Swansea City vs QPR
Date: Saturday, 29 September 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Liberty Stadium (Swansea).
The Swans will finally have a genuine opportunity to get three points on the board on Saturday when they are to play mid-table rivals Queens Park Rangers at Liberty Stadium. The host went through a series of very complicated fixtures in the last couple of weeks.
They played the likes of Nottingham Forest, Stoke City and Middlesbrough in past three rounds. It is no wonder they were completely toothless in the final third during the run, failing to find a single goal in these three outings.
QPR did not do much better up front in their own fixtures either. They come into this off the back of consecutive defeats to Norwich City (league) and Blackpool (Carabao Cup) without scoring a single time along.
Swansea City vs QPR: Head-to-head
Teams have four wins apiece ahead of their 14th head to head encounter.
Swansea City are unbeaten in six home games against the Hoops (three wins and draws each).
It’s been three years since these two last locked horns, and back then they were battling it out in the top flight of the English football.
Swansea City vs QPR: Prediction
Both sides generally struggled for goals at the start of the season, especially in the last couple of weeks. We thus see the Under 2.5 goals FT as the best of betting options. It can be backed at the odds of 1.70.
The Swans have been fairly tough to break down of late. They conceded just one goal in last three games in spite of a very challenging schedule and we’d not be surprised to see them keep another clean sheet against the weaker opposition here. You can back such scenario at the 2.62 odds.
The home win also looks good at 2.25 even though the Swans did not score a single goal in last two league games at Liberty. Backing the low-scoring contest is a much safer call, though; given the hosts will likely still be without the likes of Wilfried Bony and Luciano Narsingh in the final third.
