The visitors might be in huge troubles with the loss here given they enter the last round being just two points above the drop zone line. Furthermore, the Royals are nowhere near their best shape these days and they will come into the game off the back of consecutive super tough defeats to the bottom half likes of Sheffield Wednesday (0-3) and Ipswich Town (0-4) in last two fixtures.

Cardiff City vs Reading: Head-to-head

The hosts lead the head to head tie by two wins ahead of their 32nd meeting with Reading.

The Royals won two and drew one of last three encounters with Cardiff City.

Three of last four head to head matches saw both teams on target.

Cardiff City vs Reading: Prediction

Paul Clement’s side was very easy to break down recently and we can’t see them stopping the highly-motivated Cardiff City from bagging three or more goals here. The Bluebirds have a huge prize to aim for and we just can’t imagine them dropping the promotion to the Premier League against the likes of Reading who lost last two league outings with the total goal difference of 0-7.

The home win should thus be a banker bet at the 1.33 odds, while you can alternatively try with Neil Warnock’s side to bag three or more goals at 2.40. The value is also with Cardiff City to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at 1.90.
