Reasons for betting on Cardiff City vs Queens Park Rangers tip
The leaders in the Championship, Cardiff City, have suffered one unpleasant defeat in the League Cup. They will be looking to redeem themselves against Queens Park Rangers who were also eliminated this Tuesday. The Rangers opened this season with three games without a defeat. After that, they had two losses in only six days.
The game in Wales is the derby of this round and a match which will attract the biggest attention.
Cardiff City overview
The Welsh team surprisingly lost in the League Cup against Burton Albion with 1-2. It was something they were not hoping after four straight wins in the Championship. 3 of those 4 wins came without a conceded goal. Until that Cup game, Cardiff only once didn’t score 2 or more goals the previous 6 events. They are at the top of the table with only one goal in their net and 8 scored. However, they play high efficient games, and we have seen three or more goals on 4 of the previous 5 occasions. Neil Warnock has the vision to promote this team into a Premiership member, and so far he is doing a great job. There are no injuries or suspensions at Cardiff City Stadium.
Queens Park Rangers overview
Ian Holloway’s team started solidly, but eventually, they became inconsistent. Only one win in the previous 4 games is something that concerns the fans and the experienced manager. QPR is struggling, and that is evident. Unlike Cardiff City, the Rangers are playing tight and defensive matches. From the latest 7 encounters, 5 concluded with less than 3 goals. In last 4 games, Queens Park Rangers conceded at least one goal. They were demolished this Tuesday in the League Cup against Brentford 1-4, and that is something very disturbing for this team before the trip to Wales. So, have that in mind when placing a bet here.
Head to head matches
This is something very encouraging for the Rangers fans. They haven’t experienced a loss against Cardiff City in the previous 6 meetings. Three victories and three drawers.
Overall, after 23 encounters in history so far Queens Park has 11 wins while Cardiff has 6, with the goal difference 23-21.
Prediction for Cardiff City Queens Park Rangers tip
We have to say that for us there is only one sure bet in this match. That is home team to win. In our opinion, the hosts are in a better shape at the moment and with the advantage of the home ground their victory is certain. The second suggestion would be a moderate number of goals between two or three. Queens Park is already. playing low-efficient contests, and when we add the fact that home team has an excellent back line, this comes as a logical solution.
