. Scroll down to see all of the predictions, poll and statistics for QPR v Fulham - along with the latest match odds.
Queens Park Rangers
QPR will be hoping for a better result following a 1-0 Championship loss in their previous game against Charlton Athletic. In that game, Queens Park Rangers managed 64% possession and 6 shots at goal with 1 on target. For their opponents, Charlton Athletic got 11 attempts on goal with 4 on target. Darren Pratley (12') scored for Charlton Athletic.
It has been seldom in recent times where Queens Park Rangers haven’t conceded. The facts show that The R's have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 games, giving up 6 goals on the way. That kind of trend won’t necessarily follow through into this game, however.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that QPR:
- have not registered a win against Fulham in their previous 4 league games.
- are without a home win in the past 2 matches in the league.
Since tasting defeat last time out to Leeds United in Championship competition, Fulham will be hoping to turn things around here. In that match, Fulham managed 59% possession and 12 attempts at goal with 5 of them on target. At the other end, Leeds United got 10 attempts on goal with 5 on target. Patrick Bamford (10'), Ezgjan Alioski (56') and Jack Harrison (71') scored for Leeds United.
For 5 of the prior six games featuring Fulham, a comparatively low number of goals have been hit between them and opposing teams. The overall average goals scored per game in that spell works out to a meagre 2, with the number of goals averaged by The Cottagers being 0.83. That sort of pattern won’t necessarily be carried forward here, though.
Ahead of this clash, Fulham remain unbeaten by Queens Park Rangers in away games against them for the last 3 league matches.
Head to head
A review of their prior head-to-head clashes stretching back to 13/02/2016 shows us that QPR have won 1 of these games & Fulham 3, with the number of drawn matches standing at 2.
A combined total of 19 goals were scored between the two sides during those clashes, with 8 of them for The R's and 11 for The Cottagers. The average goals per game has been 3.17.
The last league meeting featuring the two was Championship match day 17 on 22/11/2019 when the final score was Fulham 2-1 Queens Park Rangers. In that match, Fulham managed 50% possession and 11 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. Their only player to score was Aboubakar Kamara (27', 64'). Queens Park Rangers got 19 attempts at goal with 7 of them on target. Jordan Hugill (3') scored. The match was refereed by James Linington.
Team News: QPR
QPR manager Mark Warburton will be grateful to have no fitness worries at all before this clash owing to a completely injury-free squad available for selection. Geoff Cameron will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We think that The R's could make use of the 4-2-3-1 system this time, beginning the first half with Liam Kelly, Ryan Manning, Conor Masterson, Yoann Barbet, Todd Kane, Luke Amos, Geoff Cameron, Eberechi Eze, Ilias Chair, Bright Osayi-Samuel and Jordan Hugill.
Team News: Fulham
Fulham boss Scott Parker has not got a full squad to pick from. Alfie Mawson (Knee Surgery), Maxime Le Marchand (Back Injury) and Joe Bryan (Thigh Problems) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
We are inclined to think that The Cottagers will likely begin the game with a 4-2-3-1 formation using Marek Rodak, Denis Odoi, Michael Hector, Tim Ream, Joe Bryan, Harrison Reed, Tom Cairney, Anthony Knockaert, Bobby Reid, Ivan Cavaleiro and Aleksandar Mitrovic.
We feel that QPR might have a difficult job to be putting a goal past this Fulham side who we reckon should win and very possibly keep a clean sheet. That’s why our selection here is for a highly competitive game with a 0-1 advantage for Fulham at the end of the match. Should be an interesting one.
