Queens Park Rangers vs Fulham
England – FA Cup
Date: Saturday, 9 January 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.
The Superhoops are one of the worst teams in the Championship at the moment, and are placed 20th in the table. They have been struggling to secure even draws in their recent games, and have been conceding in plenty in the process.
Going on, they also do have a worrying h2h record against this rival over the past several years.
Meanwhile, the Cottagers are currently plying their trade in the PL. Note that they were a part of the Championship the past season – but owing to their stupendous performances and subsequent top-tier finish, they were promoted to the top flight.
Suffice it to say that they hold an upper hand over this foe this coming weekend. Moreover, this is a single-legged knockout fixture, and Scott Parker’s men are also in urgent need for some confidence boost.
We can count on them to give their best on the pitch this Saturday. Place your bets favoring Fulham.
QPR vs Fulham Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter had ended in a 1-2 win for the Cottagers on the road.
- They had recorded 11 of the preceding 13 overall wins.
- They had scored two or more goals in seven of the past nine clashes.

QPR vs Fulham Prediction
Mark Warburton’s men are on a nine-game winless run, and they had failed to score in four of their former seven match-ups. Going on, they had also remained winless in 21 of their past 25 fixtures.
At home, they were winless in eight of their last ten home appearances, and had failed to find the back of the net in the preceding three home fixtures.
On the other hand, their counterparts are part of arguably the best league in Europe, and they are also unbeaten in their last four games. They have also lost just once on the road since the first week of October, and one of these defeats had come against Manchester City.
Finally, the Cottagers also do have a phenomenal h2h record against this rival over the past two decades.
Judging these observations, expect Fulham to emerge victorious this weekend at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.
