Our football match prediction:
Buoyed by a 2-1 win over Birmingham City, Queens Park Rangers take on Bristol City at their Loftus Road Stadium on Matchday 23. The Hoops aim to escape the danger zone in the Championship standings, but, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from Saturday’s football game. QPR have been totally unpredictable in the first half of the season and they certainly face an uphill task in the match against Bristol City. The Robins are on a four-game winning run in the English second tier and they are still in the race for automatic promotion to the Premier League. Lee Johnson’s men scored 2+ goals in each of their previous four league fixtures and they are definitely capable of beating the capital club, who are on a three-game winless run at their Loftus Road Stadium. Taking everything into account, we are tempted to put our money on Bristol City, who have been in a thrilling form of late.
