Wigan Athletic vs Queens Park Rangers
Date: Wednesday, 8 July 2020
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: DW Stadium.
Wigan will welcome the Rangers to home on Wednesday in the 42nd round. The recent 3-0 away defeat to Brentford has ended an unbeaten run going on for them.
They have an unbeaten run going on in the last five home games. So the visitors will have trouble getting a win here.
The away side has finally ended a three-match losing run with the latest win over Middlesbrough. Lack consistency this season with losing matches to teams at the bottom of the table. But from the last five matches, they have lost only once, which was against Charlton.
Wigan vs QPR: Head-to-head (h2h)
- QPR has won the reverse fixture at home with a final score of 3-1.
- They have won four of the last five meetings with Wigan across all venues.
- More than 2.5 goals were scored in three of those matches.
- Both teams found the back of the net in all three of those games.
- Both sides have a win each in five previous clashes at this ground.
Wigan vs QPR: Prediction
Wigan has maintained an unbeaten record in their last five home games. Apart from their recent loss against Brentford, they have done exceptionally since February 2020.
The visitors have been much better in head to head matches in recent times.
They have won the reverse fixture this season. But in the current form, they have very little chance in this away game, as they have only two wins in 10 previous matches on the road.
Even though the hosts have kept a clean sheet in their four latest home games, QPR has enough firepower to break that defense. They have already done that in the reverse leg.
The Rangers have scored 60 goals which are much better compared to most teams in the league.
Also, the three goals thrashing against Brentford may have affected their backline. So I am backing the hosts to win with both teams getting goals.
