QPR vs Sheff Utd – Real Madrid target can provide the difference

| 04.04.2011

Sheffield United enjoy a trip to Loftus Road but the Championship’s relegation favourites will struggle to return from London in high spirits.

Adel Taraabt was linked with a move to Real Madrid earlier in the week and the star of Queens Park Rangers’ season can prove the difference once again as the Hoops look to reassert their dominance in the division.

Match Odds

QPR have suffered just one loss at home all season and while many punters would believe the 4/9 for Neil Warnock’s side to win looks short, they offer all the value.

Sheffield United may have a decent record at Loftus Road but they have managed just one point from their last ten away games and the Blades will struggle to cope with the class of the Championship leaders.

At 13/2, the Championship betting certainly suggests they have a very slim chance of getting a result and QPR should enhance their title credentials with a comfortable win.

Total Goals

Taraabt has two goals in his last two games against Sheffield United and with 18 assists to his name in the division, he is certainly the player that will cause Sheffield United the most problems.

At 4/1 to get the first goal Taraabt offers plenty of value and with a 2-0 victory for QPR available at 11/2, a scorecast involving Taraabt and the 3-0 result is available at 18/1.

QPR won 3-0 at Bramall Lane earlier in the season but historically this match doesn’t provide too many goals and backing under 2.5 goals looks the pick at 8/11.

Punters should be weary of a 1-1 draw as four of the last ten matches between the two have finished that way, and the 7/1 for the 1-1 draw could be used as insurance by punters.

A £20 stake on QPR winning 2-0 would return £130. New customers can sign up here for up to £60 in free bets.
