Our prediction for this match:
Watford will be looking to build on a splendid 2-1 win over Bayer Leverkusen when they take on Queens Park Rangers at Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium in yet another pre-season friendly. The Hornets quickly bounced back from a 2-1 loss to Champions League semifinalists Ajax and they are seen as favourites to win Saturday’s football match against the Hoops as well.
One of the men to watch in the Premier League team will be Andy Gray, who found the net in the 2-1 win over the Bundesliga side at the weekend. Queens Park Rangers did well to make amends for back-to-back defeats to the likes of Austria Wien and Boreham Wood, with the team beating Oxford United in their last warm-up game. Seeing that Watford coach Javi Gracia is likely to stick to his rotation policy against QPR, we are tempted to put our money on draw.
