West Brom vs QPR
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 18th August 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: The Hawthorns (West Bromwich).
West Bromwich Albion hosts Queens Park Rangers in the hope of taking their second victory this season. The visitors are rock bottom so far and will be hoping to pick their first points.
Albion opened up the season with a disastrous loss to Bolton at home. Happily for their fans the team improved gradually over time and started producing some good results. Still there is a lot of room for improvement defensively as the team conceded 6 goals in 3 league games.
Last game the team knocked lower league side Luton in the Carabao Cup. Before that The Baggies took a difficult victory with 4-3 away at Norwich. The team needs a lot more stability especially at the back if they want to be able to reach the playoffs.
QPR are currently looking in trouble. They have a transfer ban for January and also started the season with 2 straight losses. This year things may be far more difficult for the team to keep their heads above the water.
Last game the team improved a bit but only in the Carabao Cup defeating Peterborough with 2-0. Otherwise things are not so rosy in the league. Two losses have hurt the team and the R’s need to respond quickly otherwise they may quickly lose ground under their feet.
West Brom vs QPR: Head-to-head
- Last time the sides played in 14/15 season in the Premier League and QPR won both games: 1-4 and 3-2.
- QPR won their last 2 meetings with WBA at the Hawthorns with 1-4 and 0-1.
- QPR are unbeaten in 4 games against WBA winning the last 3.

West Brom vs QPR: Predictions
West Brom should rightfully be considered favorites here. The team is slowly improving and will want the victory against struggling QPR.
Also The R’s are not amongst the best visitors in the league which adds to the feeling that WBA should get the points.
On the other hand the hosts are having tough times at the back and may concede again.
