QPR vs Norwich
English League Championship
Date: Monday, 2nd April 2018
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: The Loftus Road (London).

QPR looks like a team which has secured their place in the league for another season. The team sits on 15th place with 13 points gap between them and the relegation zone. They are 5 points behind their current opponents and if they want to finish higher they need to win.

QPR lost their previous game. The team has some troubles away from home and they were evident. The R’s lost to Reading at Madejski stadium. Reading are a team pretty much out of form and this loss will hurt QPR. The game finished 1-0 with an early goal from Sone Aluko.

Norwich are a team with lots of ups and downs. They spring some surprises taking points from tough opponents and then they fail in a must win game. The Canaries have a tendency to concede a lot of draws also which costs them many points.

Farke’s boys lost their last game. They had a very tough job at Carrow road facing in form Fulham. The team looked well shaped, defending and repelling Fulham well. Still they were cracked open by cottagers in the space of 4 minutes. Johansen and Cairney scored 2 goals respectively in the 66th and 70th minutes which were enough to seal the victory.

QPR vs Norwich: Predictions

QPR are a strong home side. The team picks a lot of points at home against teams with similar or lower stature. They will try to push Norwich and reduce the gap. QPR are slight favourites here but they may concede. Norwich are scoring often on the road and QPR are shaky at the back.
