QPR vs Sheffield United
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 11th August 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Loftus Road (London).
QPR takes on Sheffield United as both teams are still searching for their first points.
QPR lost their opening game with the minimal 1-0 to Preston North End. The team let their hosts dominate the game and was happy to defend. Eventually though their defenses failed and Preston got all the points.
QPR are in a difficult situation. The team has a transfer ban for January window while currently looks a bit vulnerable and with a shorter bench. Steve McLaren though is an experienced manager and the team’s hopes rely upon him.
Sheffield United were amongst the top sides last season but this campaign the team has a difficult start. Two Straight losses leave the team pointless. First it was a home defeat to Swansea later followed crushing blow from Middlesbrough at Riverside with 3-0.
The Blades may have ambitions for top 6 but the team may lack the quality to mount a serious challenge. Main man up front from last season Leon Clarke isn’t getting any younger and this may be one of the main problems for the team.

QPR vs Sheffield United Predictions
QPR may be troubled but still have decent squad and should be dangerous at home. United looked literally clueless in their opening 2 games losing both. The team may also be a bit tired as they played on Tuesday unlike QPR. Home victory looks likely with Sheffield hardly finding the net.
