QPR vs Derby Prediction

QPR salvaged a point last week on the road after they managed to hold Nottingham Forest to a goalless draw. The hosts are unbeaten in their past three fixtures and have garnered five points from a possible nine in the process.

Be that as it may, it is certainly worth mentioning that the home team have just one win from their last seven games across various competitions. At the moment, QPR are placed fifteenth on the ladder, two points adrift of Derby who are thirteenth.

On the other hand, the visitors will be making the trip to Loftus Road this week, on the back of a 1-1 draw against Fulham at home. The guests have not been at the losing end in their past two games either, and have stumbled just once in their previous five as well.

Miserably though, the visitors have been far from convincing in their outings this season. As a matter of fact, nine of the eleven defeats that they have succumbed to so far have come from their trips on the road.

In sharp contrast, QPR have emerged victoriously in three of their past four fixtures here. With home advantage out of the equation for Derby, the hosts are sizing up to be the front runners to come out on top in this one.

However, the visitors have shared the spoils in three of their previous four trips to this stadium. Taking into account that the reverse fixture of this encounter had also ended as a tie, back a double chance, just to be on the safer side.

Furthermore, the hosts have been keen on getting their names on the scoresheet at home. Impressively, they have found the back of the net thirty-three times here, which is just one fewer than the highest tally.

Meanwhile, Derby have consistently scored two goals or more in each of their last four outings. As such, count on both teams to look lively in the final third and to rack up over 2.5 goals on the final scorecards this week.
