Two teams from the Championship will face off as Rangers welcome Leeds to home on Sunday. Leeds is considered as the favorites to win this Cup tie.

The Hoops are in great form with an unbeaten streak of 5 matches which includes 3 wins. More than 2.5 goals were scored in 8 of their last 10 matches in the Championship. From the last 5 home matches they have won 3 and lost only once. In 4 of those games in front of their home crowd, the final score had over 2.5 goals in total.

Manager Steve McClaren will want his team to continue their unbeaten run. But Leeds are not an easy opponent for his side who are currently at the bottom half of the Championship table.

The away side are currently at the top of the Championship. After finishing 13th last season they have made a major upgrade which makes them one of the favorites for promotion into the Premier League.

But they come from a 2 match losing streak in the League. The most recent of them was a 4-2 away defeat against Nottingham Forest. The Whites have not been able to keep a clean sheet in their last 4 matches.

The Peacocks have 3 wins sandwiched between 2 losses in the last 5 away matches. Three of those games had more than 2.5 goals at the final whistle. They will have to keep their back line tight to prevent easy goals for their opposition on Sunday.

QPR vs Leeds United: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Leeds has 3 wins and a defeat in the last 5 h2h games across all venues.
  • The Whites are currently on a 3 match win streak against this opposition.

QPR vs Leeds United: Prediction

Even though they are good at scoring, Leeds has been conceding goals in the recent matches. They gave away at least 2 goals in games against Aston Villa, Nottingham Forest and West Brom. So there is ample chance that they will repeat that habit again on Sunday. So we can bet on both teams scoring with 1.70 odd.

Leeds has scored 2 or more goals in the last 2 matches. This is also the case in the last 2 h2h matches held in the recent past. So we can bet on the Whites to score 2 or more goals with 5.50 odds.
