The Championship clash at Loftus Road this coming Tuesday sees QPR hosting opponents Swansea.

QPR approach the next Championship round as number 20 in the table, having claimed six points this season so far. With six games behind them, Swansea amassed two points, placing them as number 22 before their next fixture.

With both QPR and Swansea coming off disappointing defeats in their previous outing, we could be in for a cautious battle. Both will be eager to get back to winning ways sooner rather than later.

QPR scored ten goals, conceded 15 and fought their way to two clean sheets in their previous ten matches.

Swansea head into this match on 1.7 goals per game in their last ten matches. They scored an acceptable total of 17, while also conceding 16 goals. This amounts to 1.6 on average per game, where they kept their opponents from scoring one times.

The most recent outing between QPR and Swansea failed to produce a winner, with the score reading 1-1 after the final whistle. The best betting odds on a draw at full-time with the bookies are at 9/4.

QPR vs Swansea Prediction

QPR Form

QPR are currently performing inconsistently, as they lost against Southampton by a 2-1 score, before winning 0-2 against Middlesbrough. They lost again in their most recent match, this time 1-3 against Sunderland. In their last six Championship home matches, QPR didn't claim a single win. In stead, they've drawn one and lost five, while scoring two and conceding 12 goals.

QPR’s priority for this season will be to stay clear of the relegation zone, while challenging for a spot in the upper half of the Championship.

Swansea Form

Swansea lost their previous three matches by 2-3 against Bournemouth, 1-2 against Bristol City and 2-0 against Cardiff. In their last six away matches in the Championship, Swansea won twice, while also recording one draw. They endured three defeats in this run, with a scoreline from these matches saying eight goals conceded and nine scored.

A top half finish is the dream target for QPR, although keeping their Championship status for another season has to be the priority.

Swansea and QPR are almost always cautious, when going toe-to-toe with each other, which makes under 2.5 goals the value bet on Tuesday.

QPR won three points from their last one encounters with teams from the bottom six, like their upcoming opponent. They won one, scored two and let in zero goals. QPR are yet to play a draw this season, in stead recording two wins and four defeats in the Championship. Swansea are yet to win this season, having played six games, in stead showing off two draws and four defeats.
