Queens Park Rangers vs Fulham Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Friday evening (19:45) live TV game is an all London affair between two sides in mid-table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. QPR had Luke Freeman to thank in midweek as his 87th minute goal rescued them a point at Barnsley. It would have been harsh on the Rs if they came home with nothing as they saw more of the ball and created the stronger chances. Fulham secured three points on Tuesday night as they defeated Nottingham Forest 3-1 at the City Ground. As suggested, Stefan Johansen found the back of the net as did Aboubakar Kamara and Neeskens Kebano but the expected goals statistics show that the result probably flattered them a little. These two sides battled out a 1-1 draw at Loftus Road last season with Chris Martin and Ryan Manning getting the goals. Five of their last six meetings have gone over 2.5 goals with three going over 3.5.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Fulham are coming into a nice run of form and I would not want to take them on now but I also would not want to back them to win at Loftus Road at those prices as no side has done that this season in the league. Stefan Johansen did the business us for in midweek and he continues to look over-priced in his role just behind the front-man so I would take the Norwegian to score here with the each-way option on him to score at any time. Given that around 60% of goals that both teams have scored this season have come in the second-half I like taking the second 45 minutes to be the highest scoring in this game.

Queens Park Rangers Preview

It has been a bit of a slow run for the Rs who have not won any of their last four league games though three of these have ended in a draw. Going into this fixture they sit in 14th place with 13 points taken from their first ten games. At home, they have been strong this season winning each of their first three before going on to draw their last two. Three of their last four at Loftus Road have gone over 2.5 goals and seen both teams score. Just four of the 12 scored at their ground this season have come in the opening 45 minutes of the match. Around 60% of the goals they have scored at all grounds have come in the second-half.

Queens Park Rangers Team News

Jordan Cousins (hamstring), Grant Hall (knee) and James Perch (dislocated kneecap) are all doubtful while Nedum Onuoha (hamstring) is out until December.

Fulham Preview

Four points from their last two games and just one defeat in their last six league games has seen the Cottagers climb the table. They now sit in the top-half and will be unhappy with anything less than a top six finish this season. On the road, it has been a mixed bag with two victories, two draws and one defeat which came at Burton. Seven of the 12 goals they have netted this season have come on their travels with six in their last three. Aboubakar Kamara has netted in each of his last two and if he can be the goalscorer Fulham have lacked then they really push on for promotion. 58% of the goals they have scored have come in the 15 minutes before the interval and before the end of the game.

Fulham Team News

Floyd Ayite (hamstring) is a doubt while Tom Cairney (knee) and Lucas Piazon (broken leg) are both ruled out.
