Derby – QPR, Championship Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR DERBY - QPR
Derby had difficult times against Birmingham in the last match and the tension was obvious, but Lampard’s team did everything what they could and were very close to the victory, but also to the loss at the end of the game. The rams have a crucial match with Bristol, who can determine whether the team will be able to enter the top 6, and then the program is not the easiest but bearable. This is the game, however, which Derby must necessarily win if they want to hope for something.
QPR does not fight for anything. They play now the season like most teams in the middle of the table at this time of the campaign. There is even some theoretical possibility of QPR to get relegated, but it’s in the sphere of fiction. The guests are tidal and beat Swansea home recently by 4-0, and the last round lost from Blackburn with 1-2 and played extremely poorly in this fight.
Here it is clear that Derby is being favored for several reasons. For rams, the match is of the utmost importance, and for the guests this is not the case. In addition, Derby are hosts and are the better team overall. Moreover, QPR have not won here for five years, so we expect Lampard and his team to do the job and put the other two rivals under pressure, given that Middlesbrough and Bristol have very hard games. Prediction – Derby to win at 1.68.
- QPR have suffered 6 losses in their last 8 away games in the league
- Derby have 5 victories in their last 8 home games in the league
