QPR vs Norwich – Betting Analysis
A glance at their prior head-to-head confrontations extending back to 02/04/2018 reveals us that QPR have won 1 of these and Norwich City 3, with the number of drawn matches standing at 2.
A combined total of 16 goals were scored between them throughout the course of those matches, with 6 for The R’s and 10 coming from The Canaries. That equals 2.67 goals per game on average.
The last league meeting between these sides was Championship match day 19 on 02/11/2022 when the final score was Norwich City 0-0 Queens Park Rangers.
In the game, Norwich City managed 66% possession and 12 shots at goal with 3 on target. Queens Park Rangers had 13 attempts at goal with 4 of them hitting target. Andy Davies served as the judge.
Gareth Ainsworth, the manager of QPR, will be appreciative that he has no fitness concerns whatsoever going into this match and has a completely healthy group available to choose from.
With Seny Dieng, Jimmy Dunne, Robert Dickie, Leon Balogun, Kenneth Paal, Albert Adomah, Sam Field, Andre Dozzell, Ilias Chair, Lyndon Dykes, and Chris Martin, The R’s could very well use the 4-4-2 formation this time.
There is only one fitness concern for Norwich City manager David Wagner to deal with out of a mostly full squad. Przemyslaw Placheta is unable to play in this match due to a bruised shin bone.
The Canaries are likely to send out Angus Gunn, Max Aarons, Andrew Omobamidele, Jakob Sörensen, Sam McCallum, Liam Gibbs, Gabriel Sara, Marquinhos, Josh Sargent, Onel Hernandez, and Teemu Pukki in a 4-2-3-1 formation, in our opinion.
We believe that Queens Park Rangers will have to exert a lot of pressure throughout the course of the game to score goals against this Norwich City lineup, who we believe should score at least once to take the lead.
