Cardiff vs QPR Predictions

Cardiff will certainly look upon this as a ‘must win game’ and given they are much stronger at home than away they may think that about all their remaining home games. The Bluebirds are currently only one place outside the top six however they trail 6th place Sheffield Wednesday by 5 points with only 5 games to go. Cardiff do still have to travel to Hillsborough though so if they can cut the deficit to less than 3 points by then, that has the potential to be a mini play-off of sorts so all is not lost for the Welsh club but they did fall to a 2-1 defeat at struggling Fulham last time out.

QPR are 8 points further back in 11th place and heading for an unremarkable mid-table finish in their first year since relegation from the top flight. The beat struggling Charlton 2-1 at home last time out and are a tough side to beat. Since New Year’s Day they have only lost 3 of their 16 Championship matches although they have drawn more than they’ve won. That has certainly been the case on the road where they have only lost once in the league in 2016 but 6 of their 8 away matches this calendar year have finished in draws.

Therefore Cardiff are really going to need to work for this win but their extra motivation and need for the points might see them home. They’ve won 4 of their last 5 league games at the Cardiff City Stadium and have only lost twice at home in the league in the last 12 months so it is certainly difficult to see QPR winning this. Both teams have scored in all of QPR’s last 4 matches and 3 of Cardiff’s last 4 so backing Cardiff to win 2-1 at 8/1 looks a good shout here.
