QPR v Portsmouth Preview

QPR had to fight their way back into this FA Cup tie against Portsmouth, Nahki Wells equalising for them with 15 minutes to go. QPR were the dominant side in the match but didn’t really create a lot of clear chances. They are the clear favourites now back at Loftus Road for this replay. QPR have posted a W3 D1 L1 record in their last five home fixtures. In the last round, they pulled off an upset in knocking out Championship title contenders Leeds. QPR have been scoring pretty well on home soil because, in five of their last seven at Loftus Road, QPR have scored at least two goals. The last time that QPR played host to Portsmouth was back in the 2011 Championship, with the R’s earning a 2-0 victory. QPR are actually undefeated in their last 13 home fixtures against Portsmouth.

 

Key-Facts – QPR v Portsmouth

  • Portsmouth have failed win any of their last 13 trips to Loftus Road
  • QPR have scored at least two goals in all but two of their last seven home fixtures
  • Pompey have won all three away games in this season’s FA Cup to nil

 

Pompey are still well on track for a promotion push in League One. They showed their credentials in holding out for that draw at home against QPR back towards the end of January. Portsmouth have only collected the one win in their last six games across all competitions. That victory was a 1-0 away win at Championship side Norwich in the last round of the FA Cup. They haven’t produced a great return away from home, having earned just the two victories in their last six out on their travels. As a positive, Portsmouth have only failed to score in one away fixture all season. This will be their fourth away game of this season’s FA Cup having won each of the other three (against Maidenhead, Rochdale and then Norwich) with a clean sheet.

QPR v Portsmouth Predictions

QPR to win: it has been a good away campaign for Portsmouth in the FA Cup this season, but they may just come up short in a tight duel back at Loftus Road against QPR. There’s just enough in the home side the back them outright to come through this replay at 17/20 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 2nd, 2019 at 9:12 p.m.).
