QPR vs Blackburn
English Championship
Date: Friday, 19 April 2019
Kick-Off 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Loftus Road Stadium (London).

Bottom-half rivals QPR and Blackburn Rovers are set to lock horns in a low-profile Championship affair on Good Friday at Loftus Road Stadium. Visitors removed all doubts about saving the top fl8ght status with an impressive pair of successive wins over top-half likes of Derby County and Nottingham Forest in past two rounds. They are now 12 points away from the red zone with just four games left to play.

The Hoops also clinched a super-important 4-0 victory over Swansea City on Saturday to go eight points clear off the danger area. They still need to cross the finish line and could do the job with a three-pointer here against the Riversiders.

QPR vs Blackburn: Head-to-head

Blackburn Rovers have always been unpleasant opposition for the Hoops.

The Riversiders won 14, drew 8 and lost only 2 of 24 encounters with Queens Park Rangers.

Blackburn are unbeaten in past 14 meetings with the Hoops and they won each of last three head to head encounters.

Just one of past five H2H ties saw at least three goals scored.

QPR vs Blackburn: Prediction

Both teams will come into the tie high on confidence following their recent wins. Blackburn Rovers showed decent defensive efforts conceding just two goals in last three league affairs. They will be a tough nut to crack for QPR who are chasing their second consecutive victory at Loftus Road Stadium.

Both teams are capable of beating anyone in the league on their day, but are at the same time very unpredictable. Draw somehow looks to be the most likable of three outcomes and we will back it as the main betting recommendation at the odds of 3.50.

Since just one of last five head to head encounters between these two likes produced three or more goals, we will alternatively go with the Under 2.5 goals FT bet at decent-value 2.00 odds.

QPR vs Blackburn: Bet Tips

  • Draw @ 3.50 (5/2)
  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 2.00 (1/1).
