QPR vs Swansea – Prediction, Odds and Betting Tips – 21.08.2019

QPR vs Swansea

Though spirited in their home opener of 2019/20, QPR have been poor at home over the past year. Tellingly, only the three relegated Championship sides of 2018/19 picked up fewer than QPR’s 30 points in the home league table last season, though 81.81% of the West London club’s 11 home league defeats came by just a one-goal margin.
Mark Warburton’s QPR also suffered their first scoring blank this term in their last game. Though this is demoralising, their home record against Swansea is a good one, with the ‘Rs’ failing to score just once in eight competitive home games vs Swansea this century (W5, D2, L1).
Swansea manager Steve Cooper has enjoyed a positive start to his time at the club, even though defence remains an area for improvement. So far, three of his four competitive games in charge have seen Swansea win, despite conceding the opener in all three of those victories.
Encouraging though Swansea’s fighting spirit is, there is a significant away record for them to amend if the chance arises, with the ‘Swans’ failing to recover a single point from any away league game in 2018/19 where they trailed at the break.
Players to watch: QPR’s Jordan Hugill scored within ten minutes of his debut in a 2-1 victory, though his only career appearance vs Swansea ended in a goalless draw.
Returning Swansea star Borja Bastón made it three goals in as many Championship games, with goals either side of the break last time out.
Stat attack: QPR have conceded the opener, and then equalised, in both of their competitive home games this season.
Five of Swansea’s last seven away league games have seen at least one team fail to score.
QPR have received 18 bookings across the last six H2Hs (3.0 per match average).
