Venue: Riverside Stadium (Middlesbrough).

Middlesbrough is getting ready for their fourth home match in the Championship. They were in the top ten of the league in the last season missing the chance for playoffs by one point. Reading was defeated in their previous encounter in the schedule and will be disappointed with that result.

The Boros lost two and Reading lost three matches in the league from their six fixtures. The Royals lost the first away match and hasn’t lost on the road after that loss. It will surely bring up some action late into the game with the mixed results and form of the teams.

Middlesbrough vs Reading Prediction

The host has scored at least two goals and conceded one in the previous three meetings at their home ground. Reading has scored eight goals from six matches and the Boros have scored seven in the fixture. Besides that, the total score has crossed three goals in six of the ten matches held here. Therefore, the venue can be deemed as a scoring ground for the teams.

Reading has won only three games and their previous win was five years ago. Surely they have narrow chance in defeating the host with an unbeaten run of seven games at all venues. Along with that, Boros also have three lossless game streak at the home ground against the foes. Also, the host does have the home ground advantage to utilize in the match.

Chances are that the match will be a high scoring bout with the host getting the better off of it.
