Last Time Out In The Championship

A battling 0-0 draw at Middlesbrough might not have been the most exciting game for Swans fans, but will certainly be looked back as a point gained. First half headers from Oli McBurnie and Martin Olsson forced Darren Randolph into saves, but Middlesbrough had the best of the chances during the game. George Saville’s long range strike clipped the bar, before Erwin Mulder was called into action from Britt Assombalonga’s near post volley. In the second half, a wayward Tom Carroll cross had Randolph scrambling before hitting the bar. Middlesbrough pressed for a late winner, but a Swans defence led by Mike Van der Hoorn defended well.

After just 1 goal conceded in 3 games, Bet UK’s online betting offers odds of 12/5* for Swansea to win to nil this weekend.

Last Time Out In The Championship

After a poor start to the season, QPR have improved in recent weeks. After 2 wins in a row, a 1-0 defeat at home to Norwich City will be hard for Rangers’ fans to swallow. QPR forward Nahki Wells had a half chance in the first half, but fired straight at Tim Krul from just outside the box. Norwich were much improved in the second half and dominated the game. Todd Cantwell wasted a good opportunity for the Canaries, firing over after a smart cut back into the box. The breakthrough came through Teemu Pukki, chesting in a deflected cross past Joe Lumley in goal. QPR pushed for a late equaliser, as Luke Freeman forced Krul into a save, but there were no clear cut chances to get excited about. Swans legend Angel Rangel will be making his first return to the Liberty Stadium on Saturday, after his move to QPR during the summer

QPR have struggled to score this season and Bet UK’s online betting is offering odds of 8/5* for QPR to score under 0.5 goals against Swansea.

Swansea City v QPR Head To Head

Swansea have won 3 of the last 4 meetings between the 2 sides, including 2 emphatic wins in the 2012/13 season. An opening day 5-0 win at Loftus Road was followed up by a 4-1 win at the Liberty Stadium 6 months later. Spanish forward Michu grabbed a brace in both of these matches, on his way to scoring 18 goals in his debut season. The last time the 2 met at the Liberty Stadium was in December 2014, as Swansea ran out 2-0 winners. Current Swans winger Wayne Routledge scored the second that day, and will be hoping for another goal scoring return this weekend.

If you fancy Swansea to repeat their win in 2014, Bet UK’s online betting has odds of 37/4* for Swansea to win 2-0.
