Reading

Reading will be looking for an improved result here after the 1-0 FA Cup defeat last time out to Luton Town.

In that game, Reading had 54% possession and 18 attempts at goal with 7 on target. For their opponents, Luton Town had 8 shots at goal with 4 of them on target. George Moncur (30') was the scorer for Luton Town.

It has been a rare occasion in recent games that Reading have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. It will be a concern for them that The Royals have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 games, letting in 8 goals in the process. Previous results aside, we must now wait to see whether that pattern shall continue on in this game or not.

Heading into this contest, Reading have not beaten Brentford in their previous 3 matches in the league.

Brentford come into this encounter following a 2-1 FA Cup win with the downing of Middlesbrough in their previous outing.

In that match, Brentford managed 57% possession and 9 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. For Brentford, the goalscorers were Halil Dervişoğlu (35') and Saman Ghoddos (64'). At the other end, Middlesbrough got 23 attempts on goal with 9 on target. Sam Folarin (48') scored for Middlesbrough.

The stats tell the story, and Brentford have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing opposing sides hit 7 goals overall. Defensively, The Bees have been far from perfect.

Coming into this contest, Brentford are undefeated in their previous 7 away league matches.

🤜🤛 Head to head

Inspecting their past head-to-head clashes going back to 20/01/2018 shows that Reading have won 1 of these games and Brentford 4, with the number of drawn results standing at 1.

16 goals were produced between them in this period, with 5 for The Royals and 11 for The Bees. That is an average goals per game value of 2.67.

The last league fixture between the two was Championship match day 20 on 19/12/2020 which finished with the scoreline of Brentford 3-1 Reading.

In that game, Brentford managed 44% possession and 11 shots at goal with 4 on target. The goalscorers were Mathias Jensen (11') and Bryan Mbeumo (23', 29').

At the other end, Reading had 9 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. Sone Aluko (64') scored.

The referee was Keith Stroud.

ℹ️ Team News: Reading

Reading manager Veljko Paunović doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this game thanks to a completely healthy squad to choose from.

🗞️ Team News: Brentford

Out of a mainly available group, there is only the sole fitness problem for the Brentford gaffer Thomas Frank to be concerned with. Shandon Baptiste (Knee Surgery) misses out for this game.

🔮 Prediction

We’re envisaging that Reading will have to play well to see themselves scoring against this Brentford outfit who we think might get the vital goal that wins it.

Our tip is therefore for a very competitive game with a 0-1 winning score for Brentford when the referee blows for full-time.

It should be a good one.
