The Championship clash at Loftus Road on Saturday sees home team QPR battling it out for the win against Middlesbrough.

Nobody likes to come through the opening round of a new season with a defeat, but that is exactly what QPR had to settle for in their first match.Middlesbrough were most likely hoping for more from their opening match of the season, but nevertheless set off with a point in the table.

QPR have their target aimed at getting one over Middlesbrough this coming Saturday, but the latter are highly motivated of showing their skills in front of the crowd at Loftus Road.

QPR have a hard time getting on the scoreboard these days, as they managed a poorly seven goals in their previous ten matches. That is an average of 0.7 goals per game, in which they conceded 15 goals, or 1.5 goals per game. Furthermore, they fought their way to two clean sheets in this run.

Middlesbrough are currently decent goalscorers, as they managed a bearable 12 goals in the past ten outings for an average of 1.2 goals a game. Their opponents scored a total of 11 goals, and while Middlesbrough claimed three clean sheets, they conceded an average of 1.1 goals per match.

QPR vs Middlesbrough Preview

In their last six Championship home matches, QPR have two wins, while they've drawn zero and lost four. They scored six and conceded 11 goals.

In a season where everything runs absolutely smoothly QPR might be able to surprise. However, a finish inside the top half of the Championship looks the most realistic scenario.

Middlesbrough won twice, while also recording three draws, and one defeat in their last six away matches in the Championship. The scoreline from these matches says five goals conceded and eight scored.

Middlesbrough go into a new season as candidates for the podium, but will count themselves lucky to achieve more than a third place.
