QPR vs Birmingham
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 9th February 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET]
Venue: Loftus Road (London).
The Hoops have been performing well the last few match-days and as a result, the team has reduced the gap they had with the top-tier teams. Especially at home, the group had pulled off some astounding wins, against the likes of Leeds, which has raised their morale and hunger.
Meanwhile, the Blues, who had a great shot at becoming one of the major teams to be qualified to the playoffs, has messed up their chances due to lackluster performances in the last few months. Their away form was already a cause for concern for their fans, and now, even their home-ties have started to decline sanctuary.
QPR vs Birmingham Head-to-head (h2h)
The last four wins and seven of the last eight belong to the Rs.
Four of the last five games at the Loftus Road saw the home-team taking the three points.
Steve McClaren’s men have found the back of the net in their last five appearances at home.
The team from Birmingham recorded just a total of two goals in their last five fixtures at this venue.
Three of the last four ties and four of the last six saw two or more goals by the Rangers.
QPR vs Birmingham Prediction
The team from White City were unbeaten in 16 of their last 22 games, and in 12 of their last 15 home-ties. They have also recorded the last four h2h wins in a row, and six of the last seven. Coupled with that, the Blues were winless in six of their last seven fixtures, and in 13 of their last 17 on the road. Also, at this venue, the hosts have been unbeaten for over a decade, against this opponent. Even in overall h2h ties, only once have they lost in the last 11 years. On basis of these, I predict a win for the Hoops, this Saturday.
The Rs have scored two or more goals in four of their last six home-ties, and in six of their last eight h2h fixtures. Additionally, Garry Monk’s men have conceded the same in four of their last five matches, and in their last three on the road. A bet on the hosts to record over 1.5 goals will return great value.
