Cardiff City, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 0-2 Championship success against Nottingham Forest.

In that game, Cardiff City managed 43% possession and 9 shots at goal with 4 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Cardiff City was Kieffer Moore (3', 40'). For their opponents, Nottingham Forest had 12 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target.

A recurring trait of recent Cardiff City games is the high number of scores with a nil in them.

Taking their prior sextet of clashes leading up to this one, in as many as 5 of them a wager on BTTS would have lost. That being said, time will tell if that trend shall be replicated in this next game.

Going into this one, Cardiff City haven't beaten Reading in their last 7 league games.

Their previous form shows that Reading:

  • have not registered a win against Cardiff City in games played away from home for the previous 2 matches in the league.

🤜🤛 Head to head

Drawn results are a common outcome in games between these two clubs. In their head to head meetings dating back to 11/12/2017, the records show 5 of them. That’s a very high 83 per cent of games finishing all-square.

A total of 17 goals were shared by the two clubs throughout the course of those matches, with 7 of them from The Bluebirds and 10 netted by The Royals. The average goals per game has been 2.83.

ℹ️ Team News: Cardiff City

Cardiff City boss Neil Harris doesn’t have any fitness worries to speak of ahead of this clash thanks to a completely healthy group available to select from.

It looks as if The Bluebirds should use a 4-3-3 system for the game, handing starts to Alex Smithies, Souleymane Bamba, Curtis Nelson, Sean Morrison, Jordi Osei-Tutu, Marlon Pack, Joe Ralls, Leandro Bacuna, David Hoilett, Kieffer Moore and Sheyi Ojo.

🗞️ Team News: Reading

Owing to a fully healthy squad available for selection, Reading boss Veljko Paunović has zero fitness worries to speak of ahead of this game.

It’s our belief that The Royals will likely make use of a 4-2-3-1 lineup with a starting lineup of Rafael, Felipe Araruna, Michael Morrison, Liam Moore, Omar Richards, Andy Rinomhota, Josh Laurent, Michael Olise, John Swift, Ovie Ejaria and Lucas Joao.

🔮 Prediction

We feel that over the course of the game, Reading might well have a job on their hands to register a score against this Cardiff City team who should emerge victorious.

Our tip is therefore for a highly competitive game with a 1-0 advantage for Cardiff City when the referee blows for full-time.

Should be interesting.
