Queens Park Rangers was one of the most feared teams in the English Premier League. In the 2012-2013 season, they had a star-studded squad and produced several glorifying moments of that year. But with time, they slowly lost their charisma and ultimately got relegated to the second division. They are trying their best to get back to the Premier League. They are in the seventh position at the Championship league table. In their last EFL cup match, they defeated Everton in the penalties. In the league, their last fixture was against Peterborough, which they won. Charlie Austin, Seny Dieng, Stefan Johansen, Andre Gray, etc., are a few of the players that can help them qualify to the next round.
Sunderland was in the top flight of England a few years back. But now they are playing in Football League One. It is hard to see how below they have fallen. Sunderland is capable of producing magic, and in their Premier League days, they readily showed it. They just need a push to help them get better. They are in the fourth position of the Football League One points table. Sunderland lost 1-0 to Charlton in their home ground. They reach Round of 16 of the EPL Cup by defeating Wigan Athletic in the third round. Aiden McGeady, Ross Stewart, Luke O’Nien, Dan Neil, etc., can help the team get back on track.
Both Queens Park Rangers, as well as Sunderland, are like fallen angels. They used to compete with the best but since then have stooped down. They will like to grab this opportunity to show everyone that they still are one of the better teams of England and are capable of competing at the highest levels. Winning this match will take the team to the Quarterfinals, which is a pretty huge deal. Going by pen and paper, I think Queens Park Rangers will win the match. Being a knock-out stage match, it is sure to have a decisive winner. Hopefully, you are as excited as I am. Do give your feedback on the article.
