Pray Form Goes Out the Window

It’s hard to approach a derby without someone wheeling out the cliche of form going out the window. It’s a phrase designed for TV to convince people they’re in for a surprise. However, it’s a hopeful phrase for both QPR and Charlton, two sides who are in all kinds of trouble.

These two sides have dreadful records behind them of late, with the Rs winning only twice in their last 10 matches in the league. Meanwhile, Charlton have gone a full 10 matches without a victory, a streak which has marked them out as contenders for the drop.

Addicks’ Struggles Continue

With Charlton on that kind of slump, fears are growing for the League One playoff winners. They’ve slumped to 17th, only six points clear of the drop. That is a terrible return for a side who were in the playoff mix not that long ago. That run has piled pressure onto the visitors going into this clash.

Charlton are coming here with four defeats in their last five, while they have major issues in defence. The visitors have shipped 1.6 goals per game on the road this term, conceding in 90% of their away trips. The Addicks have failed to keep a clean sheet through their 10-game winless run, while they could struggle here.

Sides Producing up Front

These two both have defensive concerns, with QPR fresh from a 5-3 hammering by bottom side Barnsley. Only Barnsley and Luton have conceded more goals than the Rs from the first 22 matches (42 goals conceded). However, the Rs sit fourth in the scoring charts.

QPR have scored in 82% of their home games and Charlton in 80% of their trips. The pair are each impressive going forward, while they are no strangers to goals. The hosts have seen both teams score in 73% of their games at this ground, while for Charlton it’s 70% of their away trips.

We think both teams to score is the best option, while we’re going for back to back 2-2 draws for Charlton. The Rs have seen exactly four goals in 55% of their home matches this season, while they’ve drawn three of five home clashes with sides below them. The Rs have scored at least twice in four of those five, so we’re backing a sixth 2-2 draw of the season for Charlton.
