QPR vs Stoke Prediction

QPR salvaged a point last week on the road, after their clash with Swansea finished in a far from exciting stalemate. The hosts, however, are still winless in their past four clashes on the trot in the Championship and have come away with the win just once in their previous six.

With just thirty-nine points in the bag, QPR are now seventeenth on the ladder.

On the other hand, Stoke are currently on the brink of falling into the relegation zone. The visitors have been alternating between wins and defeats in their past four matchups, the most recent of which saw them lose 2-0 to Preston. That too, at home.

To be frank, Stoke have been erratic in their outings this season. Miserably, they have emerged victoriously just four times on the road so far. To make matters worse, the guests have secured the bragging rights just once in their previous six visits to this stadium.

In sharp contrast, QPR have been at the losing end in just three of their past eight games here. Taking into account that the reverse fixture of this clash also witnessed Stoke admit defeat, the visitors have been cast as the underdogs to pick up all three points.

Be that as it may, the guests have shared the spoils in each of their past two meetings with this foe at Loftus Road. Given that hosts have been also held to a draw on four occasions here, it will be safer to back a double chance this weekend.

Furthermore, QPR have not been shy in finding the back of the net at home. In fact, the hosts have racked up ten goals from their past five games here alone. Meanwhile, seventeen of the thirty-nine goals that Stoke have scored so far have come from their clashes on the road.

Considering that their reverse fixture also produced over 2.5 goals on the charts, it is certainly well within reason to expect a high scoring affair to unfold come Saturday.
