In the opening match of the second round of the English Championship on September 18, Coventry will host Queens Park Rangers – we have prepared a forecast for this meeting.
Coventry did not start this season very well. In the last championship, the team played in Ligue 1 and, according to its results, was able to improve its class. The debut match in the Championship turned out to be lost for the “sky blue”. Mark Robins’ charges played away against Birmingham City and were defeated 1: 2. Coventry also played in the English League Cup this season and were defeated by Gillingham, also away.
It should be noted that at home “sky-blue” play an order of magnitude better than on the road. Coventry have never lost their last 14 official home games.
The Hoops also played unsuccessfully in the League Cup. Already in the first round, the London club was defeated away from Plymouth (2: 3) and focused on the national championship. I played QPR very well in the opening round. In the confrontation with Nottingham Forest, they left no chances to the rival, having won a 2-0 win.
In general, Queens Park Rangers are not performing well on the road. In 14 previous official matches, Londoners were able to win only twice.
Coventry City and Queens Park Rangers last faced off in 2010/11. QPR won in both matches – 2: 0 and 2: 1.
The forecast “total under 2.5” has played in the last five head-to-head matches at Coventry.
Coventry haven’t conceded a goal in 8 of their last 10 home games.
QPR has won only 2 of its last 14 away matches.
Coventry play very well in home games, especially in defense, which practically does not fail. Coventry have not conceded a goal in only two of their last ten home games.
KPR , despite the victory in the first round, generally does not shine away. Of his last eight away games in the Championship, he has ended half in a draw. The team scored very little in them, but also conceded no more than a goal in seven. In our opinion, the upcoming meeting will end in a draw.
Our prediction is a draw in the match for 3.42 in BC Winline
