Middlesbrough will come into the match following on from a 2-1 Championship win with the downing of Huddersfield Town in their most recent outing.

In that match, Middlesbrough managed 43% possession and 11 shots on goal with 5 on target. For Middlesbrough, the goals were scored by Duncan Watmore (31') and Ashley Fletcher (45'). For their opponents, Huddersfield Town had 16 shots at goal with 5 on target. Isaac Mbenza (9') was the scorer for Huddersfield Town.

The stats don’t lie, and Middlesbrough have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 11 goals in all. In defence, The Boro have seen their frailties exposed. It will be interesting to find out if that trend will end up being sustained in this game.

A look at their previous results shows us that Middlesbrough:

  • haven't been beaten by Reading when they've played them away from home in the last 3 matches in the league.
  • have not won away from home in their last 2 league games.

↔️ Head to head

An inspection of their past head to head meetings going back to 10/02/2018 tells us that these fixtures have been a source of anguish for Reading. They’ve not managed to come away with any victories whatsoever whereas Middlesbrough have been dominant against them, winning in 83 per cent of those matches played.

A sum of 11 goals were scored between the two sides throughout the course of those matches, with 3 of them from The Royals and 8 being from The Boro. That’s an average goals per game figure of 1.83.

The last league match between these sides was Championship match day 5 on 17/10/2020 when the final score was Middlesbrough 0-0 Reading.

That time, Middlesbrough managed 36% possession and 8 attempts on goal with 0 on target.

On the other side, Reading had 10 attempts on goal with 1 of them on target.

The referee was Darren Bond.

📰 Team News: Reading

Regarding absentees, there’s just one fitness concern for the Reading manager Veljko Paunović to be concerned about from an otherwise fully-primed group. George Pușcaș (Surgery) is sidelined.

📰 Team News: Middlesbrough

Thanks to a fully injury-free group available to choose from, Middlesbrough manager Neil Warnock does not have any fitness worries to report before this game. Paddy McNair is ineligible for this match because of suspension.

🔮 Prediction

We feel that Middlesbrough and Reading could well end up finding themselves level here, with both teams capable of netting.

It’s looking like it could well end up as a draw. That’s why we have predicted a tight encounter, finishing with a 1-1 draw at the end of the 90 minutes.
