Our football match prediction:
Cardiff City seem to be jealous on fellow Welsh outfit Swansea City, who play in the Premier League. The Bluebirds are eager to return to the English top flight as soon as possible and they have been producing outstanding performances in the Championship at the start of the 2017/2018 season. Cardiff City recorded a win in each of their four league games and they are brimming with confidence ahead of the visit of QPR. The Hoops, on the other hand, sit in seventh place in the standings and they did well to beat Hull City in front of home fans at the weekend. Cardiff City, though, seem to be on top of their game at the moment and seeing that coach Neil Warnock is obviously doing a great job with the Welsh club, we predict that the Bluebirds are going to keep their 100% record intact with a win over QPR.
Highlighted Player (Aron Gunnarson):
Aron Gunnarson started his youth career at Akureyri and after making 11 appearances for the senior team, he joined AZ Alkmaar in 2006. The midfielder, who was born on 22 April, 1988, was not happy at AZ as he played no more than one game for the Dutch outfit in two seasons and, as a result, he decided to leave the club on 17 June, 2008. The Icelandic footballer signed a three-year deal with Coventry City and it has to be noted that he scored 6 goals in 123 league appearances for the English club. On 8 July, 2011, he joined Cardiff City on a free transfer and he made 45 appearances for the Welsh outfit in the 2014/2015 Championship campaign, scoring four goals for the club. Aron Gunnarson, though, played just 28 games for the Bluebirds in the 2015/2016 season and you should have in mind that he netted two goals for the team in the league. Gunnarson represented Iceland at the 2016 Euro finals and he made his 64th appearance for the national team at the tournament in France.
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.
