Norwich City vs Reading Championship Prediction by LeagueLane

Norwich City vs Reading
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 1 May 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Carrow Road (Norwich).

Carrow Road will host Premier League games again next season as Norwich City has qualified for the PL this season. The host will still try to win the Championship title this season and a win in the next game can seal that deal for the Canaries. They made a comeback in the last game which saw them win 1-3 on the road against QPR in the league.

Reading was so close to the promotion zone but their recent dip in form cost their playoff hopes this season in the Championship. The away team had only two wins from their last ten matches in the campaign. They have drawn their last three fixtures, including the 2-2 draw at home with Swansea in the previous encounter.

Norwich City vs Reading Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Only one of their last five matches has ended in a draw.
  • Both teams have scored in their last ten fixtures since 2013.
  • The Canaries have been unbeaten for the past six games.
  • The host has recorded seven of the last ten overall wins.
  • Their previous encounter gave a 1-2 away win for the Canaries.
  • The host has lost only one of their past six clashes at home.

Norwich City vs Reading Prediction

There is no doubt that the match is sizing to be a home win in full-time. Norwich will aim to return to the Premier League with glory as they eye the Championship title this season. The Canaries enjoy the ground advantage in the middle and have lost only one of their last six h2h meetings with the Royals at this venue.

Another probable tip for the game is in the goals area. The tip for over 2.5 goals and BTTS will probably come in handy to yield decent returns. Taking into account the last ten h2h clashes between these two sides, all matches have seen BTTS with an average of 3.9 goals in that period.

Besides, the tip for over 8 corners in full-time will also be a suitable option as the fixture is likely an action-packed entertainer at Carrow road as usual.
