Queens Park Rangers vs Cardiff City in the Championship on Mar 5. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Two sides at the opposite ends of the Championship table clash at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium on Saturday afternoon, as play-off hopefuls Queens Park Rangers entertain 20th placed Cardiff City.

Neither side come into the game with any great deal of momentum, but with home advantage and a superior position in the league, it’s not surprising to see QPR as favourites to claim all three points with popular betting sites.

The visitors may be just two places above the relegation zone, but there’s still a sizable gap between the Welsh side and any form of trouble as things stand.

Queens Park Rangers To Win By One Goal

Both teams have lost three of their last five games in the Championship (prior to Cardiff facing Derby in midweek), but it’s worth concentrating on their home and away form here.

QPR are unbeaten in their last seven games at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium in all competitions, whereas Cardiff have lost four of their last five on their travels.

Other than a 4-0 win against Reading, though, the hosts haven’t really been blowing opponents away on their own patch. Taking on a lowly Cardiff, they’ll of course see this as a perfect opportunity to get another win on the board, but it could be a close affair in regards to the scoreline.

Four of the Rs’ last six victories at home have come by a single goal, and they’ve drawn quite a few in that period too. They have the quality to edge this contest, but Cardiff will put up a strong resolve. All of the Bluebirds’ last four away games in the league have been decided by one goal (three defeats, and one win).

So, with these things in mind, we like the chances of a slender home success. Therefore, our selection is Queens Park Rangers To Win By One Goal at odds of 14/5 with LeoVegas

Queens Park Rangers Form, squad news, opinion

It’s been a bit of a patchy start to this calendar year for Mark Warburton’s men, but QPR are still firmly in the play-off mix - sitting in 5th place.

Their current form away from the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium has to be seen as a slight worry, though. They’ve lost their last four matches on their travels in all competitions, and they haven’t scored a single goal in that time.

So, they’ll be more than happy to be back on their own patch here, taking on a team they’ve had plenty of joy against in the last few years.

With games against other play-off hopefuls - in the shape of Luton Town and Nottingham Forest - on the horizon after this, this is one where Warburton will be hoping his side can start building some momentum from.

Cardiff City Form, squad news, opinion

With twelve games remaining in Cardiff's Championship campaign, their season has the potential of petering out a bit.

They’ll still be looking over their shoulder a tad at the relegation situation, but as it stands, they’re thirteen points clear of 22nd placed Barnsley.

The Bluebirds may have lost their last two against Huddersfield Town and Fulham respectively, but they were only by single-goal margins, and both of those opponents are in great form at present.

Cardiff have won just one of their last seven Championship away games (against a struggling Barnsley side), so although they’re likely to be competitive here, it’s tough to have any confidence in them getting the win.

History

The Hoops certainly come out on top in the head-to-head department. QPR have won the last four meetings between the sides, and that includes a 6-1 home victory two years ago. Cardiff have failed to win at QPR since 2010.

Their clash at the Cardiff City Stadium earlier this season saw Rangers come away with a 1-0 victory thanks to an Andre Gray goal.

About the Venue

To many, the home residence of Queens Park Rangers will be known as Loftus Road. In 2019, however, the decision was made to rename the stadium in honour of former QPR youth team player Kiyan Prince, who was fatally stabbed in 2006. After a fan vote, the ground was renamed the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

It holds a maximum of 18,439 supporters and was built in 1904.

Conclusion

A lot is pointing towards this being a tight match. QPR have been solid at home all season, and they may be encountering a Cardiff side here who have started to falter a tad away from home, but Steve Morison’s team are not easy to get the better of.
