Our prediction for this Championship match:
QPR and Blackburn Rovers take on each other at Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Tuesday’s program. The Hoops are eyeing their third consecutive win at home, and you should know that over 2.5 goals have been netted in six of their last seven league fixtures. The capital club aim to bounce back from a 4-1 loss to Fulham, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in the midweek clash.
Lyndon Dykes is pushing for a start, while Sam McCullum will be assessed ahead of the match. The Riversiders, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their three-game winless run. Chile international Brereton returns to the starting XI, while both Jacob Davenport and Bradley Johnson are pushing for a start. Anyhow, given the attacking potential of the two sides, both teams to score betting option should be considered.
