Reading vs Blackburn
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 2 March 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Madejski Stadium.
The Rovers are the only team in the whole competition along with Rotherham to stay winless in the last five match-days in the league. Note that four of these five games had ended in losses.
It’s fair to say that these two are the worst teams in the league at the moment, and both are conceding goals at a very high rate.
Meanwhile, the Royals are one of the best teams in the Championship. They are placed fifth in the table as of now, and are one of the contenders to qualify for the playoffs at the end of the season.
However, they are going through a slightly troubling run as of now, and have invited some unwanted pressure on to them. They need to make sure that they post some urgent points on the board, so that their spot in the top-most tier remains safe.
On top of that, Veljko Paunovic’s men also have a good h2h record against this opponent in recent years.
For the reasons, expect Reading to emerge victorious this Tuesday at the Madejski Stadium.

Reading vs Blackburn Prediction
Paunovic’s men recorded a 0-1 win on the road the last match-day, against Rotherham. In the meantime, Tony Mowbray’s men were held to a 1-1 draw the past game week, by Coventry.
Going on, the Royals had won nine of their last sixteen appearances at home, and they have failed to score just once at this venue in their past ten home games.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a six-match winless run, and five of these were losses. They were also winless in 14 of their past 18 fixtures. Note that they had also lost six of their previous eight road trips.
Considering these stats, expect the determined Reading to deliver a winning performance this Tuesday against the struggling Blackburn.
