QPR – Watford, FA Cup Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR QPR - WATFORD
QPR had recently many high goal scoring matches and have conceded quite a few goals. Obviously this will not be their year and they are far from the top 6. At the same time their chances of getting relegated are not too big, so their goal from here until the end of the season is to perform well and to prepare for the new season. From this point of view, their FA Cup matches should be much more important and they will certainly not give up easily to Watford.
Watford is in a very strong form and lately have greatly improved their defensive performance, which is impressive for them. They also have only one loss in their last 9 games, coming from Tottenham at Wembley at the end of the match, after Spurs showed character and managed to make a comeback. Watford have already defeated a Premier League team, Newcastle, and now have a third consecutive FA Cup visit.
Watford did not concede a goal in their both games so far in the FA Cup, and in 4 of their last 5 games they have clean sheets. Although QPR have scored many goals at home this season, it is still against lower level teams and we are now expecting cautiously approach from Watford. In 4 of the last 6 games between the two teams there were under 3 goals. We think that because of the draw and that there will be only two of the big favorites after this round, the small teams have a chance to go far in the FA Cup, so they will not risk. Prediction – Under 2.5 goals at 1.79
