Queens Park Rangers v Leeds United Preview, Championship, Sunday 7th August 2016

The new Championship season will have been fully underway by the time QPR and Leeds United start this match on Sunday lunch time at Loftus Road Stadium and both clubs will be looking to get their new season off to the perfect start by claiming all 3pts from this one.

QPR could only manage a 12th place finish last season with an overall record of won 14, drawn 18, lost 14 and that would have gone down as a very disappointing season indeed. However, they start this new season with home advantage and both the fans and players will be confident about obtaining the right result come Sunday afternoon.

Leeds United finished a place lower than their hosts last season in 13th position and that will also have gone down as a poor season by their standards. Having an away match on the opening game of the season is going to be difficult for the players, but with newly appointed head coach Gary Monk having came in to over see proceedings at the club this season, they do have a manager that is highly respected in the game.

Queens Park Rangers Team News (Courtesy of SkySports.com):

Queens Park Rangers have almost a full squad to choose from for this game but will be without the services of Ariel Borysiuk, Jack Robinson and Jamie Mackie as all three players recover from respective injury related issues.

Joel Lynch, Jacke Bidwell and Jordan Cousins could be in line for debuts having joined the club during the summer.

Leeds United Team News (Courtesy of SkySports.com):

Leeds United have a fully fit squad for their new coach Gary Monk to choose from for this match although Liam Cooper could be rested having just returned from a calf injury.

Kyle Bartley and Sol Samba both joined the club during the summer and both could be handed their debut in this opening game.

Sunday’s lunch time kick off from Loftus Road Stadium will become the 39th meeting between the two clubs over the years, of which QPR have won 11 times, compared to Leeds United having won an impressive 16 times.

Our head to head statistics table below shows the last five matches played between the two clubs over recent season’s and as we can see it has been a very close, but QPR just edge it having won twice, compared to Leeds United having only managed just the one victory and the remaining two matches having finished all square.

Queens Park Rangers v Leeds United Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

If we take a look at both clubs results on the opening day of the new season last year, we see that Queens Park Rangers lost 2-0 away against Charlton Athletic and Leeds United drew 1-1 at home against Burnley, so no club has any real advantage on previous statistics taken from last season’s opening game of the season.

However, Leeds United have had the better results in their last five matches compared to Queens Park Rangers having won an impressive four times and losing just one and for me the visitors do look to be the value play here at their current odds on offer.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this game is going to be for Leeds United to win the game as with a full squad available and under the guidance of new head coach Gary Monk, they do look the more likely winners.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip will be for Leeds United striker Chris Wood to open up the goalscoring in this match as with having scored 13 times last season, he has looked quite good in front of goal and if he can be provided with quality service, I fully expect him to beat 13 goals this season.
