Queens Park Rangers vs Aston Villa
English League Championship
Date: Friday, 25th October 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Loftus Road (London)
Queens Park Rangers faces Aston Villa with little time to recover from their midweek fixtures. The team spirits currently are on the opposite side and it will be interesting how the game will unfold.
QPR are happily sitting in the middle of the table far from any danger of relegation. Contrary to expectations they are above their current opponents from Aston Villa. The R’s are doing their job well so far and despite scoring just exactly 1 goal on average per game they manage to take points.
Midweek QPR had a game to remember. They went ahead facing Sheffield Wednesday and managed to get a convincing 3-0 victory. Wednesday controlled the tempo of the game passing the ball but The R’s were just sharp up front this time. They created chances and scored which is usually a problem for the team. A goal in the first half along with 2 in the second gave the team a beautiful victory.
Aston Villa continues to drop points. The team was aiming for promotion following last year’s playoff defeat. The Villans are not only nowhere near the top 6 but they are actually getting closer to the relegation zone. They have won 18 points so far and that gives them the undesired 16th position just 6 points above the relegation zone. The team needs to sort things out before things worsen.
Aston Villa took a blow midweek. Norwich City held firm to deny the Villans of points. Defender James Chester gave the visitors the lead in the first half. It was not nearly enough as The Canaries reorganized in the second and struck their opponent twice leaving Aston Villa empty handed.
