QPR vs Fulham in the EFL Championship on April 2, 2022 – Odds & Prediction

QPR vs Fulham in the EFL Championship on April 2, 2022 – Odds & Prediction

Having been seemingly coasting towards the Championship title, a little stumble prior to the international break has left Fulham with work to do to wrap up top spot.

Marco Silva’s side do still boast an eight-point lead over nearest rivals Bournemouth, while third-placed Luton Town are six points further adrift.

With that in mind, it still very much looks like the Cottagers are heading back to the Premier League next season barring an almighty collapse, but they’ll want to finish in style and cap the year off with a title.

As for QPR, they remain firmly in the hunt for a playoff spot as they sit in eighth place ahead of kick-off, but just two points adrift of the final playoff berth as they are deep in the pack chasing promotion.

Mark Warburton’s men also stuttered before the break, and so it will have been a good time to reset and prepare for the season run-in as they try to put together a strong finish.

Fulham to win by 3 goals

It won’t be easy for the visitors at Loftus Road, but the numbers so far this season for both sides tell a story.

Fulham are the league’s highest goalscorers having found the back of the net a staggering 90 times in 37 games, with the next best side managing 59.

Combine that with QPR conceding 48 goals in 38 games, which gives them the worst defensive record of the top 15 sides in the standings, it makes quite the recipe for disaster for the hosts.

While they have the quality to get on the mark themselves, it may prove to be nothing more than a consolation effort with a free-scoring Fulham side also boasting the second-best defensive record in the Championship.

With that in mind, we can’t ignore the odds of 5/1 – available with bet365 as well with all of the reliable sports betting websites – for a Fulham win with at least three goals scored by the away side.

QPR Form, squad news, opinion

QPR lost two on the bounce prior to the international break and have lost four of their last five outings in the league.

That is not form conducive to mounting a serious promotion push, and so they’ll be desperate to put things right and get back on track.

With no notable fresh injury news, Warburton will hope to have as many key options at his disposal as possible, but whether it’s enough to get the better of the league-leaders remains to be seen as they don’t have the same quality across the pitch, which is naturally reflected in the current league standings.

Fulham form, squad news, opinion

Equally, Fulham’s form prior to the break didn’t reflect their position in the table as they suffered defeat to West Brom last time out, which came after a 1-1 draw away at Barnsley.

In turn, Silva will hope to see his side regain the form that saw them score 10 goals and concede just two in the four games previous to that, as they certainly have set the standard in the Championship this year.

Anthony Knockaert has been sidelined since the start of last month, but that setback aside, the Cottagers are in a good place as they look to string a solid run of form together in the coming weeks.

With the squad depth and quality in the starting XI, they’ve been a cut above the rest of the league for most of the year and will be confident of getting themselves back on track this weekend.

History

In 41 previous meetings, Fulham have prevailed on 20 occasions, with seven draws and 14 wins for QPR.

In the last seven encounters between these two sides, Fulham have won five, four of which have come on the spin now after their 4-1 win in the reverse fixture earlier this season, along with two draws.

With that in mind, it’s clear that Silva’s side have the advantage going into this game as they have built an ominous run of results against their London rivals in more recent times.

About the Venue

Loftus Road has a capacity of just over 18,000 and the home side will be backed by a lively crowd as they hope to secure a real boost in their bid for promotion.

However, in 20 home games so far this season, QPR have won nine, drawn six and lost five, scoring 28 goals and conceding 20.

Unsurprisingly, Fulham have been strong on the road, winning 11 of 18 away days while scoring 45 goals and conceding just 16. Having won on their last three trips to Loftus Road, they’ll relish the chance to make it four in a row.

Conclusion

Ultimately, it’s hard to look past Fulham in this game such has been their dominant run so far this season.

Such is the competitiveness of the Championship and with a derby feel to this one, there is every chance that QPR could upset the odds and send the league leaders home empty-handed.

However, all the key factors point toward a Fulham win, and with their prolific attack combined with QPR’s porous defence, they shouldn’t have too many problems scoring and in turn securing all three points.
