Norwich City vs Reading
Date: Wednesday, 10 April 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Carrow Road (Norwich).
Norwich City kept marching towards the elite class of English football on Saturday when they stormed past out-of-form Queens Park Rangers 4-0 at Carrow Road.
Team’s top scorer Teemu Pukki completed a brace on the afternoon. Finnish forward now has 26 goals to his name and he leads competition’s goal-scoring charts with three goals more than second-placed Tammy Abraham of Aston Villa.
The Canaries are now seven points clear at the top of the standings after Leeds United’s weekend’s slip-up away at Birmingham City.
It is a massive cushion with just six games left to play. The team led by Daniel Farke will have another great opportunity to maintain the impressive eight-game winning streak on Wednesday night against relegation-threatened reading at Carrow Road.
Norwich City vs Reading: Head-to-head
On top of the form, the head to head record also speaks greatly in Norwich City’s favour here.
The Canaries are looking for their fifth successive win over Reading here.
Norwich City scored at least two goals in each of past four encounters with the Royals.
Interestingly, all of past eight head to head affairs between these two likes produced goals at both ends as well as at least three goals.
Norwich City vs Reading: Prediction
The visitors are in a very difficult situation down in the relegation scrap. They are just one point above the red zone and position currently held by Rotherham United. The Royals fell 3-1 away at Hull City on Saturday and they could well drop down to the danger area after the mid-week round with such a tough fixture against the section leaders ahead of them.
Reading have a dreadful away record of 2 wins, 9 draws and 9 defeats in 20 league matches on the road so far in the season. They are up against the red-hot table-toppers and we can only see the comprehensive home victory as the outcome.
Norwich City vs Reading: Bet Tips
