QPR vs Cardiff
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 19 October 2022
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 10:45 CET
Venue: Loftus Road
The Championship meeting at Loftus Road on Wednesday sees home side QPR playing visiting rivals Cardiff.
QPR had started off this season in a displeasing manner, recording back-to-back winless outcomes. It took 4 rounds of Championship fixtures for them to record their maiden win this season.
However, they are having an impressive form in the league since then. They had managed to post points consistently in the past 6, barring a single fixture.
This surge took them to the fourth place in the table. Rangers are just one point behind Burnley who is in possession with the top spot currently. Therefore, they will be determined not to lose points in the upcoming fixtures.
If QPR needs a win to maintain their safe zone spot, Cardiff needs a win to avoid getting into the danger zone. Despite sitting 5 points above the danger zone, Cardiff might be aware of the causes of conceding a defeat at this time when the league is heating up.
Cardiff was having a 2-game winning thread. But the run ended in a 0-1 home defeat to bottom-of-the-table Coventry in their last game.
On top of that they rather have an inferior head to head form against this opponent for the past several years. For all these reasons, anticipate a home win on Wednesday.
QPR vs Cardiff Head-to-head (h2h)
