Our prediction for this Championship match:
Loftus Road Stadium will host Tuesday’s football game between Queens Park Rangers and Bristol City, the two teams who were beaten by WBA and Middlesbrough respectively at the weekend. The capital club experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the 7-1 loss to the Baggies at the Hawthorns, but it is well known that they produce much better showings at home than on the travels. QPR are eager to give fans some cheer following the embarrassing defeat and we predict that they are going to fight tooth and nail against the Robins. Bristol City are eyeing their first win of the season as well and, taking everything into account, we believe that both teams will go for a victory in the midweek fixture. In their last meeting in London the two teams played out a 1-1 draw and there is every chance the history is going to repeat itself.

Highlighted Team (Bristol City):
Bristol City are one of the two famous clubs from the city of Bristol. Formed in 1894 the Robins mostly participated in English lower leagues and they have never played in the Premier League. Bristol City’s bitterest rivals are Bristol Rovers and it has to be noted that two teams first met in 1897. Bristol City have outplayed their local rivals on 43 occasions in the Bristol Derby.
Cardiff City are regarded as Bristol City’s bitter rivals as well. The Robins play their home games at Ashton Gate, the stadium that was opened in 1887. Bristol City were semi-finalists of the League Cup two times (1970/1971, 1988/1989), with the team making it to the FA Cup final in 1909.
The Robins faced Manchester United in the title game, but they failed to upset the English giants in the Crystal Palace clash. It is well known that Bristol City footballers wear red shirts and blue shorts.
