Queens Park Rangers vs Bristol City Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Tuesday evening (19:45) fixture is live on Sky Sports (behind the red button) and features two sides seeking their first league victory of the season. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. QPR will be looking to bounce back after an embarrassing 7-1 loss away to West Brom at the weekend. When Joel Lynch levelled in the 34th minute they must have hoped for more but they shipped six in a 37-minute spell during the second-half. Bristol City also suffered a defeat going down to a 2-0 home loss to high-flying Middlesbrough. They were probably second best to the Teesiders but the scoreline was a little harsh on them. The two meetings between these sides last season saw the Robins take four points with a 2-0 home victory and a 1-1 draw at Loftus Road. Idrissa Sylla has scored in two of his last four against City.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Given the way that both sides have started the season it is hard to place any faith in either in the match markets and as such I would look to other markets for the bets. QPR have yet to be behind in any of their three going into the interval and I think they will want to concentrate on keeping things tight at first so taking the game to be level at half-time makes sense. This then should mean a cagey opening 45 and as time goes on the game will open so look for the second-half to feature the most goals.

Game to be level at half-time.

Second 45 minutes to be the highest scoring half.

Queens Park Rangers Preview

The Rs sit bottom of the Championship and are one of only two sides (Reading are the other) to have not taken a point from their first three. The expected goals data suggests that this is fair as they also sit bottom of this table. At Loftus Road, they lost 2-1 to Sheffield United though they did beat Peterborough 2-0 in the League Cup. Each of the last five (and seven of their last eight) the London side have played at their own ground have seen both teams find the back of the net. Though QPR have lost all three matches in the league this season they have not been behind going into the interval in any of them. None of their players have scored more than one while Massimo Luongo has yet to net but is averaging three shots per fixture.

Queens Park Rangers Team News

Sean Goss (back) and Darnell Furlong (knee) are both expected to miss out.

Bristol City Preview

The Robins have also struggled to start this season picking up two points with two draws and one defeat. They sit in 19th place with the expected goals data table having them a little higher in 16th. Away from Ashton Gate, they have a 2-2 draw with Bolton this season which extends their run to 13 without a victory in the league. They have conceded a total of eight goals from their last five on the road. Six of the last eight that Bristol City have played in the Championship have seen both teams find the back of the net. Andreas Weimann has netted two of their three league goals this season.

Bristol City Team News

Famara Diedhiou (suspension) and Hakeeb Adelakun (unknown) are both doubts.
