Match: Cardiff vs. QPR Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: Sunday, 14 August, 2016
Start time: 15:00 UK
In the only match of the Championship of England on Sunday the team of Cardiff hosts QPR.
Last season Cardiff finished in eighth place with 68 points, six less than playoffs place. Their rival QPR finished on 12th position, having played a little weak season. Guests, however, started better this season after winning in the first round, while Cardiff drew 0:0 away against Birmingham.
In the middle of this week, Cardiff was eliminated sensational in the tournament for the League Cup after losing 0:1 after extra time away to Bristol Rovers. Meanwhile, QPR eliminated Swindon Town. Their success did not come so easy after winning on penalties after a 2:2 in regular time and extra time. They continued the winning streak, having defeated Leeds United 3:0 in the first round of Championship.
Last season both teams failed to win once in Cardiff ended in a 0:0, but in London – 2:2. Now I expect once а close match between them. Guests have a slight advantage in the statistics against Cardiff but is unlikely to win easily the three points at “Cardiff City Stadium”. Both teams have the potential to finish in the top six at the end of the season, so expect an interesting match and it is likely to see new equality in this rivalry .
