Besides that, Millwall has ended their unbeaten run with a goalless draw on the road against Stoke City in their previous match.

Millwall vs Reading Prediction

With Millwall leading in the league table, the host will be expected to perform better in the match. Along with that, they also possess the home ground advantage in the clash.

However, Millwall has only two wins in their past five league clashes. Meanwhile, Reading has won four of their recent five Championship fixtures in their schedule.

Hence, the current form suggests that both teams have an equal chance in the game. So, betting on who can win the game will be tough in the clash. Even so, we have better options to look into in the upcoming clash.

Millwall has managed to score in all their previous ten overall matches in major competitions. On the other hand, the Royals have scored in all but four of their prior ten clashes. So, we can expect both teams to score in the match.

Also, since the teams are in good form in the league lately, there is a probability that the total will be over 1.5 goals in the clash.
