In this match the home factor may be decisive, since Swansea City presents considerable differences in its results at home and as a visitor.
Queens Park Rangers:
The home team is currently in 13th position, with 4 points won, after 1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss. In the penultimate game, he tied at home against Huddersfield Town by (1‑1). In the last game, he lost out against Bristol City by (2‑0). This is a team little affected by the home factor, that is, it presents similar results at home and away, since in the last 30 matches it records 3 wins, 3 draws and 9 losses as a visitor, with 13 goals scored and 28 suffered; against 3 wins, 3 draws and 9 losses in his stadium, with 20 goals scored and 24 suffered. In their last 10 home games, Queens Park Rangers records 3 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses. His defense has not been very solid, since he suffered at least one goal in each of the last 10 games, but his attack has scored regularly, as he scored goals in 7 of the last 10 games.
Queens Park Rangers arrives on this demotivated day, after a 2-0 defeat against Bristol. Unlike the opponent of this round, Queens Park Rangers usually plays in a 5-3-2, in which the two most advanced players are Wells and Pugh. The local club, when it invests in the offensive process, generally does so through the left flank, taking advantage of the depth offered by the left side Manning. The local coach must have all the players at his disposal.
Swansea City :
After 2 wins and 1 draw, the visiting team is currently in 4th position, with 7 points won. In their last game, they won the Preston North End at home by (3-2), after in the previous game they had drawn away, in a game against Derby County, by (0-0). This is a stronger team with the support of his fans, since in the last 30 games he has 6 wins, 2 draws and 7 losses as a visitor, with 23 goals scored and 24 suffered; against 11 wins, 3 draws and 1 defeat in his stadium, with 38 goals scored and 20 suffered. In its last 10 away matches, Swansea City has 6 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses. The team allowed goals to the opponent in 8 of the last 10 games, so his defense needs to improve, but his attack has scored regularly, as he scored goals in 9 of the last 10 games.
Swansea comes to this motivated round, after a 3-2 home victory against Preston: Borja Bastón and Byers scored the winning goals. The visiting team generally acts in a tactical system in 4-3-3, favoring rapid transitions, mainly through the wings. In this tactical drawing, the three responsible for launching the panic in the defense of the rival are Peterson, Surridge and Routledge. One of the weaknesses of the visiting group is the end of the dangerous situations that it creates. The Swansea coach must have all the players fit for this match.
