Middlesbrough vs QPR by Peter
Middlesbrough FC has a very good season so far, after 16 rounds they are on 4th place with 30 points, in this season they won 9 matches, made 3 draws and lost 4 matches, they also managed to score 24 goals and received 12 goals.
Middlesbrough FC will be without central defender Fernando Amorebieta and centre forward Cristhian Stuani, both are injured.
On the other side, Queens Park Rangers has a modest season so far, after 16 rounds they are on 13th place with 20 points, in this season they won 5 matches, made 5 draws and lost 6 matches, they also managed to score 22 goals and received 24 goals.
From Queens Park Rangers defensive midfielder Massimo Luongo and left wing Junior Hoilett will probably be rested after they played for their national teams in the international break.
Queens Park Rangers manager Chris Ramsey was sacked after the loss at Derby County, Neil Warnock was named as interim and he still remains in charge until the club finds a new manager.
Middlesbrough FC played very good at home where they scored 15 goals and received only 2 goals, anyway, Queens Park Rangers are coming after 3 consecutive matches without scoring and I really can't see them having another match without scoring.
All week I've been thinking at Wolverhampton Wanderers - Queens Park Rangers from the 3rd round, I've backed Queens Park Rangers to win and Over 2.5 goals to be scored in that game and I was right, it ended 3-2 for Queens Park Rangers, I don't know why I have the same felling to this one, but I see a 2-1 for Queens Park Rangers, of course Middlesbrough FC played very good this season but they had some lacks, like the loss at home against Bristol City.
When I started to write the preview I wanted to pick Both Teams to Score & Over 2.5 Goals but I don't know why, I changed my mind, I'm backing QPR in this one, they have a lot of talented players and I believe that the break gave Neil Warnock a chance to fix things at the team, I also believe that if they will win, the club won't search for a new manager.
