QPR vs Swansea
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 13th April 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Loftus Road (London).
Swansea has a game in hand and can make a considerable jump if they win this tie. They remain the only team along with Hull and Aston Villa to win the last three matches in a row. On top of that, they are taking on the only squad in the Championship that has stayed winless in the last five attempts.
QPR has the relegation threat to worry about, while Swansea has already ensured participation in the next edition of the competition. With their inability to dole out wins, the Rangers are facing possible tense last few weeks in the season. Their weak defense has also been a cause of worry to the fans.
QPR vs Swansea Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last five matches returned four Swansea wins and a draw.
- The last QPR won at home was back in 2012.
- Swansea scored two or more goals in four of the last five h2h meetings.
- The last game at this venue saw either team getting on the scoresheet.
QPR vs Swansea Prediction
The Rangers were winless in 17 of their last 20 matches, and in six of their last seven at home. Meanwhile, Swansea is on a winning streak of three games.
Going on, Swansea was unbeaten in the last five h2h ties, and four of them were wins. The team also scored two or more goals in four of their last five h2h encounters. Importantly, the last QPR won at this venue was back in 2012.
The defense of the Rangers has been shambolic all season. They have conceded 65 goals so far, while the worst team in the competition, Ipswich, let in just 67. At home, QPR has conceded even more than Ipswich and also is one of the worst teams in front of their home crowd.
Everything points towards Swansea having the upper hand. But one thing needs to be mentioned. QPR needs this win, whereas Swansea just wants it. The hosts will give all they can on the pitch, and with Swansea’s recent struggles on the road, the situation would be ideal to witness either squad getting in on the goal-scoring action.
