QPR vs Watford Prediction & Betting tips
Friday evening the first eighth finals in the FA Cup is on the program. Queens Park Rangers and Watford are allowed to top off on Loftus Road.
Queens Park Rangers:
Queens Park Rangers is in a bad period. The formation of manager Steve McClaren lost the last five Championship-duels and has been waiting for a victory for seven league matches in a row. The last win was QPR at the end of 2018 and due to all the loss of the past two months, the club from West-London sinks further and further away in the ranking. Due to all the bad results the pressure increases on McClaren, which with QPR is in sixteenth place in the Championship. In that respect, the season is already over for Queens Park Rangers, because the playoffs are impossible and with a score of 39 QPR will not degrade anymore. At least, assuming that McClaren gets some points with QPR in the last fifteen games of this season.
At QPR they had a weekend off last weekend. Last Tuesday, McClaren’s team did have league commitments. For QPR, the away game at Bristol City, which had won the eight matches, was on the program. It seemed for a long time that Queens Park Rangers would put an end to the victory series of The Robins. Especially when the 1-1 was on the scoreboard a few minutes before time in the Ashton Gate Stadium. Still, they had to settle for a defeat at QPR, as keeper Joe Lumley had to pass a Bristol City penalty in the absolute final phase. Despite the fact that QPR had to settle for a 2-1 defeat at Bristol City, the club from West London did not even feel so bad against The Robins. The advantage that Queens Park Rangers has against Watford on Friday night is that given the recent form, it has nothing to lose against The Hornets and with that thought McClaren also sends his men into the field.
The pressure is Friday night completely at the Watford of Javi Gracia. That is logical, because Watford is a subtopper in the Premier League and Queens Park Rangers is only a gray mouse in the Championship. In the previous round, Watford paid off with Newcastle United by winning 0-2 at St. James’ Park and if The Hornets were able to eliminate Newcastle United, a good result on Loftus Road should also be possible. Gracia can also send his strongest team into the field against Queens Park Rangers, as next week Friday, the next game is scheduled for Watford.
Last Saturday Watford was last in action and that was against Everton. On Vicarage Road, an important duel was scheduled for both The Hornets and The Toffees. This of course has everything to do with the fierce battle that is going on in the Premier League for seventh place. Watford won 1-0 from Everton by a goal from Andre Gray and that’s why The Hornets in the area of Wolverhampton Wanderers, that seventh and two points more than the team of Gracia. If Watford finishes the season as seventh, then that yields a lot of compliments, but no prize. The Hornets can still win medals in the FA Cup. Watford is definitely an outsider for the cup win, because with a bit of a lucky draw, The Hornets can make it to the final. On paper only Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United – those last two teams play Monday against each other – have a better team than Watford.
