Birmingham vs QPR Predictions
As Birmingham City prepares to host Queens Park Rangers (QPR) in the Championship clash at St. Andrews, football enthusiasts are gearing up for what promises to be an exciting encounter. In this article, we’ll delve into our predictions and offer some betting tips for the match.
Birmingham Ready to Bounce Back
Birmingham City started their Championship season with an impressive five-match unbeaten streak. However, their momentum was temporarily halted by two away defeats. Fortunately for the Blues, they remain unbeaten at home, with victories against Leeds and Plymouth and a draw with Millwall.
On the other hand, QPR has had a mixed start to their campaign. While they’ve secured two victories on the road, they’ve also suffered defeats against Watford and Southampton.
It’s worth noting that Birmingham’s current manager, John Eustace, played a significant role in QPR’s backroom staff before departing in the summer of 2022. Leveraging his knowledge of the Rangers, Eustace guided his Birmingham side to home victories and successes on the road against QPR in the 2022-23 season. With that background, Birmingham looks poised to return to their winning ways.
Back Goals in Brum
Recent fixtures involving both Birmingham and QPR have been characterized by entertaining, high-scoring affairs. In fact, the “both teams to score” bet has hit the mark in three of their last four respective Championship outings.
While Birmingham recorded wins to nil in both of their meetings with QPR last season, they’ve struggled to maintain clean sheets this season, managing only two in seven league games in 2023-24. In comparison, QPR has secured just one clean sheet, which came in their 2-0 win against Middlesbrough.
Considering Birmingham’s home advantage, it’s reasonable to anticipate a home victory at St. Andrew’s. However, QPR has consistently found the back of the net in their last four games, hinting at a potential goal-filled contest.
Nonetheless, despite their recent away difficulties, Birmingham’s comfort on their home turf might be the edge they need to clinch a 2-1 victory.
