The Brewers have only made it into Round 3 once in their League Cup history, being eliminated by eventual finalists Bradford in 2012/13.
This will be the first ever competitive meeting between Burton and QPR.
Burton’s only previous League Cup meeting with a top-flight side ended in a penalty defeat (to Fulham last season).
Three of QPR’s last four eliminations in the League Cup have come to sides from a lower division than them.
The Brewers’ nine previous League Cup games have seen a total of 45 goals scored.
The R’s have kept three clean sheets in their last five League Cup games on the road.
