Brentford vs Queens Park Rangers Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday fixture (15:00) is a London derby and features a Brentford side in tenth still hoping for a spot in the end of season play-offs.  Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Brentford stretched their unbeaten run to six matches with a last gasp goal from Neal Maupay rescuing a 1-1 draw at Fulham.  It would have been harsh for the Bees to lose that game giving they were the stronger side.

QPR continued an in and out run with a 2-1 home loss to Preston at Loftus Road last weekend.  Matt Smith gave them a 13th minute lead but they were undone by a Callum Robinson brace and can have few complaints about the result.

The reverse fixture came towards the end of November and ended in a 2-2 with Lasse Vibe netting for the Bees and Matt Smith and Luke Freeman one each for the Rs.  These two also met at Loftus Road in August in the League Cup with Brentford winning that one 4-1 going ahead 3-0 nil in the opening 32 minutes.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Brentford are strong favourites to win the game and they should be but I could not take a side who have won just two of their last seven in front of their own fans.  QPR are a side who are hot one week and cold another so I would not be trusting them but given they have beaten Wolves, Cardiff and Villa this season it would not shock me if they got something here.

Both these sides have scored around a third of their goals in the final 15 minutes so take the second-half to be the highest scoring 45 minutes and the game to have a late goal which is set at 76:59.

Brentford Preview

The Bees are unbeaten in their last six (winning three and drawing three) which means they are still in the hunt for a play-off spot.  They sit tenth four points behind though they have three winnable games in this one, Barnsley away and Hull at home.

At Griffin Park, they are unbeaten in their last three though they have won just two of their last seven in front of their own fans.  Neal Maupay has netted in three of his last five at his own ground.

The last six Brentford league games have gone under 2.5 goals with a total of just nine goals produced.   Each of their last three meetings including both this season have gone over 3.5 goals.

 

Brentford Team News

Rico Henry (knee) is a long-term absentee while Alan Judge (hamstring) is a doubt.

 

Queens Park Rangers Preview

The Rs are ending the season in mixed form with three victories, one draw and three defeats from their last seven.  They end the season with this fixture, a home game with Birmingham and a road trip to Leeds.

Away from Loftus Road, they have lost five of their last seven and won just three times all season.  Five of their last seven and six of their last eight on their travels have gone over 2.5 goals.

Five of the last seven and eight of the last 11 QPR have played in the Championship have seen both teams find the back of the net.  Matt Smith has two in his last three and netted in the reverse fixture.

 

Queens Park Rangers Team News

Joel Lynch (hamstring) and Grant Hall (knee) are doubts while Jamie Mackie (back surgery) and David Wheeler (ankle) are long-term absentees.  Nedum Onuoha will miss the game through suspension.
