Middlesbrough vs QPR
England – Championship
Date: Sunday, 5 July 2020
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Riverside Stadium (Middlesbrough)
Boro needs to win the remaining matches to keep their chances alive for next season. Currently, they are just a point away from the relegation zone. The latest league action for Boro saw them lose to Hull City away from home.
The visitors have lost all three of their recent league games. The home defeat against Fulham was the latest of the lot. But the one that hurt them the most was the loss to relegation placed Barnsley. With six games to go, they still have the chance to finish in the top ten.
Middlesbrough vs QPR: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Boro has three wins and a defeat in five meetings with this opposition.
- More than 2.5 goals were scored in four of those five games.
- Both sides found the back of the net in three of those matches too.
- The hosts have a three-game winning streak going on in head to head games at this ground.
- More than 2.5 goals came in three of the last five clashes here.
- QPR is on a 3 match losing streak in the league.
Middlesbrough vs QPR: Prediction
The visitors have a poor record in recent head to head meetings at this ground. With the losing streak also going on they will be under severe pressure.
The hosts need some positive results so they could stay in the Championship for yet another season. But currently, they have no wins in 7 home games on the trot.
Thus there is no home advantage to consider in this one. Despite losing consecutively I am backing a Double chance for QPR winning or the match to draw.
Recent setbacks for the Rangers were mainly because of a shabby defensive performance. Their backline has conceded 66 goals which are 7 more than what they scored during this season. They could not keep out a team like Barnsley who is not known for their scoring.
At the same time, Boro also have a habit of giving away easy goals.
But in all previous visits to this venue, the away side has given away goals. So we can expect goals on both sides of the field.
