Birmingham vs QPR: Top free betting tips
Recording successive away defeats in the EFL Championship, Birmingham City line up against Queens Park Rangers for the next league engagement. The fixture is scheduled to be played at St Andrew’s on Friday, 22 September. The Super Hoops enter this game after dropping two points against Swansea City at home.
Match result prediction: Birmingham to win
Birmingham City have found two victories in the last five league outings, along with two defeats and a draw. However, the Blues have gone undefeated in all three games at St Andrew’s this season, featuring two victories. On the other hand, Queens Park Rangers have made the turns of defeats and victories in four road fixtures this season. Birmingham has also dominated the Hoops in the H2Hs by winning three of the recent five meetings. Given the above records, we predict Birmingham to have the upper hand in this game.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
Despite winning only one of the last four matches, Queens Park Rangers have succeeded in scoring in all of those matches. But the Super Hoops have also allowed goals to be scored in three games as well in the same duration. On the other hand, Birmingham has rattled the net in four of the last five league outings, keeping just one clean sheet. Moreover, two of the recent three H2Hs of these two sides have finished with BTTS outcomes. In light of the current scenario, we expect goals from both ends of the field in this game.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Birmingham
Queens Park Rangers have found the back of the net only once in three of the recent four games. Meanwhile, Birmingham City have also scored multiple goals in just two of the previous five league outings. But the Blues will be confident to create many scoring opportunities, knowing the poor defensive form of QPR. The Super Hoops have conceded seven goals in four road fixtures this season, leaking multiple goals in two matches. Birmingham also scored two goals in two of the previous three H2Hs against Queens Park at St Andrew’s. Therefore, we predict a 2-1 lead for Birmingham at the end of this encounter.

Birmingham City preview
Despite getting the lead in the 46th minute against Preston North End through Jay Stansfield, Birmingham left the pitch empty-handed. The Blues’ Bielik gifted an own goal to the opposition in the 56th minute and Milutin Osmajic gave Preston a 2-1 lead in the 67th minute. The team’s training regimen is slightly disrupted by an injury-related absence of Alfie Chang.
