Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
QPR and Watford take on each other at Loftus Road Stadium in the fifth round of the FA Cup. The Hoops suffered their fourth consecutive defeat in the Championship at the weekend, with the team losing to Birmingham City in front of home fans. The capital club aim to regain a much-needed confidence, but they face an uphill task in the FA Cup clash against Watford. The Hornets did well to beat Everton in their last league match and they will be looking to build on the triumph when they face QPR in the last 16 of the FA Cup. Watford set up a meeting with the Hoops in the fifth round of the prestigious competition by beating the likes of Woking and Newcastle United on the road, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the Premier League side this time out.
