Watford vs QPR Prediction & Match Preview

Watford vs QPR
England – Championship
Date: Monday, 1 February 2021
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Vicarage Road.

The Hornets are placed third in the table at the moment, and have been a contender for the playoffs all through the campaign.

They are also a recently relegated team from the PL, and as such are much more experienced and exposed to some of the best teams in the world, compared to the other squads in the Championship.

As of now, they share the same number of points with the second-placed Swansea, and by the looks of things, Swansea seem to be in no mood to let go of their objective to finish in the top-two of the table.

Xisco Munoz’s men have no option but to keep fighting till the end to qualify for the playoffs, or to secure a direct promotion back to the top flight.

Meanwhile, the Rangers are one of the weakest teams in the competition, and are placed just four points above the relegation cut-off. They also have won just six times this whole campaign, and have been struggling on the road almost for the entirety of the season.

Finally, the Hornets also have a terrific h2h record against this opponent over the years, and particularly so at this venue.

As such, expect Watford to emerge victorious this Monday at the Vicarage Road.

Watford vs QPR: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Munoz’s men had recorded 11 of the preceding 17 overall wins.
  • The latest encounter had ended in a 1-1 draw.
  • At this venue, the hosts have a 100% unbeaten record barring two draws.
  • The home team had also scored two or more goals in all but two clashes at this stadium.

Watford vs QPR Prediction

The Hornets recorded a goalless draw the last match-day on the road, against Millwall. In the meantime, Mark Warburton’s men lost 0-1 at home the past game week, against Derby.

Going on, Munoz’s men are on a four-game unbeaten run, and three of these were wins. At home, they were also unbeaten in 13 of their former 14 appearances, and in the process had won 11 of these fixtures.

On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 11 of their preceding 13 match-ups, and remained so in 16 of their past 19 road trips.

Going on, over the years, the Hornets have a great h2h record against this rival as well, and most importantly they were a part of the top flight the last season.

Likely, expect Watford to deliver a commendable win this Monday at the Vicarage Road.
