Our prediction for this Championship match:
Queens Park Rangers will be aiming to build on a 2-1 win over Wolverhampton when they face yet another contenders for automatic promotion Sheffield United at their Loftus Road Stadium. The Hoops proved their worth in the 2-1 win over second-placed Wolves and they now aim to claim yet another major scalp in the Championship. QPR have been producing fine performances at home ground this season and we predict that they are going to grab something from Tuesday’s football match against Sheffield United. The Blades, on the other hand, have been playing above expectations in the 2017/2018 season and they sit in top position in the standings ahead of the trip to London. The Bramall Lane outfit are determined to return to the Premier League, but seeing that QPR are tough to beat at home, there is every chance the two teams will share the spoils at Loftus Road on Matchday 15.

Highlighted Team (Sheffield United):
Sheffield United are a professional football club that compete in the Championship. The Blades finished the 2016/2017 League One campaign in top position in the standings, with the team collecting exactly 100 points in the process. Sheffield United last competed in the Premier League in the 2006/2007 season and they were more than unfortunate not to secure the top flight survival.
The Blades finished the season in 18th place in the process and it has to be noted that they were level on points with Wigan Athletic, who managed to avoid the relegation to the English second tier. Sheffield United welcome their rivals at Bramal Lane, the stadium which was opened on April 30, 1855. The current capacity of the venue is 32.702.
The club have numerous rivalries, but the most notable one is the rivalry with their city neighbors Sheffield Wednesday. The two teams face each other in the Steel City derby and it has to be noted that United share rivalry with the likes of Barnsley, Rotherham United, Doncaster Rovers and Leeds United as well.
