Reasons for Queens Park Rangers vs Fulham tip
Queens Park Rangers and Fulham are opening the new round of English Sky Bet Championship this Friday. The hosts have many problems, and at the moment they are underachieving. Ian Holloway is under tremendous pressure to improve results, or he is out of the picture. Fulham also has troubles, because the ambitions were high before the start of the season, but the reality is a bit different. That is why manager Jokanovic openly criticized his management.
All in all, the significance of the match at Loftus Road is huge for both sides.
Queens Park Rangers Preview
Holloway needs to do something to wake up his team, and he needs to do it fast. The Rangers are on a four-game winning less streak, and they are looking bad. Only once in the previous 10 games, they managed to keep their net intact. Yes, they did score in 8 matches during that span but when we summarize everything, 2 wins in that period is awfully low. 6 of the last 8 events saw 3 or more goals and both teams to score happened on 7 occasions throughout that interval. Following 3 straight victories at Loftus Road, QPR recorded 2 draws, and they desperately need three points to avoid further slipping on the table.
Slavisa Jokanovic, the manager of the Cottagers, was furious after his management sold many players without landing any decent replacements. It is why he was forced to change the style of play, and Fulham now relies on defense and low-efficient performances. In 10 prior matches, 7 ended with under 2.5 goals. On the other hand, Fulham conceded each time in the previous 5 events, and they ended with both teams scoring. Those matches, though, had a moderate efficiency, between 2 and 3 goals, but they were pretty tough. Only 7 goals in total in 5 events away from home are proving our theory.
Queens Park Rangers vs Fulham Head to Head
The recent results have been colorful. We have one win apiece by both teams, and one draw in the past 3 games. And the matches were very efficient, 5 of the latest 6 ended with 3 or more goals.
In 12 games throughout history, Fulham is much better. The guests have 8 wins, while QPR only two. Of course, the goal difference is entirely on the Cottagers side, 25:8.
Also, Fulham’s manager Jokanovic, has an active record against Holloway, one win and draw.
Queens Park Rangers vs. Fulham Betting Tip and Prediction
This game is very important for both clubs. They can’t afford to lose, especially the hosts. On the other hand, we witnessed that Fulham covers up a lack of quality attackers with strong and tight midfield performance. They protect their net primary and then attack. Everything points to low-efficiency at Loftus Road.
Therefore we will make two picks. Under 2.5 goals and a draw at the halftime. A cautious approach to avoid any risk of conceding an early goal will prevail with both managers.
