Looking at their form, and Reading have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, conceding 7 goals in all. Defensively, The Royals can certainly do much better. That trend isn’t assured to be sustained into this match, of course.

Their previous form shows that Reading:

  • haven't won against Norwich City in games played away from home for the previous 3 league matches.
  • are without an away win for the past 5 league matches.

🤜🤛 Head to head

Looking at past results between these clubs going back to 08/04/2017 tells us that these encounters have been a source of anguish for Reading. They have not managed to come away with any wins at all whereas Norwich City have simply been better than them, getting wins in 83 per cent of those matches played.

Loads of goals were seen in those games, too - 26 in total which averages out at 4.33 goals per match.

The last league match featuring these sides was Championship match day 19 on 16/12/2020 and the score finished Reading 1-2 Norwich City.

That day, Reading had 45% possession and 8 attempts on goal with 2 on target. Their only player to score was Michael Olise (14').

For their opponents, Norwich City had 11 shots at goal with 6 of them on target. Emiliano Buendía (11') and Teemu Pukki (55') scored.

The referee was Geoff Eltringham.

📋 Team News: Norwich City

Adam Idah (Unknown Injury) and Aston Oxborough (Achilles tendon surgery) are not available for Norwich gaffer Daniel Farke. Dimitrios Giannoulis is ineligible for this match because of suspension.

📰 Team News: Reading

Out of a mainly full-strength group of players, there is just the one fitness issue for the Reading gaffer Veljko Paunović to be concerned about. John Swift (Hamstring Injury) won’t be playing here.

🔮 Prediction

When taking all factors into account, Norwich City certainly have the ability to score more than once when they face Reading, who could well find it tough getting on the scoresheet.

We reckon that it will be a 2-0 win for Norwich City after 90 minutes.
