QPR- Week 9

Match Date: 26 October 2014 (local time)

Venue: Loftus Road

 

Queen Park Rangers (QPR) faces a tough challenge, which was further worsened by their consecutive defeats and unresolved internal issues. Considering this aspect at hand, Aston Villa could readily take advantage of their opponent’s difficult situation and snatch the coveted three (3) points.

 

The contenders

Queen Park Rangers

Individual errors resulted to QPR’s loss to Liverpool. The newly-promoted squad could have easily clinched the three (3) points from the Premier League title contender, but own goals coming from Richard Dunne and Steven Caulker made victory more elusive than ever.

 

Adding more problems within Loftus Road is the rift between Adel Taarabt and the squad’s head honcho, Harry Redknapp. A word war has already erupted between the two and QPR’s management is keen on sanctioning the two for their demeanors.

 

QPR has only won once in their last 8 matches in the Premier League.

 

Aston Villa

Aston Villa slumped into the 12th spot of the league table after experiencing a clean sheet against an aggressive Everton. Goals from Phil Jagielka and the revived Romelu Lukaku stamped the Villan side. It was Aston Villa’s 4th consecutive loss after a seemingly strong start this season.

 

Possible head turners

Despite lingering in the rock bottom part of the table, QPR stands as the match’s online betting favorite. Under this case, the visitor must carefully watch out for Eduardo Vargas. Vargas delivered a brace for QPR, which could have generated a massive win if not for his teammates’ own goals.

 

Prediction

Queen Park Rangers 1-0 Aston Villa
