QPR vs Stoke City
Date: Saturday, 9 March 2019
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Loftus Road Stadium (London).
Bottom-half rivals QPR and Stoke City are set to come across each other on Saturday afternoon in 36th round of Championship at Loftus Road Stadium. The visitors will head into the game as form favourites being undefeated in last four league affairs.
The Potters had quite a challenging schedule in the last couple of weeks but it did not prevent them to claim four points from home ties against promotional contenders Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest. They generally improved their defensive displays drastically in recent weeks having shipped only three goals in past five league rounds.
QPR vs Stoke City: Head-to-head
Queens Park Rangers lead the head to head tie by five wins coming into 37th encounter with the Potters.
Nonetheless, it’s Stoke City who were much more successful in the most recent head to head history as they won three and drew two of past five meetings with the Hoops.
There were four goals scored in all of three previous head to head affairs.
Teams shared spoils in a 2-2 draw when they took on each other in late-November at Bet365 Stadium.
QPR vs Stoke City: Prediction
QPR’s form has seen a massive slide recently. The Hoops lost six and won one of past seven matches in all competitions. However, the lone win came just in the previous home outing against nobody else but second-placed Leeds United.
It just shows how unpredictable the Hoops are this season. The fact is the hosts can beat anyone on their day, but the bad news for their fans is they only had one good day in last two months.
The Potters were much more consistent of late and they are unbeaten in last five ties against QPR. It is enough for us to back the visitors not to lose as the main betting call at the odds of 1.50. The Potters were fairly tough to break down of late and we fancy the 3.00 odds offered for their clean sheet here as well.
