Queens Park Rangers vs Middlesbrough
Date: Saturday, 26 September 2020
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium, London.
QPR welcomes Middlesbrough this Saturday in London and it is really hard to say what are the ambitions or quality of these squads for upcoming season.
We are still in very early stages, and both have shown inconsistency both in league and pre-season games.
Previous head to head duels were always entertaining to watch, so football lovers will surely enjoy this afternoon at Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.
QPR were slightly more successful so far, having won three points while visitors have one.
In terms of the odds, hosts have very small edge in 2.62 odds, compared to 2.75 for away team.
QPR vs Middlesbrough Head-to-head
There were 32 duels between QPR and Middlesbrough so far, and Policemen from London have won more games 14, while losing 10. They dropped only 3 out of 16 games to Boro at this stadium.
The last three meetings at this venue all ended with three goals or more. Last season’s result was 2-2. Middlesbrough’s saviour was Britt Assombalonga with two goals.
The average number of goals scored at the Den in previous h2h’s is slightly higher than 3.00.
QPR vs Middlesbrough Prediction
Middlesbrough are definitely having a lot of problems in approaching all games. They were the one to concede the first goal in the last eight appearances across competitions.
The back line obviously has to step up and keep a clean sheet for a change. They were successful only once in the last eight matches.
The initial 1-0 loss to Watford in the first round was more or less expected. Things were looking much better at Riverside last weekend in 1-1 draw against AFC Bournemouth. Marcus Browne scored ten minutes from the final whistle and secured that point.
QPR were involved in five-goals thriller last Friday, losing to Coventry City on the road after a lot of drama. The biggest danger for Boro’s danger is surely going to come from Lyndon Dykes who already found back of the net two times this season. QPR definitely look like more solid here. Banker option is home win draw no bet.
