QPR vs Brighton
England – The Championship
Date: Friday, 7th April 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Loftus Road.
Loftus Road hosts yet another interesting game. The hosts QPR are taking on high flying Brighton. The game has a much higher importance for the away team as they try to overcome Newcastle at the top of the table.
QPR has lost their last 2 games in the league, but both of them were away against strong opponents. At home the situation is much more different as they accumulated 4 consecutive wins. The head-coach Ian Holloway will be hoping to keep that momentum going and get at least a point out of this game.
The Seagulls are top of the table currently with 2 points lead over Newcastle. Still Newcastle has a game to play against Burton and it is highly likely for them to get the 3 points and occupy 1st place again. Brighton travel to Loftus Road after 2 wins in a row hoping to make them 3 and keep the pressure on Newcastle.
QPR vs Brighton: Head to head
Brighton have been dominant in the meetings between these two sides. The Seagulls are undefeated in 8 games against QPR and have won 4 and drawn the other 4. The last victory for QPR date back to 18/09/2004.
At home QPR have drawn all their last 4 games against Brighton. Two of the games finished in a goalless draw while the other 2 finished 1-1 and 2-2.
The previous game between the sides this season was in December when Brighton got a comfortable 3-0 victory on their Falmer Stadium.
QPR vs Brighton: Prediction
Brighton has far more to lose in this game than QPR. All the pressure is on their side and nerves are to be expected. QPR may be in a good form but they have nothing to fight for unlike the Seagulls. Brighton’s determination and ambition may prove vital in this encounter.
With the strong and organized defensive line that Brighton possesses they should be able to clinch these very important 3 points. The last 4 games at Loftus Road may all be draws but this time the stake for The Seagulls is higher.
Brighton to win should be the main pick for this game. For a safer bet, an Asian handicap of 0.0 may be used to return stake in case of a draw.
