Queens Park Rangers vs Birmingham City: prediction for the EFL Championship Week 39

A fight to stay above the relegation zone cut line!

In a battle to stay away from the relegation zone, Birmingham City will arrive at Loftus Road to play Queens Park Rangers. The EFL Championship Week 39 match will begin on March 29, at 4 PM CET.

Queens Park Rangers

After spending multiple seasons in the Premier League in the middle of the last decade, Queens Park Rangers have not been to the top flight since 2015. The hopes of getting there will, however, have to wait for at least a year, as right now it is all about keeping their spot in the Championship for the next campaign.

A small winning streak in February pushed QPR out of the relegation zone, but being winless in their last three, the Rangers are still only a point above the dreaded cut line. With only eight games left in the season, every match is important, but games against direct opponents have twice the value.

Birmingham City

Speaking of the direct opponents, Birmingham City is a polar opposite of their archrivals from Aston Villa. So while the latter seek the return to the Champions League and European competition trophies, the Blues are trying their best to keep themselves afloat in the Championship.

While every game during the last month has been close for Birmingham City, at this point the moral victories are simply not enough. The Blues lost five out of six, including three “0-1” losses in a row to Millwall, Middlesbrough and Watford, as they will now travel to London, while tied with Huddersfield Town for the dreadful 21-22 spot.

Prediction ⚽️

Queens Park Rangers have not scored against Birmingham City in their last three meetings, including the first round “0-0” draw at St. Andrews.

This time the Blues will arrive at Loftus Road with a goal of snatching points, but we will side with the hosts in that massively important clash. With the relegation to League One on the line, the 2.02 odds 🔥 are good enough to play the hosts’ victory in London.
