Middlesbrough vs Queens Park Rangers: Preview and Predictions

Middlesbrough vs Queens Park Rangers
Championship
Date: 16th September 2017
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Riverside Stadium, Middlesbrough.

Two mid-table Championship teams Middlesbrough and Queens Park Rangers will meet on Saturday afternoon. Three points could have huge importance and push them into the playoffs zone, so we are surely going to see an interesting clash.

Middlesbrough

The squad from Riverside was favourite number one to win the league before the season started. However, that is hardly going to happen judging by the form and results so far. Gary Monk can’t be satisfied with 11 points collected from 7 duels. However, the bright side is their defensive stats. Middlesbrough has the second best defense in the league, conceding only three goals so far. It will be interesting to see if they are able to keep a clean sheet against QPR as well. So far the record at Riverside is two wins and one draw.

Queens Park Rangers

No one predicted QPR to be extremely efficient at Loftus Road in the early stages. However, record on the road hasn’t been impressive. They played three games, won only one point and scored two goals. That was probably one of the reasons why bookmakers marked them as big underdogs to win the upcoming clash. The rate you can get on away win at the moment is huge at 5.50

Middlesbrough vs QPR: Head to head

The last time these two squads were playing in the same division was back in 2016. Middlesbrough have won both of those duels narrowly 3-2 and 1-0. They hosted QPR 13 times so far in history, won five while losing six duels.

Middlesbrough vs QPR: Prediction

Home win is the most obvious choice you can make here. The odds are 1.72 and worth high-stake bet. A decent alternative is Middlesbrough to win and to keep a clean sheet.
