QPR host Sunderland at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium in round four of the EFL Cup on Tuesday, with both sides having strong seasons so far.

QPR are currently seventh in the EFL Championship and have had an incredible start to the season. Although they have faltered recently, Mark Warburton will be confident of his side's ability to beat Sunderland on Tuesday.

Sunderland have also been in good form this season and are currently 4th in League 1. Lee Johnson's side will be looking to bounce back from their 1-0 loss against Charlton at the weekend with a win against QPR on Tuesday.

Typical bipolar Sunderland, so wouldn’t be surprised if we beat QPR on Tuesday.

With both sides in similar form this season, Tuesday's matchup is sure to be an exciting contest.

QPR vs Sunderland Head-to-Head

QPR have dominated the recent head-to-head record between the two sides, having won three of their last five meetings, with Sunderland winning only one.

QPR came away as 1-0 winners the last time the two sides met back in March 2018. Eberechi Eze's second-half strike was enough to secure all three points on the night.

QPR vs Sunderland Prediction

Both sides have been in similar form of late, however, the level of competition that the two sides have faced has been vastly different. The Hoops play in a division above Sunderland and the difference in quality should come to the fore on Tuesday, especially with Mark Warburton's side having home advantage.

We predict QPR will win the game comfortably.
