Our football match prediction:
Fulham and Queens Park Rangers face each other in the London derby on day 11 of the new Championship campaign. The Cottagers played out a 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest at the weekend and they are on a six-game winless run in all competitions ahead of the visit of QPR. Slavisa Jokanovic’s troops are eager to return to winning ways in the Championship and they are certainly capable of picking up all three points from Saturday’s football game against the fellow capital club. The Hoops are on a six-match winless run as well and we predict that both teams will go for a victory in the Craven Cottage showdown. 13 goals were scored in previous three meetings between the two teams in all competitions and, taking everything into account, both teams should find the net on Matchday 11. When the two teams met at Loftus Road earlier in 2016 Fulham recorded a 3-1 win over QPR.
Highligted Player (Jazz Richards):
Ashley Darel Jazz Richards is a Cardiff City footballer who can play as both full back and midfielder. Richards was born in Swansea, Wales on 12 April 1991 and he started his senior career in his home town. He made 39 appearances for Swansea City and after spending several seasons on loan at Crystal Palace, Huddersfield Town and Fulham, the Wales international signed a permanent deal with the Cottagers on 24 January, 2015. Richards played 22 league games for Fulham and on 19 July, 2016 he went on to join Cardiff City. He signed a three-year contract with the Bluebirds and was part of the swap which saw Scott Malone move to Craven Cottage. Jazz Richards has 15 caps for Wales U-21 team and he made his debut for the Wales national team on 27 May, 2012 in a 2-0 defeat to Mexico. It has to be noted that Richards is capable of operating as both left-back and right-back.
Highlighted Team (Queen Park Rangers):
Queens Park Rangers are well known as QPR. The capital club was founded in 1886 and Loftus Road Stadium is QPR’s ground. Loftus Road Stadium was opened in 1904 and the capacity of the venue 18,439. However, it has to be noted that no less than 35,353 spectators watched the game between QPR and Leeds on 27 April, 1974. The Hoops finished the 1975/1976 First Division campaign in second position in the standings, just behind champions Liverpool. This is considered the club’s biggest success, but Queens Park Rangers made it to the FA Cup final in 1982 as well. QPR were beaten by fellow capital club Tottenham Hotspur in the title game, but they did well to lift the League Cup trophy in 1967. Queens Park’s main rivals are Brentford, Chelsea and Fulham, but other clubs based in London are considered QPR’s rivals as well. The colour of QPR’s shirts is blue and white.
