Our football match prediction:
Out-of-form Queens Park Rangers will be looking to put an end to their five-game winless run in the Championship when they host Leeds United at their Loftus Road Stadium. The Hoops have been playing above expectations in the 2017/2018 season and, as things stand now, they are unlikely to book their place in the play-offs. The team’s main goal is to secure yet another Championship survival and a win over Leeds United on Matchday 12 should see them move away from the danger zone. The Whites, on the other hand, played out a 1-1 draw with Aston Villa in their last league fixture, but they are definitely capable of beating QPR in London as Ian Holloway’s men are low on confidence ahead of Saturday’s football match. Leeds United are eyeing a place in top six and we predict the visitors will emerge triumphant in the Loftus Stadium showdown.
Highligted Player (Nedum Onuoha):
Nedum Onuoha was born in Warri, Nigeria on 12 November, 1986, but he was brought up in Manchester. He attended Xaverian College Manchester and he was a very good student. He was an outstanding junior sprinter as well and it has to be noted that he won the silver medal at the English School’s Athletics Association Junior 100 metres contest. Speaking of his football career, he began playing at Manchester City at age 18, scoring three goals in 95 league appearances for the Citizens. He spent the 2010/2011 season on loan at Sunderland and in 2012 he signed a four-and-a-half-year deal with Queens Park Rangers. Despite the fact that he was born in Nigeria, Onuoha was eligible to play for England and you should know that he has 20 caps for England U21 team. However, he was never given a senior England debut despite being really close on several occasions. Onuoha won the Championship play-offs with Queens Park Rangers in the 2013/2014 season.
Highlighted Team (Leeds United):
Leeds United are one of the clubs that won the FA Cup. The Whites outplayed Arsenal in the final of the prestigious competition back in 1972, but they clinched the League Cup trophy as well. Leeds United faced the Gunners in the 1967/1968 League Cup final and it has to be noted that Terry Cooper scored the winner for the Whites. Leeds play their home games at Elland Road and the capacity of the stadium is 37,914. The club was founded in 1919 and they have won three First Division (Premier League) trophies ever since (1968/1969, 1973/1974, 1991/1992). Leeds United made it to the Champions League final in 1975, but they were beaten by Bayern Munich in the title clash. The Whites were impressive under David O’Leary. The likes of Jonathan Woodgate, Lee Bowyer, Harry Kewell, Mark Viduka and Ian Harte were part of the Elland Road outfit back then and they did well to reach the semis of the Champions League in 2001.
