          Leicester vs. QPR Prediction, Tips & Stats

          As Leicester City and Queens Park Rangers prepare to clash at the summit of the EFL Championship on Saturday, the stage is set for a showdown that encapsulates the stark contrast in fortunes between the two sides this season. Scheduled to take place at the King Power Stadium, this fixture promises to offer a captivating narrative of dominance versus resilience in the second tier of English football.

          Currently perched atop the Championship table with 78 points, Leicester City have asserted themselves as the reigning force in the league this season. Under the stewardship of rookie manager Enzo Maresca, the Foxes have enjoyed a campaign characterised by unwavering dominance and a relentless pursuit of promotion back to the Premier League.

          Since claiming the top spot on matchday eight, Leicester City have maintained a stranglehold on the league table, showcasing their prowess and consistency week in, week out. Despite recent setbacks in the form of consecutive losses to Middlesbrough and Leeds United, the Foxes remain poised for a swift return to the top flight, with a six-point cushion over third-placed Ipswich Town.

          In a midweek FA Cup clash against Premier League side Bournemouth, Leicester City exhibited their resilience and determination, securing a hard-fought 1-0 victory in extra time. The heroics of 19-year-old Ghanaian winger Abdul Fatawu, whose stunning long-range strike sealed the win, epitomised the Foxes' unwavering spirit and talent.

          Key performers such as midfielder Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, who has notched 10 goals and provided 12 assists in the league, have been instrumental in Leicester's ascent to the summit of the Championship. With the likes of Fatawu and Dewsbury-Hall leading the charge, Leicester City are poised to continue their march towards promotion.

          In stark contrast to Leicester's dominance, Queens Park Rangers find themselves entrenched in the midst of a relegation battle, currently occupying 21st place in the Championship. Despite their struggles, the Hoops have displayed resilience and determination in their quest to retain their status as a Championship club.

          QPR's recent form offers a glimmer of hope amidst their relegation woes, with three wins, one draw, and one loss in their last five matches. A hard-fought 2-1 victory over Rotherham United showcased the team's fighting spirit, as goals from Paul Smyth and Chris Willock orchestrated a second-half comeback to secure a crucial win.

          Under the guidance of manager Martí Cifuentes, QPR have shown signs of improvement, particularly away from home, where they have recorded two wins, one draw, and one loss in their last four fixtures. Despite their daunting position in the league, the Hoops remain resolute in their pursuit of survival.

          When Leicester City and Queens Park Rangers clashed earlier in the season, the Foxes emerged victorious with a hard-fought 2-1 win. Despite being reduced to ten men, QPR made Leicester work for the victory and were only eventually downed by a late Harry Winks goal, so there's plenty of cause for optimism within the QPR ranks here.

          For our Leicester vs. QPR prediction, we're going for a 3-1 win for the home side.
