Bristol City v Queens Park Rangers Tips & Predictions
17th August 2019 – 15:00
Match Preview & Team News
Bristol City and QPR will take on each other for the second time in just four days on Saturday. They’ve produced a six-goal thriller in mid-week’s League Cup tie which saw the Hoops advance to the second round on penalties as the regular game ended in a thrilling 3-3 draw at Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.
Both managers mixed up their squads notably for the mentioned cup tie on Tuesday and this league fixture might tell a completely different story. Speaking of the form, it’s the visitors who will no doubts come into this in higher spirits.
The Hoops claimed four points from two tough opening games against the likes of Stoke City and Huddersfield Town. QPR were in control for most of the match against the Terriers last weekend, but they barely saved a point at the end only thanks to a late equalizer from their centre-back Grant Hall.
The head coach Mark Warburton can be fairly satisfied with his men’s defensive showings in recent outings if we ignore the 3-3 draw with the mixed squad in the League Cup. QPR did not concede two or more goals in four successive outings even though the opposition included serious opponents along the way.
The same can’t be said for the hosts who look vulnerable at the back at the start of the season. They shipped five in a demolishing defeat to Crystal Palace in the final warm-up before the start of the campaign and a 1-3 loss at the hands of Leeds United. The Robins snatched their maiden point seven days ago when they held Birmingham City to a 1-1 draw away at St. Andrew’s.
