Reading
WDLLLL 📉

Reading will be looking for an improved result here after a 1-0 Championship loss in their previous game against Blackpool.

In that game, Reading managed 52% possession and 11 shots on goal with 3 of them on target. Blackpool had 10 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. Callum Connolly (9') scored for Blackpool.

It has been a rare occasion in recent times where Reading have kept a clean sheet. The facts show that Reading have been scored against in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, leaking 11 goals along the way. That pattern might not be carried forward here, of course.

Coming into this clash, Reading are without a win at home for the past 3 league games.

Cardiff City

Cardiff City head into the meeting following on from a 1-0 Championship win with the defeat of Norwich City in their most recent outing.

In that match, Cardiff City managed 45% possession and 3 attempts on goal with 2 of them on target. The only player to score for Cardiff City was Romaine Sawyers (49'). Norwich City got 6 attempts at goal with 1 of them on target.

A tendency of at least one side getting a clean sheet in games involving Cardiff City has been noticeable in recent matches. Looking at their last six meetings shows that it’s occurred 5 times. In these clashes, their opponents have hit a goal tally of 5 while Cardiff City have scored 3.

Coming into this meeting, Cardiff City are undefeated by Reading in games played away from home for the previous 2 matches in the league.

👥 Head to head

Looking over their past head to head clashes stretching back to 31/01/2020 tells us that Reading have won 2 of these games and Cardiff City 1, with the number of drawn matches being 3.

In all, 17 goals were shared by the two clubs in this period, with 9 for The Royals and 8 created by The Bluebirds. That is an average goals per game value of 2.83.

📰 Team News: Reading

The Reading boss Paul Ince doesn’t have any fitness worries to speak of ahead of this clash owing to a fully injury-free group to choose from.

It’s our opinion that The Royals may well employ a 3-4-3 formation in the match, beginning the first half with Joe Lumley, Andy Yiadom, Tom Holmes, Tom McIntyre, Junior Hoilett, Tyrese Fornah, Jeff Hendrick, N. Guinness-Walker, Tom Ince, Yakou Méïté and Ovie Ejaria.

🗞️ Team News: Cardiff City

Thanks to a fully injury-free squad to pick from, the Cardiff City manager Steve Morison does not have any fitness worries at all coming into this game. Perry Ng is ineligible for this match because of suspension.

We reckon that The Bluebirds seem likely to make use of a 4-2-3-1 lineup, settling for Ryan Allsop, Mahlon Romeo, Curtis Nelson, Cédric Kipré, Jamilu Collins, Ryan Wintle, Andy Rinomhota, Sheyi Ojo, Romaine Sawyers, Callum ODowda and Max Watters.

⚡ Prediction

Looking at these two, we feel that Cardiff City and Reading should both be able to find the back of the net here although it’s difficult to select a clear winner.

Let’s see how it plays out, but a draw is looking likely to us. We’re therefore tipping a tight encounter, finishing with a 1-1 scoreline when the full-time whistle blows.

Our expert partners are tipping under 3.5 goals for this match. Check out their VIP predictions here.
