Stoke City vs Queens Park Rangers Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides in the middle-third of the Championship table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Stoke stretched their unbeaten run to four matches with a second successive goalless draw this time at Nottingham Forest. A draw at the City Ground was probably a fair reflection of a tight game that was low on chances and quality.

QPR won their fourth from their last five with a London derby victory 3-2 when hosting Brentford. Massimo Luongo, Joel Lynch and Nahki Wells got a goal each to give the Rs a deserved three points.

These two sides have not since the 2014/15 Premier League season so it is hard to read too much into the head-to-head record. For what it is worth the Potters are unbeaten in their last four with the Rs.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

I like the look of a draw here which has happened in three of the last four Stoke have played while QPR have seen each of their last three settled by one goal meaning there has not been much to choose between the teams.

It also might be worth a correct score bet on the game to end goalless as has happened in the last two for the Potters.

Stoke City Preview

The Potters are now four unbeaten and have lost just one of their last eight and are bouncing back from a slow start to the season. They sit in 14th though the expected goals data has them lower down in 19th.

At the Bet365 Stadium, it has been a mixed bag of late with two victories, one draw and two defeats from their last five. Just one of the last five the Staffordshire outfit have played at home has gone over 2.5 goals.

A lack of goals has been an issue for Stoke this season with just 19 netted giving them the joint-sixth worst attacking returns. Their defence has shipped 20 times but just two times in their last seven.

 

Stoke City Team News

Tom Ince (hernia) and Ibrahim Afellay (knee) are doubts.

Queens Park Rangers Preview

The Rs have won four of their last five and lost just one of their last seven to continue a remarkable turnaround after a poor start. They sit in tenth place whlle the expected goals data has them in ninth.

Away from Loftus Road, they have been dangerous of late winning two of their last three and three of their last five. None of their last four and just one of their last six on the road has seen both teams net.

A lack of goals has been an issue for QPR this season with just 18 netted though nine of these have come in their last five. Their defence has been solid shipping 22 times and they have kept clean sheets in four of their last six.

 

Queens Park Rangers Team News

Tomer Hemed (groin) is a doubt while Olamide Shodipo (thigh) is a long-term absentee.
