As part of the 1/16 final of the English League Cup, the players of QPR and Everton will come face to face. Which of the rivals will get the victory in this confrontation? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this match.
QPR players have recently had a solid win-win streak. The team has not known a defeat since April, and mostly won victories. If the hosts approached the English League Cup match with Everton with such a form, then it would be possible to talk about some chances of the team in this match. However, in the last two meetings of the Championship, the team suffered two defeats. First, QPR lost to Bournemouth, after which they lost to their neighbor in the standings – Bristol City. Both matches ended with a score of 1: 2.
Everton players have made a good start to the new season of the Premier League. With Rafael Benitez, the team enters the European Cup zone. "Toffees" are located on the sixth line, having 10 points in their asset. Several teams higher in the number of "Manchester United and Manchester City" are ahead of Liverpool by a couple of points. Until the last round of the English championship, Everton did not know defeats in the domestic championship, winning victories over their rivals, but in the match of the fifth round there was a failure – 0:3. Aston Villa turned out to be stronger.
