QPR took the first defeat of the season last weekend, while the swans still have a white plumage in defeat. The score is one of five unbeaten teams in the championship. That the kickers from the west of the country start so successfully, was not necessarily expected.
With Oliver McBurnie they lost their clear best striker and in the person of Daniel James another important offensive player on the left side. These disposals could not be adequately compensated as the financial situation in Swansea is strained. Painful change also had to accept the host.
Soccer Betting Prediction QPR vs Swansea
The Queens Park Rangers relinquished their top offensive trio from last season to clubs from the House of Lords, but striker Nahki Wells is now available again. The other personal bloodletting was, in contrast to Swansea, less well tolerated so far – at least in terms of results.
Although it was a first-round victory in promotion aspirants Stoke City at the beginning of the season, but then followed no more success. In the upcoming game between QPR and Swansea, we decide that there will be goals on both sides and that the score will fall short of 2.5 hits.
The playful level of the clubs is the same and the home advantage of the Londoners is compensated by the slightly better form of the Jacks. For goals speak the previously stable offensive performances and more vulnerable defensive series.
QPR – Statistics & Current Form
Coach Mark Warburton has certainly breathed a few days ago. With the return of Nahki Wells situation on the offensive has relaxed a bit.
The Bermudan striker had returned to Burnley in the summer after the end of his loan, but has now surprisingly been relegated to Loftus Road. In the Blue and White Wells was last season – in addition to the sold Luke Freeman – top scorer.
“In the first half we were very, very good. Then there was a drop in concentration, but other than that, I think we completely dominated the match. ” – QPR coach Warburton via club website after the defeat in Bristol
The runner-up of 1976 delivered in the previous year from a very weak season, at the end of only the 19th Rank jumped out. After defeating Stoke and drawing a draw against relegated Huddersfield, last weekend saw their first defeat of the current season. With 0: 2 had the Super Hoops beaten at the Robins of Bristol City.
However, this was an unfortunate defeat as the Londoners performed at least equal and even created more opportunities. It was already the second meeting of the two clubs within a week. Only four days earlier, QPR and Bristol faced each other in the EFL Cup, with the Warbuton team winning on penalties.
The coach is especially concerned about the defensive. This is not a new topic at QPR, because the defense network had already in 2018/2019 on the fourth worst balance in the championship. Also in the first four competitive games this season, the defense presents wobbly. Read on no clean sheet and on average almost two goals conceded per game.
The new signing Jan Mlakar is also unlikely to run aground. The striker came from Slovenian champions NK Maribor, where Mlakar netted the Prva Liga in more than one game every season.
Expected lineup of QPR:
➤ Lumley – Barbet – Hall – Rangel – Manning – Cameron – Amos – Smith – Osayi – Samuel – Eze – Hugill

Swansea – Statistics & Current Form
The previous decade aims for the playoffs in his second year in the championship. However, this endeavor could prove difficult. After relegation from the Premier League, which hosted the League Cup winner for seven years in 2013, the club is plagued by financial worries.
Although these are not existentially, larger jumps for new reinforcements were not in summer. As a result, the nearly $ 40 million in revenue generated by the sales of top striker Oliver McBurnie (Sheffield United) and left winger Daniel James (Manchester United) were not reinvested in new players.
Instead, only lending transactions or the obligation of transfer-free player took place. Only for Kristoffer Peterson of Heracles Almelo, the modest sum of about half a million euros was taken in the hand. Due to this approach, the loss of quality due to the disposals could not of course be completely compensated.
However, the end of Borja Baston’s loan to Deportivo Alves from the La Liga has paid off. The attacker scored in two of his three league games and even contributed a double in his recent win over Preston North End. In QPR against Swansea thus the odds for a successful goal of the Spaniard are worth considering.
The run of Baston should certainly be pleased also the new Welsh coach Steve Cooper. The only 39-year-old coached the troupe since June this year as successor to Graham Potter, who now works in the Premier League at Brighton & Hove Albion.
For Cooper, it is the first head coach in the professional field, after having previously held the sporting responsibility for the U-16 and U-17 of England. So far, the young coach has managed but that the benefits have not fallen off despite the departures. The Jacks are unbeaten seasonally since mid-April and already showed in the preparation of a solid constitution.
This was readable because all six friendly matches were won, although quite strong opponents such as Atalanta Bergamo were on the plan. In the current season victories against Hull City and last time against Preston North End were retracted. In addition, there is a draw against Derby County, which had reached in the last season at least the playoff final of the promotion relegation.
In the EFL Cup also succeeded in the past week, a 3-1 home win against Northampton Town, but is home only in the fourth-rate League Two.
Expected lineup of Swansea:
➤ Woodman – Rodon – Bidwell – van der Hoorn – Grimes – Fulton – Roberts – Dyer – Celina – Kalulu – Baston
Last Games from Swansea:
⚽️ 17.08.2019 – Swansea City Vs. Preston North End 3: 2 (Championship)
