Stoke City vs. QPR Preview & Tips

Posted on by editor

12th placed Stoke City hosts 11th placed QPR at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday. The match will mark the first-ever meeting between these sides in the Premier League, and their first 1st division clash since 1984.

Stoke City vs. QPR Trends Analysis

QPR has been the dominant team in recent encounters against Stoke City, taking six wins to Stoke’s three in their last ten matches, with just one of these matches ending in a draw. In the past QPR has achieved a number of away wins at the Britannia Stadium, with three of its recent wins against Stoke scored away from home.

However, QPR’s last trip to Stoke was less successful, with Stoke City recording a 3-1 win.

Stoke City is struggling to emulate its performances of last season, and comes into this match with one win and four losses to show for its last five matches. These results saw Stoke surrender its strong run of performances at home, sustaining its first two home losses of the season in consecutive matches to Liverpool and Newcastle.

Stoke City has scored 5 goals in its last five matches. Flat attack has been overshadowed by poor defending with a whopping 14 goals conceded in the same period of time, and 5 of these sustained at the hands of Bolton on the weekend.

QPR’s recent results don’t look much better. The club has won just two of its last ten fixtures, losing five and drawing three. While QPR impressed with its recent 1-0 home win against Chelsea, it promptly lost that momentum with consecutive defeats to Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur.

QPR has scored 5 goals in its last five matches. Its defence has vied with that of Stoke for the title of worst in the Premiership, with 13 goals conceded in this period.

Stoke City vs. QPR Betting Tips

Two flat attacks come up against two weak defences on Saturday in this clash that both teams will desperately want to win. Form suggests that the team with the more resolute defence will take the match, and there’s a significant chance that this fixture could stutter to a draw.

One thing we are expecting is for the match to produce goals. With the two teams conceding a cumulative average of 5.4 goals a game over recent weeks, the chances of the two teams conceding 3 or more goals being scored in this fixture look solid.

Our Stoke City vs. QPR betting tip is therefore to go with a back bet on over 2.75 goals being scored in this fixture in the over/under goals betting market.
