QPR vs Everton
England Carabao Cup,
Date: Tuesday, 21 September 2021
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.
Everton are one of the perennial favorites to secure a top-tier spot in the Premier League. Meanwhile, QPR are a team struggling to manage a mid-table position in the Championship. Right away the latter stands out as the favorites for the day.
They are currently placed sixth in the English top flight, and have lost just once so far this new campaign.
They are trailing just three points below toppers Chelsea, and only five other teams have scored more goals than them so far – and four of those are strong contenders for the title.
The PL and the FA Cup are actively targeted by the heavyweights in the English top flight and this significantly reduces the chances of a team like Everton lifting those.
For the Toffees, this leaves the EFL Cup as a possible opportunity to not end up trophy-less this season – and it goes without saying that they would be prioritizing a win this Tuesday.
In the meantime, QPR have won just thrice so far this season in the Championship, and only three other squads have let in more goals than them in the competition.
And most importantly, they are going through a rather inconsistent spell at the moment, and have a poor h2h record against this rival over the years as well.
As such, expect a win for Everton this Tuesday at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.
QPR vs Everton: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter had ended in a 1-2 win for the Toffees.
- They are on a four-fixture winning streak.
- They had scored a total of 11 goals from these four match-ups.
- It’s been ten years since they have lost against this opponent.
QPR vs Everton Prediction
QPR are on a two-fixture winless streak, and two of these were losses. Note that they had conceded two or more goals in all three games, and they have won just twice at home this whole season in all competitions.
On the other hand, their counterparts have lost just once in 2021-22, and they had scored two or more goals in five of their preceding six fixtures.
Moreover, they had slotted in two or more goals in three of their last four road trips, and since November, they had lost just four times in away matches. And three of these defeats had come against Chelsea, Manchester City, and Manchester United.
Taking into account these observations, as well as past h2h stats, expect a formidable win for Everton this Tuesday
