EFL Championship

Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Vicarage Road.

Watford and QPR will clash at the Vicarage Road this Saturday, in an early kick-off. The host are currently unbeaten in the Championship and manager Rob Edwards will look to win this fixture in front of the home crowd.

Last season Watford got relegated from the top flight, losing an embarrassing 27 of the 38 games. This led to the club sacking Roy Hodgson who could only manage an 11.1% winning rate.

Meanwhile, QPR are struggling in the Championship early in this season – winning only one of their last five outings. Earlier this month, QPR got knocked out by Charlton in the first round of the EFL Cup.

It is worth knowing that QPR has failed to qualify for the top flight in England for the past eight years. This is not the case for the host, who featured in the top flight last season.

In this upcoming fixture, we can expect Rob Edwards’s side to play an attacking game. With the likes of Rey Manaj, Ismaila Sarr, and Joao Pedro in the starting eleven and goals can be expected.
