Our football match prediction:
Norwich City welcome Queens Park Rangers at their Carrow Road on day 3 of the 2017/2018 Championship campaign. The Canaries produced a fine display in a 1-1 draw with Fulham on the opening day of the season, but they experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-1 loss to Sunderland at the weekend and, no doubt, Daniel Farke’s men need to improve their game if they are to secure promotion to the Premier League. Wednesday’s football match against QPR could be the turning point for Norwich City and we predict that they are going to fight tooth and nail against the capital club. The Hoops aim to extend their unbeaten run in the English second tier, but seeing that they were outclassed by the Canaries (4-0) in their last meeting at Carrow Road, there is every chance the visitors will return home empty-handed.
Highlighted Player (Russell Martin):
Russell Martin is a professional football player who was born on 4 January, 1986. Martin plays for Norwich City, but he began his senior career at Wycombe Wanderers. After making 116 appearances for the club, he joined Peterborough United in May, 2008 and in January, 2010 he signed a contract with Norwich City. Despite being born in England, Russell Martin plays for Scotland national team and it has to be noted that he made his international debut in May, 2011 against Wales. Martin won Championship play-offs with Norwich City in the 2014/2015 campaign, but the Canaries quickly dropped to the English second-tier. Despite the fact that Norwich City failed to avoid relegation to the Championship at the end of the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign, he decided not to leave the club. Russell is a right back, but he is capable of playing as a centre back as well. He was born in Brighton, England and he attended Varndean School.
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.
