Our football match prediction:
Situation at Loftus Road is alarming ahead of the visit of Aston Villa. Queens Park Rangers are on a four-game losing run in the Championship and they are only three points clear of the relegation zone in the standings. The capital club were on the verge of holding high-flying Derby County to a goalless draw in midweek, but Tom Ince eventually helped the Rams pick up all three points from Wednesday’s football match. The Hoops are desperate to grab something from the Aston Villa game, but they would not be too disappointed with one point from the match. The Villans were not capable of matching Norwich City at Carrow Road, but they are certainly capable of beating the Hoops at Loftus Road. Nevertheless, considering that the team’s away performances leave a lot to be desired, we predict that the two teams will play out a draw on Matchday 22.
