QPR vs Portsmouth predictions and betting tips for their FA Cup replay on Tuesday 5th February. Neither side are in great form going into this fixture but something has to give here and a home tie against Watford awaits the winner.
Championship side QPR go into this match off the back of three defeats in the league and the draw against Portsmouth in their last four matches, and Pompy will be quietly confident of knocking the West London side out of the competition here.
The sides played out a 1-1 draw on the South coast to get us to this replay, but chances were few and far between and Portsmouth will be a little aggrieved they didn’t get the win after taking the lead in the second half. Since that game, Pompy have lost to Luton and drawn against Doncaster, meaning they have dropped out of the automatic promotion places in League Two.
QPR are on an even worse run of form and have lost their last three Championship fixtures, conceding seven goals in the process. They’re in 14th place in the Championship table so are safe enough from the relegation places, but won’t get into the play-offs, so an FA Cup run is their last hope of an exciting climax to the season.
In our QPR vs Portsmouth predictions, we’re expecting a close match and extra time and even penalties could be needed to separate the two teams at Luftus Road.
The first football prediction we have selected is for the game to be another draw after 90 minutes. Despite the Championship side having home advantage here, they were poor in the first game at Fratton Park and has just two shots on goal. This could be another game of few chances so a low scoring draw is the prediction. The best odds for the draw are at Ladbrokes where you’ll collect THREE free £10 bets using the sign-up steps below:

Given that we are predicting the game to go into extra-time, the second of our betting tips for the match is going to be Portsmouth to win in extra-time. The visitors are generally a good side away from home and will be able to cope with the extended period if it is needed. It is unlikely QPR will have a big crowd behind them for this replay and the Portsmouth away end will be sold out. That extra edge could give Pompy a memorable victory so the second of our QPR vs Portsmouth predictions is for Pompy to win in extra-time. The odds for this are 16/1 with bet365.
