Nottingham Forest vs Reading Prediction

Even though their form seems confusing in their overall fixtures, the host has done better at their home matches. With just one loss and a six-game unbeaten run at home matches, the host looks confident in welcoming the Royals to their turf. Since the bout is a home game for the Forest, they will have the advantage and the stats prove that.

In addition to that, the traveling side is winless in the last five away fixtures in their schedule. They have also accumulated two draws and a loss in the last three away ties in the Championship campaign. Hence, they stand a lesser chance against Sabri Lamouchi’s tactics at home.

Besides that, the host has encountered only two losses in the 12 league appearances. Whilst, on the other side, Mark Bowen and his men have scarcely won 3 and lost 7 Championship games in 13 league clashes. Moreover, in their h2h clashes, the host is unbeaten at home while hosting Reading for the past five encounters in six years. As such, the chances of the traveling team spoiling the host’s celebrations are very narrow in the game.

Since scoring goals is not a problem for the host as they netted 16 goals in 12 championship ties so far, we can expect the celebrations to start earlier in the ninety minutes.
