Our football match prediction:
Queens Park Rangers have been struggling to find their form in the season finale. The lack of motivation seems to be a big problem for the capital club, but, as things stand now, the Hoops are likely to secure the Championship survival. QPR are six points clear of the relegation zone ahead of Matchday 44, meaning that a victory over Brentford would help them get their job done. However, beating the Bees on the road is easier said than done and we predict that the visitors will adopt a cautious approach in Saturday’s football match. Brentford outplayed the likes of Bristol City, Leeds United and Derby County in last three home games in the English second tier and they are widely expected to find the net against Queens Park Rangers. Considering that the game is of big importance for the Hoops, share of spoils appears on the horizon.
Highlighted Player (Andreas Bjelland):
Andreas Bjelland is a Danish footballer who plays for Brentford. Bjelland plays at centre back and he started his professional career in 2006. After spending three seasons at Lyngby, Bjelland joined yet another Danish outfit Nordsjaelland in 2009 and he went on to make a total of 72 appearances for the Wild Tigers. On 6 November, 2011, Bjelland signed a four-year deal with Twente but he made no more than 14 appearances for the club on his debut season due to injury. After spending six months on the sidelines with a broken metatarsal, Bjelland returned to contention and he came back fit for the 2013/2014 Eredivisie campaign. The Danish defender played in 33 games for Twente in the 2013/2014 season, while making 26 appearances for the club in his last season (2014/2015) at De Grolsch Veste. On 2 July, 2015, the highly rated centre-back joined Championship side Brentford and he has been playing for the Bees ever since. The Danish footballer, though, suffered a groin injury in pre-season and, as a result, he did not make his Brentford debut in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign.
Highlighted Team (Queens Park Rangers):
Queens Park Rangers are well known as QPR. The capital club was founded in 1886 and Loftus Road Stadium is QPR’s ground. Loftus Road Stadium was opened in 1904 and the capacity of the venue 18,439. However, it has to be noted that no less than 35,353 spectators watched the game between QPR and Leeds on 27 April, 1974. The Hoops finished the 1975/1976 First Division campaign in second position in the standings, just behind champions Liverpool. This is considered the club’s biggest success, but Queens Park Rangers made it to the FA Cup final in 1982 as well. QPR were beaten by fellow capital club Tottenham Hotspur in the title game, but they did well to lift the League Cup trophy in 1967. Queens Park’s main rivals are Brentford, Chelsea and Fulham, but other clubs based in London are considered QPR’s rivals as well. The colour of QPR’s shirts is blue and white.
