English League Championship

Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Loftus Road (London).

Two struggling sides are facing each other in the midweek EFL Championship fixtures as QPR hosts Bristol City. Both teams are having a rough start of the season and it will be interesting to see their outcome.

QPR are in real mess currently. The team had little trouble to survive last season but this year things are not looking rosy. The R’s are at the bottom of the table after the 3 opening rounds without a single point. The team also has a January transfer ban and it will be even harder for Steve McLaren to lift them up.

Last round was one of the worst games in the team’s history. Rangers went to West Bromwich just to suffer a humiliating defeat. WBA are not at their best either but still they managed to put 7 goals past Ingram. QPR play was just abysmal and they rightfully suffered this heavy defeat.

Bristol are still suffering. They were hoping to recreate their first half of the season from last year but the team so far isn’t showing anything positive. Their preseason was below average and their season opened up even worse.

The Robins have won just 2 points since the start and have already left the Carabao Cup. Last weekend the team failed to score in front of home crowd and lost 0-2 to Middlesbrough with two goals in the first half.

QPR vs Bristol: Head-to-head

  • QPR have 4 straight league defeats including last season
  • Last year Bristol won their home game and drew 1-1 at Loftus Road
  • QPR are unbeaten in 12 games against Bristol at home winning 6 and drawing also 6
  • Bristol are winless in 8 games in all competitions

QPR vs Bristol: Predictions

Both sides are struggling currently and theres not much to separate them. QPR is still pointless at the bottom and even a point here will be counted as success. Bristol is having issues at both ends but considering QPR defensive record Johnson’s boys may find a way to the opponents net.
