West Brom vs QPR
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 22 July 2020
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: The Hawthorns (West Bromwich).
It will be a much anticipated final match in the championship as West Brom is close to playing in the Premier League next season and they have been dropping points in the campaign lately.
Anything other than a win will affect their promotion depending on the result of Brentford and Fulham in the league. With their poor away form, the Rangers will not be a threat to the host.
West Brom vs QPR Match preview
West Brom visited Huddersfield in the last league clash only to return home with a 1-3 loss on the road from the encounter. It was their second loss within the last eight matches post lockdown.
QPR can argue for a better run recently, as they will visit on the back of a 4-3 win at home against Millwall in their previous league clash. But it was only their second win after the restart.
The host has a decent form at home with just three losses in their 22 home matches so far. They have been unbeaten in their recent four home matches in the league.
On the contrary, the Rangers have only 7 wins in their 22 away fixtures in the campaign and they have been winless in their recent two fixtures in the schedule.
In the reverse fixture this season, West Brom returned home with a 0-2 clean sheet win from their visit to QPR, and it will give the home team a slight edge in the clash.
Having a better overall performance in the league matches and a decent record at home, the Albions have little to worry about when facing the visitors.
