Reason For QPR vs Fulham Predictions

  • Neither side have scored since the restart
  • Fulham have only scored 1.05 goals per away game this term.
  • 68% of the visitors’ games have seen under 2.5 goals scored.
  • Fulham have won four of their last seven visits to QPR.

London rivals sliding

It’s been a tough June for both QPR and Fulham. The pair have lost both games so far, neither of them have scored a goal. For QPR back to back 1-0 losses have all but ended their playoff ambitions. Meanwhile, Fulham have been beaten by two of the top three, which has seen them slip from third to fifth in just two matches.

Their seven-point lead over seventh has to be preserved, so Scott Parker needs his side firing. However, his team were the wrong kind of fired up at Leeds which may have left them a little light due to suspensions. Will this short trip to the quiet Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium be a turning point for the Cottagers.

Fulham left short

Fulham have had just eight different goalscorers in the Championship this season, fewer than any other side (excluding own goals). That come down to two factors, their ability to edge games with a solid defence and their reliance on Aleksandar Mitrovic. That’s been a problem for them since the restart, as the Serbian hasn’t looked up to speed in his two games back. He’s also in line for a suspension, following his elbow on Ben White at the weekend.

Mitrovic has scored 23 of Fulham’s 52 goals so far. That’s an impressive haul, but they could now be disadvantaged. They already had issues on the road, scoring just 20 times in 19 trips. That’s seen 68% of their games finish with under 2.5 goals. They were slightly humbled at the weekend, but even after their 3-0 loss they’ve still only conceded 20 in 19 away trips. Their defensive record could well improve here, based on the R’s attacking record.

R’s off the pace

Before the enforced break, QPR were unbeaten in six Championship games (W3 D3), averaging five shots on target per match in these six games. Since the restart, the Hoops have lost both games, averaging 1.5 shots on target per match. Those came against Charlton and Barnsley, two sides struggling against the drop. Despite their poor restart, only four sides have conceded fewer goals than Fulham this season. We expect the visitors to keep it quiet, so under 2.5 goals is our pick here.

QPR have won two of their last 15 league matches against Fulham (D3 L10) and are winless in their last four against their west London rivals (D2 L2). Meanwhile, Fulham have lost just one of their last seven away league matches against QPR (W4 D2), losing 2-1 in the Premier League in 2012-13. With that in mind, this looks like a perfect chance for the Cottagers to turn their form around. As a result, a 1-0 win for Fulham is our correct score prediction.
