📊 Form Guide

Reading LLLWWL

Reading will be looking to improve on their last outing here following the 0-1 EFL Cup loss in their previous game against Luton Town.

In that match, Reading managed 59% possession and 6 attempts at goal with 2 on target. For their opponents, Luton Town got 14 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. Jordan Clark (24') was the scorer for Luton Town.

It has been all too rare in recent games that Reading have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that The Royals have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 12 goals in the process.

Leading up to this clash, Reading:

  • have not been beaten in the league by Barnsley in their last 6 games.
  • are without a win at home for the past 5 league matches. Fans are getting restless.

Barnsley LWWWLW

Barnsley will come into the clash following on from a 0-2 EFL Cup win as they beat Middlesbrough in their last outing.

In that game, Barnsley had 57% possession and 9 shots on goal with 4 of them on target. For Barnsley, goals were scored by Patrick Schmidt (22') and Jordan Williams (34'). Middlesbrough had 13 attempts at goal with 4 of them on target.

A run of very capable showings from the Barnsley defensive unit has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded standing at 3 from their last 6 outings combined. In that period, their own forwards have managed to score 6. With no two games being the same, time will tell if that trend shall continue on here in this match.

Coming into this clash, Barnsley haven't beaten Reading in away games against them for the last 3 matches in the league.

🤜🤛 Head to head

Looking over their past head to head meetings stretching back to 17/09/2016 shows us that Reading have won 3 of these & Barnsley 0, with the tally of draws being 3.

A sum of 12 goals were yielded between them during those clashes, with 9 of them from The Royals and 3 netted by The Tykes. That’s an average goals per game figure of 2.

The previous league meeting featuring these sides was Championship match day 36 on 29/02/2020 which ended up with the score at Reading 2-0 Barnsley.

On that day, Reading had 38% possession and 7 shots at goal with 4 on target. The scorers were Yakou Meïté (17') and George Puşcaş (60').

For their opponents, Barnsley had 23 attempts at goal with 6 of them on target.

The referee was Jeremy Simpson.

ℹ️ Team News: Reading

Reading boss Veljko Paunović does not have any fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this match owing to a fully healthy squad to pick from. Yakou Méïté will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.

We think that The Royals look set to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation in the match featuring Rafael, Omar Richards, Tom McIntyre, Michael Morrison, Andy Yiadom, Andy Rinomhota, Josh Laurent, Ovie Ejaria, John Swift, Michael Olise and Lucas Joao.

🗞️ Team News: Barnsley

With a fully injury-free squad to choose from, Barnsley boss Gerhard Struber has no fitness worries whatsoever before this clash.

We are inclined to think that The Tykes seem likely to elect for a 3-5-2 system, choosing Jack Walton, Michael Sollbauer, Mads Juel Andersen, Jordan Williams, Kilian Ludewig, Callum Styles, Dominik Frieser, Alex Mowatt, Marcel Ritzmaier, Cauley Woodrow and Conor Chaplin.

🧠 Prediction

We’re thinking that Barnsley could find themselves up against it to register a score against this Reading side who we reckon should just have the edge.

Our tip is therefore for a narrow 1-0 victory for Reading at full-time.
