Reading vs Brentford Championship Prediction by LeagueLane

Reading vs Brentford
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 10 February 2021
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Madejski Stadium (Reading).

Unbeaten in their last seven Championship games, Reading will come into the game with hopes. Their previous encounter was on the road, and they shared the spoils with Stoke City in a goalless draw. It has to be noted that they have kept a clean sheet in three of their last four fixtures in the campaign.

Brentford has been unbeaten in their last 20 clashes in the league. They are six points ahead of the home team on the table as it stands. Their three-game winning streak will be an added advantage ahead of the upcoming match. They will visit on the back of a 1-4 win on the road against Middlesbrough.

Reading vs Brentford Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Both teams have scored in three of their recent five fixtures.

  • Their previous encounter gave a 3-1 home win for the Bees.

Reading vs Brentford Prediction

Reading enjoys the ground advantage in the game, and three consecutive wins at home support it. Even so, winning against a team above them is easier said than done. The Royals lost two of their recent five home matches in the schedule. This opens the door for the visitor to take all three points.

Having lost only one of their last ten away fixtures across all major competitions, Brentford will come in too hot for the home team to handle. They are unbeaten in the last nine championship outings in their schedule this season. The guest is likely to create more chances in ninety minutes.

The away win in full-time will probably be an ideal choice for the clash considering their squad strength and league position. Besides, the away team is in a better position to lead the fixture. The host is likely to give a tough competition, which is why BTTS will probably be a suitable option for the punters.
