The hosts are the team of the hour in the championship. Looking back over the last ten games, no other club was better than the Robins. Currently, the club is in 6th place and thus has best chances to reach the playoffs for the third promotion place in the Premier League. Should it work with the passage to the upper house, it would be a return after 39 years! For their part, the guests were represented in the Premier League for the last time in 2015 and will probably occupy a similar position to the 16th place in the preseason this season.
So the Hoops did not win any more for six matchdays. However, last week’s FA Cup brought another sense of accomplishment as the London side beat Portsmouth FC 2-0 to take a 1-1 win in the first round. In Bristol City vs QPR, the hosts are favored according to the odds. However, the tip goes in a different direction. The hosts have a poor record in the first half of their home games, which is why at Bristol City vs QPR, the prediction is that the guests had to record at least at break time, no residue.
Bristol City – Statistics & Current Form
The Robins have regained their home strength in recent weeks. With only three wins and four defeats and five draws in the first twelve games of the season at Ashton Gate, Bristol City FC’s recent run has been no less than five successes in the championship and FA Cup. In the latter competition Huddersfield Town from the Premier League and following the league rivals Bolton Wanderers were turned off before their own backdrop. Thanks to the success of the club can now compete in a few days in the second round against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The victories in the league were indeed against clubs like Swansea City or Rotherham United, who are ranked in the table behind the club, or in the case of Bolton even table second last, but before also good performances were called against top teams in the championship. This can be read in the two draws against Brentford FC and Norwich City. Overall, the runner-up of 1907 is now undefeated for eight home games.
In addition to the regained home strength, Bristol is also currently playing abroad with great success: five of the youngest six away games were won, plus a draw at Derby County, whereby the team of coach Lee Johnson lost none of the last 14 matches. An important factor in the rising form of Bristol in recent weeks is the stable defense. She has conceded only 29 goals in 30 league games – a value that only undercuts the Middlesbrough FC.

Fielding – Webster – Kalas – Dasilva – Wright – Pack – O’Dowda – Brownhill – Paterson – Weimann – Diedhiou

QPR – Statistics & Current Form
The Super Hoops started with four defeats in the season and then presented themselves much more consistent. In recent weeks, the runner-up of 1976 in his performance has fallen off again. The series of defeats at the start was discontinued on the last matchdays. The League Cup winners of 1967 suffered in recent weeks mainly from the defeats of important players such as Geoff Cameron in midfield, who came before the season from Premier League relegated Stoke City. The American is suffering from an ankle injury and will continue to be unable to play.
Another example of prominent injuries to the Rs is Spanish defender Angel Rangel. The newcomer to Swansea City has a thigh injury that also prevents him from playing in the upcoming match. In addition, QPR had to renounce the services of the Israeli Tomer Hemed in the storm, which was just as committed to last summer by Brighton & Hove Albion. However, he is now fit again and came at least in the FA Cup in the last week ever to a short-term. However, he stayed on the bench in the 3: 4 last Saturday against Birmingham City. In the match, QPR had almost reached a draw after a 4-0 interim, but due to a missed penalty in the 93rd minute, the grand catching up was not rewarded.

Lumley – Furlong – Leistner – Lynch – Bidwell – Freeman – Luongo – Scowen – Wszolek – Eze – Wells
