Derby County vs Reading Prediction & Match Preview

Derby County vs Reading
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 19th January 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Pride Park (Derby).

The Championship has scheduled another lopsided match, and bettors can make some easy money if they are willing to pay a little attention.

The Rams are the top end of the table, fighting for a spot in the Premier League next season, while their opponents are struggling to hold on to their place in the league. A demotion to League One will be a huge step in the wrong direction for this proud club.

The recent trend of games, place the hosts as the huge favorites as they come into this game unbeaten in their last five attempts at home.

The Royals have to their credit a streak of longer duration but in the opposite end of the spectrum. 10 winless games on the road, in a row.

Derby County vs Reading Prediction

Ever since Chelsea legend Frank Lampard took the reins of the Rams, things have been good for them. They approach this tie after avoiding defeat in their last five home-ties in a row.

In fact, the team has lost only twice at home this season, and on both occasions, the rivals were far superior to them. That is not the case for this fixture.

The team from Berkshire is winless in their last ten matches on the road. Also, stretching back to March of last year, the team has registered just one away win.

That is, one win from 24 trips taken. It’s safe to assume that the hosts will hop to a comfortable win with at least two goals scored.
