Leeds United will face off against a familiar foe in the third round of the FA Cup, as they will take on West London team Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road.

Leeds will face off against QPR this weekend in the Championship, meaning that Leeds will face off against them twice in less than a month.

Per the club’s official website:

Leeds United have been drawn away at Queens Park Rangers in the third round of the Emirates FA Cup.

The tie will take place at Loftus Road over the weekend January 4th-7th 2019.

Leeds did the double over QPR last season after failing to beat them at all the season before. Leeds won away at Loftus Road 1-3 last December, featuring a hat trick from Kemar Roofe, and the 2-0 victory over QPR in May was the final match of the season and the last competitive fixture that Paul Heckingbottom managed at Leeds.

The previous season, Leeds lost away at QPR 3-0 in August of 2016 and drew 0-0 in March of 2017.

Leeds last faced QPR in the FA Cup all the way back in 1987, when they beat QPR 2-1 at Elland Road. The only other time that Leeds have faced QPR in the FA Cup was back in 1932 when Leeds lost 3-1. Here’s hoping that this trip to London is more fruitful than the last time Leeds played QPR away in the FA Cup.
