Queens Park Rangers vs Barnsley Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides fighting against relegation in the Championship. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

QPR made it back-to-back league defeats as they went down 2-0 away to Bristol City despite playing ten-men for over an hour. The expected goals data suggest they were a little unlucky but they will be kicking themselves for losing the game.

Barnsley can have few complaints about the result as they lost 3-1 at home to Fulham in their last match. Liam Lindsay gave them the lead but the dismissal of Dimitri Cavare just before the break proved to be a turning point though they were still level going into the 90th minute before shipping twice in added on time.

The reverse fixture came at the end of September at Oakwell and it ended all-square with one goal each. Harrison Barnes gave the Tykes the lead with Luke Freeman netting three minutes from time to enable the Rs to secure a point.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Home advantage means QPR are deserved favourites but I would not want to be taking that price considering Millwall and Burton and MK Dons (in the FA Cup) have come here in recent months and picked up results. Barnsley themselves though are not showing enough to side with so look elsewhere for your bets.

The Tykes have netted in each of their last four on the road including at Fulham and Aston Villa while the hosts have only failed to net in one of their last nine league home games so both teams to score looks worth a small interest.

Just 46% of the goals the London side have scored this season have come in the first hour so it might be worth taking them on in the time of the first team goal market which for the hosts is set at 49:00.

YES in the both teams to score market

NO QPR goal before 49:00

Queens Park Rangers Preview

The Hoops have now just won two of their last seven in the league a run that means they still cannot consider themselves safe. At the transfer deadline the London side were very quiet with no major comings or goings.

At Loftus Road, they have won just one of their last six though each of these sides were in the top -half. When entertaining teams in the bottom-half this season they have won two and drawn the other two.

Around 60% of the league goals QPR have scored this season have come in the second-half with 36% in the final 15 minutes. They have kept just four clean sheets this season three of which have come at their own ground.

Queens Park Rangers Team News

David Wheeler (ankle), Jordan Cousins (hamstring), idrissa Sylla (calf) and Paul Smyth (thigh) are doubts while Jamie Mackie (back surgery) is a long-term absentee.

Barnsley Preview

The Tykes have now just one of their last 14 in the league and it is no shock then that they are in the middle of a relegation battle. Oliver McBurnie on loan from Swansea could be the man they need to help with their goalscoring woes though Angus MacDonald was sold to Championship rivals Hull.

Away from Oakwell, they have won just one of their last seven though they have lost just seven of 14 this season. Four of their last six and seven of their last 11 on the road have gone over 2.5 goals.

Barnsley are struggling for goals of late having netted just six times in their last 13 league fixtures scoring no more than one goal in a match since November 4th. The average time of the first goal conceded is the 38th minute but this drops to the 30th when looking just at away ties.

Barnsley Team News

Ryan Hedges (thigh) and Adam Jackson (knee) are doubts while Dimitri Cavare will miss the tie through suspension.
