Tottenham Hotspur will want to defend its 5th place in the Premier League table from Liverpool this weekend by defeating visiting Queens Park Rangers.
Sunday’s match will be the first meeting between these sides since 1995 – a year the teams met three times in Premiership competition, with the Spurs winning two of these clashes and QPR taking one win.
The Spurs are on a solid run of form, having lost just one of their last ten matches. The club is unbeaten in six fixtures, and has won six of its last eight matches.
These results have been the result of strong attack, with 10 goals scored in the last five games alone. Defence has been less spectacular, letting in 5 goals in the same period.
While QPR’s recent record is more patchy, with two wins, two draws and a loss on record for the last five matches, the club will be feeling quietly confident after beating high-flying Chelsea on the weekend.
The upset of the season was achieved with strong defence, as the QPR strikers continue to look muted with 6 goals in five games.
While the club has conceded 8 goals in five matches, a 6 goal loss to Fulham skews perceptions somewhat, as the club has achieved two clean sheets in the last five games, and conceded only two goals in its other two matches.
This match will create an interesting struggle as Tottenham’s fluid attack meets a strong QPR defence.
The Spurs should have the edge to win this match, although there’s no telling what QPR can do with some self-belief. The Spurs defence is just loose enough for QPR to penetrate, and this match could well become a real contest.
With these factors in mind, we’re expeting a fairly low-scoring fixture on Sunday, with the match to be decided by 1 or 2 goals. Our Tottenham Hotspur vs. QPR betting tip is therefore to back Under 2.75 goals being scored in the Over/Under Goals betting markets.
