📏 Form Guide

Reading LWLWDL

Reading will be hoping to bounce back here following the 2-1 Championship defeat in their last game at the hands of Derby County. In that game, Reading had 50% possession and 13 attempts at goal with 5 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Reading was Andy Rinomhota (62'). On the other side, Derby County had 13 shots on goal with 6 on target. Tom Lawrence (44') and Wayne Rooney (45') scored for Derby County.

It’s not been often in recent games where Reading have shown defensive steel. In fact, The Royals have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 9 goals on the way. We will just have to find out whether or not that trend will end up being continued on in this game.

Coming into this meeting, Reading are unbeaten in their last 2 league matches at home.

Brentford DLDWWW 📈

Brentford will go into this meeting after a 1-0 Championship win with the defeat of West Bromwich Albion in their last match. In that game, Brentford had 50% possession and 8 attempts at goal with 2 on target. The scorer for Brentford was Ollie Watkins (16'). West Bromwich Albion had 12 shots at goal with 2 on target.

In their previous six clashes, Brentford have helped themselves to a tally of 13 goals. The Bees have also not failed to score on each one of those occasions. During that period, their defenders have seen 6 goals go against them.

Coming into this contest, Brentford haven't been defeated in their previous 2 away league matches.

👥 Head to head

Looking at the statistics for their head to head meetings stretching back to 14/02/2017, both clubs have shared the honours with Reading winning 2 of those games, Brentford 2 and 2 being drawn after 90 minutes of play.

A total of 16 goals were shared by the two clubs in this period, with 8 from The Royals and 8 netted by The Bees. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 2.67.

The previous league encounter between these sides was Championship match day 17 on 23/11/2019 when it finished Brentford 1-0 Reading. In that game, Brentford had 57% possession and 11 shots on goal with 4 on target. Their only player on the scoresheet was Ollie Watkins (62'). Reading got 6 attempts on goal with 1 on target. The match was refereed by David Coote.

🗞️ Team News: Reading

Tom McIntyre (Ankle Injury) and Jordan Obita (Ankle Injury) won’t be able to feature for Reading boss Mark Bowen.

We are thinking that The Royals will probably use a 4-2-3-1 formation for this one with Rafael, Omar Richards, Michael Morrison, Liam Moore, Chris Gunter, Andy Rinomhota, John Swift, Ovie Ejaria, Michael Olise, Yakou Méïté and George Puscas.

ℹ️ Team News: Brentford

Brentford manager Thomas Frank has multiple availability issues to deal with. Marcus Forss (Hamstring Injury) and Bryan Mbeumo (Corona virus) won’t be making appearances.

We’re of the thinking that The Bees could decide to make use of a 4-3-3 system, settling for David Raya Martin, Henrik Dalsgaard, Ethan Pinnock, Pontus Jansson, Rico Henry, Emiliano Marcondes Hansen, Christian Nørgaard, Joshua Da Silva, Bryan Mbeumo, Ollie Watkins and Saïd Benrahma.

✨ Prediction

Reading have it in them to find the net against this Brentford team, although one goal probably won’t quite be as many as they’ll concede. We can see both teams to score in a 1-2 advantage for Brentford by the conclusion of the game. Should be a good one.
