QPR vs Derby Prediction & Match Preview

QPR vs Derby
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 23 January 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

The Rangers had gone through one of the worst runs for any team in the competition earlier in the season. They have been making slight improvements lately, but the damage done was far too big to just easily overcome.

They are placed in the bottom tier of the table, and have won just six games all through this campaign. And only a handful of teams have let in more goals than them this season.

Meanwhile, the Rams too have a similar story to tell. They are placed 21st in the table – just above the relegation zone. They too have gone through a worrying stretch for the major part of the season, and as of now they are trying to make up for the lost time.

Still, their faltering defense is weighing them down.

Suffice it to say that both teams are under pressure to deliver, and analyzing all these factors, expect a high-scoring thriller this Saturday at the Kiyan Prince Stadium.

  • The latest meeting had ended in a 0-1 win for Mark Warburton’s men.

QPR vs Derby Prediction

The Rangers recorded a 0-1 win on the road the last match-day, against Cardiff. In the meantime, Wayne Rooney’s men registered a 1-0 win at home the past game week, against Bournemouth.

Going on, Warburton’s men were winless in 12 of their previous 15 overall matches, and they are winless in their past five appearances at home. Note that they had in fact lost four of these preceding five home fixtures.

They have also kept a total of just two clean sheets at home since September.

On the other hand, their counterparts had lost four of their previous six matches, and they were winless in eight of their last ten games on the road. Take note that they have conceded heavily in almost all of these games.

Considering these stats, and the determination of these two to make amends, expect a goal-fest with this Saturday – especially with two weak defenses on either side of the pitch.
