Leicester vs QPR Prediction Leicester vs QPR Preview and Prediction

Competition: Premier League – Leicester City vs. Queens Park Rangers

Venue: King Power Stadium – Sunday, May 24 – 15:00 BST (10:00 ET)

Match Odds: Leicester 4/7 – Draw 100/30 – QPR 4/1

Match Preview

Leicester City cap off an unbelievable escape by hosting already relegated Queens Park Rangers.

With an impressive run of form, Nigel Pearson‘s side have managed to avoid the drop with a game to spare. Leicester have remarkably only lost one of the last eight matches, winning six of them.

After losing 3-2 in the reverse fixture, Leicester will be out for revenge and also to finish the season in style as they could surpass the magic 40 point marker with a win.

Leicester’s survival has arguably been the best in the Premier League era. It is more special by the fact that they went on a 13-game winless run that lasted 96 days and have still managed to retain Premier League status.

Leicester City’s home record: P18 W6 D5 L7

QPR finish a dismal campaign with the visit to King Power Stadium, and they will be hopeful of a positive note as they prepare for life in the Championship.

Arguably the worst side in the top flight this season, QPR have just one win in six; a 2-1 victory over Newcastle. However, their away form has been abysmal.

They have picked up seven from a possible 54 this season away from home, and failing to pick up a single point against any of the top 12 sides in the league.

It is very much the start of a new chapter for QPR as Chris Ramsey was announced as the boss on a permanent basis. But that does not negate from the fact they have been poor and deserve to go down.

QPR’s away record: P18 W2 D1 L15

Team News

Leicester City are without Matty James and David Nugent through injury. Riyad Mahrez is expected to play behind a forward pairing of Jamie Vardy and Leonardo Ulloa.

QPR are missing Alejandro Faurlin, Eduardo Vargas and Rob Green for the trip. Bobby Zamora, Mauricio Isla, Mauro Zarate and Armand Traore all face late tests. Charlie Austin is expected to play up front on his.

Key Points

Leicester City’s last five: W/L/W/W/D

QPR’s last five: L/D/L/L/W

Key Stat: Leicester have kept a clean sheet in five of their last six matches in the Premier League

Key Player: Charlie Austin – The England striker has been a sensation in a very boring team. With 17 goals in 34 games, Austin fully deserves the England call-up he received on Thursday.

Score Prediction
