Bristol City vs QPR England – Championship Date: Thursday, 30 December 2021 Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET Venue: Ashton Gate Stadium.
QPR were on a good streak of games just two match-days before. However, then they had to take on some tough teams (including toppers Bournemouth), and this has resulted in them dropping valuable points.
It has also turned them desperate. They are trying to get back into the top-six of the table, and will be going for the three points this Thursday.
However, Bristol City will have a thing or two to say about that. They are at home, and they have managed to have a decent run of games there lately.
Moreover, they also have the better h2h record at this venue in recent years.
By the looks of things, we are in for a fierce encounter, and the expectation is that goals will come in plenty this Thursday.
