there’s a gulf of difference between the two as far as form is concerned. Especially Derby have been on a different dimension at home, whereas the Rangers are winless in their last five league fixtures. Thus a clear favorite for the win arises – hosts, Derby.

Derby County vs QPR Prediction

Derby’s troubles on the road continued the last match-day. Taking on a recently-relegated Fulham, the former conceded right away in the 7th minute. Despite their efforts to equalize the scoreline, Derby conceded two more unanswered goals – one towards the end of the first half, and the other just before full time. Thus, the game ended 3-0, in favor of Fulham.

The Rangers in the meantime were thrashed by the visiting Nottingham Forest. In front of the home crowd, QPR were reduced to ten on the pitch, due to a red card, and as a result, faced a heavy 0-4 defeat.

As these two take on each other this weekend, consider how well Derby have gone through their schedule at home, and how worrisome QPR’s overall form have been. Derby won their last five home games on the trot and kept clean sheets in their prior four. In fact, at home, the team has lost just thrice since February of this year, and all three had been lost by a margin of one goal.

On the other hand, QPR are winless in their last six games, and they lost four of their previous five. They had also conceded twice or more in the preceding ten match-ups in a row and lost three of their previous four on the road. Moreover, the team has not kept a single clean sheet this season away from home.

Finally, take into account the fact that Derby won the last four h2h meetings at this stadium, and kept clean sheets in five of the prior six.

All these observations combine together to pick out Derby as the obvious choice to post the three points.
