Bristol City vs Reading Prediction & Match Preview

Bristol City vs Reading
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 16 February 2021
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Ashton Gate Stadium.

The Robins are one of the worst teams in the competition at the moment. They are on a long losing run, and have been conceding goals in alarming numbers. In fact, only three squads in the whole competition have let in more goals than the team.

Meanwhile, the Royals are placed fifth in the table, and as of now their objective should be to qualify for the playoffs. They do have a buffer of eight points over the playoffs cut-off as of now, and will hold on to dear life to maintain that gap.

Going on, Veljko Paunovic’s men have also been the better team in h2h clashes recently as well.

Likely, expect Reading to dominate proceedings this Tuesday at the Ashton Gate Stadium.

Bristol vs Reading: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The reverse fixture had ended in a 3-1 win for the Royals.
  • They had recorded nine of the former thirteen overall wins.
  • Since 2010, the hosts have won just twice at this venue, and just thrice here since 2000.
  • The latest clash had ended in a 1-0 win for the hosts.

Bristol vs Reading Prediction

Dean Holden’s men lost 6-0 on the road the last match-day, against Watford. In the meantime, Paunovic’s men lost 1-2 at home the past game week, against Millwall.

Going on, the Robins are on a five-match losing run, and had a combined scorecard of 0-9 from their last three games.

On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in seven of their preceding ten overall matches, and they have lost just four times on the road this whole season.

Note that one of these defeats had come in the FA Cup, while two others had come against teams currently placed in the top-six of the table.

In addition, the Royals also have a great h2h record against this rival over the years, and had even registered a 3-1 victory in the reverse match-up.

By the looks of things, expect a thorough and impressive performance from Reading this Tuesday.
