Queens Park Rangers vs Sheffield Wednesday Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Tuesday evening (19:45) fixture is live on Sky Sports (behind the red button) and features two teams in the middle third of the division. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

QPR are now unbeaten in their last three following a 2-0 road victory at Ipswich at the weekend.  hey took the lead through an own-goal and then extended it through a Tomer Hemed penalty to give them a deserved three points.

Sheffield Wednesday saw their four-game unbeaten run come to an end on Friday night suffering a 2-1 home loss to Middlesbrough. After going two down Adam Reach put them back in it in the 82nd minute and despite some pressure they could find no way past a stubborn visiting rearguard.

The two meetings between the pair last season saw the London side take four points with a 4-2 home victory and a 1-1 draw at Hillsborough. The Owls have lost just one of the previous seven battles.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

It is hard to get too excited about QPR at those odds and if I was leaning one way it would be towards the visitors though the draw is the most likely of all three results. Instead, I would look to one of the other markets for my interest.

The last six Sheffield Wednesday games have seen exactly three goals so teaming this with two goals in the total goals market makes sense. 65% of the goals the Owls have scored have come in the second-half so back this to be their highest scoring 45 minute.

Queens Park Rangers Preview

The Rs tend to be a streaky team with good runs followed by bad ones and this explains why they sit in the middle third in 16th. They now face three of their next four at their own ground and will hope to use this to climb the table.

At Loftus Road, they have struggled a little with just two victories in six, losing three times and drawing once. The London outfit have scored just five times at home this campaign a joint divisional low.

QPR would be as high as ninth if the table was decided on half-time scores having been behind on just three occasions this campaign. Eight of the 11 goals they have netted have come in the first-half.

 

Queens Park Rangers Team News

Darnell Furlong (ligament) is building up fitness after a long absence while Olamide Shodipo (thigh) is set to miss the next few months.

Sheffield Wednesday Preview

The Owls defeat was just their second in the last ten and they sit in 11th place in the Championship table. They now face three of their next four on the road including at local rivals Sheffeld United.

Away from Hillsborough, it has been a mixed bag with three victories and three defeats though they have won each of their last two. Each of the last four the Yorkshire side have played on the road have produced exactly three goals.

12 of the 20 league goals Sheffield Wednesday have netted have come in the second 45 minutes. It is the exact same numbers (12 of 20) when it comes to the amount of goals conceded.

 

Sheffield Wednesday Team News

Marco Matias (hamstring) is a doubt while Joost van Aken (ankle), Sam Winnall (cruciate) and Kieran Lee (knee) are closing in on returns. Gary Hooper (groin) has suffered a setback and will be out for another month at least.
