Queens Park Rangers will welcome Middlesbrough to Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium for a matchday 31 fixture in England Championship. The last meeting on 18th August 2021 ended in a Queens Park Rangers 3-2 win. Both sides have met seventeen times in the most recent seasons. Queens Park Rangers has won 8 matches, and Middlesbrough triumphed in 7. Recent outings average 3.18 goals, while both teams score 53% of the time.
Queens Park Rangers’s last game in the England Championship against Reading at home ended in a 4-0 win. Although Queens P Rangers played less with the ball than their opponent, it was enough to get the result they were hoping for. Queens Park Rangers was dangerous in both halves and scored in the 13rd, 35th, 37th and 51st minute.
Middlesbrough’s recent game against Coventry City ended in a home 1-0 win. Although The Boro didn’t match their opponent’s intensity and quality while on possession, it was still enough. Middlesbrough deserved to score in the second half and did so in the 58th minute.
Since the start of the season, Queens Park Rangers is more dominant at home. They have eight wins out of 15 games on home soil. Queens P Rangers’s good defensive display is key to their success. They didn’t concede in 53% of home games.
Middlesbrough has picked up 15 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Middlesbrough wins 1.23 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Middlesbrough kept a clean sheet in just 31% of their visits.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Draw or Middlesbrough.
Still, I expect a close game and don’t think that we will see a lot of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 1.99 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 25% of Queens Park Rangers’s home and Middlesbrough’s away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
