Our prediction for this Championship match:
Tuesday’s postponed fixture at Kenilworth Road pits together Luton Town and Queens Park Rangers. The Hatters did well to beat Reading in the FA Cup last 64, with Moncur scoring the only goal of the match, and they are now on a quest to regain their spot in the top half of the table. Luton defeated Bristol City 2-1 in their last home game in the Championship, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of QPR.
The Hoops, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their ten-game winless run in all competitions. QPR suffered a 2-0 loss to Fulham in the FA Cup at the weekend, meaning that they are low on confidence ahead of the trip to Bedfordshire. Luton have been in a much better form of late than QPR, and we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from the match.
Highlighted Player (Simon Sluga):
Simon Sluga is a Croatian goalkeeper who plays for Luton Town in the Championship. Born in Porec on March 17, 1993, the 191-cm-tall shot-stopper started his youth career at hometown club Jadran Porec before joining famous Croatian club Rijeka.
After spending two years on loan Juventus Primavera and Verona Primavera, Simon Sluga signed a professional contract with Rijeka in 2013. It has to be noted that he played for the likes of Pomorac, Lokomotiva Zagreb and Spezia on loan as well before moving to England. The Luton Town goalkeeper represented Croatia U17, U18, U19, U20 and U21 teams in international matches and he made his senior team debut on June 11, 2019 in a friendly against Tunisia.
The Vatreni were beaten by the African side 2-1 in Varazdin, with Simon Sluga playing a full 90 minutes for Zlatko Dalic’s team. His contract with Luton Town should expire on June 30, 2022.
Highlighted Team (QPR):
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.
