QPR vs Middlesbrough Prediction
QPR will be coming off a home defeat before facing Middlesbrough. The match with Brentford earlier resulted in a 1-3 loss for the Rangers. Brentford is at the same level with just one point difference in the table. Also, the Super hoops conceded two of the three goals in the second half.
Even with 52% possession of the ball, the host could not convert any of the six shots that hit the target. They did face some trouble at the back as the opponents had space to register 9 of their 12 shots on target.
On the other hand, Middlesbrough will be also visiting with a blow from the previous away fixture. The traveling side went on to face Derby and was defeated two to nil in the clash. Also, the guest had lost in both the halves while conceding one each in both halves.
Moreover, the Boro was minuscule in all departments when compared to the Rams. It is to be noted that Derby is behind the Rangers in the table. Besides that, the host has lost only three of the eight home matches in the league games. Meanwhile, the traveling side is winless in their away fixtures with 4 losses in seven attempts on the road.
Despite the recent loss, the Rangers are sure to bounce back in the league. However, the Smoggies have not won any away games so far and are likely not to, based on their stats in the last trip on the road. Hence, the Superhoops have more probability of winning the game. Also, there will be likely under 3.5 goals in the ninety minutes.
