Fulham vs Reading Prediction
With their overall form in the league giving them an upper hand over Reading, Fulham is certainly on the driver’s seat in the match. Also, Fulham has a ten point lead over Reading in the league table.
Even though they have suffered some defeats lately, they have managed to stay strong at home. Evidently, the Cottagers took all three points from the table toppers in a recent home match. Thus, the host will be confident in welcoming the Royals for a fight for three points.
Besides that, Reading is on a good run in the campaign with three consecutive wins in their league schedule lately. Also, they are unbeaten in the last five away games and most of the wins have come against lower lying teams in the table. So, the Royals will not have high hopes in the encounter.
As such, we can count on Fulham to win the game. Apart from that, Reading is in a good form whatsoever. Hence, the host will have a hard time exploiting their defense. Henceforth, we can expect the total score to be under 3.5 goals in ninety minutes.
