Reading vs Brentford Prediction & Match Preview

Reading vs Brentford
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 13th April 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Madejski Stadium (Reading).

Reading leads by just two points over the relegation line, and obviously is a potential match-day away from being included in the exit zone. Five games remain in the competition, and the team needs to tread lightly if they are to see a minute of the next edition of this tournament. They are at home this weekend, and that’s something to look forward to for the fans.

It’d take a miracle now to eliminate Brentford from the Championship. They have 54 points on the board, constituting a gap of 15 points from the exit line. Their secure future has brought a sense of complacency amongst the players, which the hosts will try to take advantage of in abundance.

Reading vs Brentford Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Reading won or drew the game in three of the last four attempts.

  • The last five ties in a row at this stadium had the visitors finding the back of the net.

Reading vs Brentford Prediction

Reading is desperate for this win. They are just two points above the exit line and have five more games to wade through before the end of the season. This tie is in favor of them though.

Reading is at home and is taking on a relaxed Brentford, who is almost deemed safe for the next season. Moreover, Reading was unbeaten in six of their last seven home ties, while Brentford has been not that good on the road. The team was winless in 18 of their last 20 away ties.

Expect the under-pressure Reading to rise to the occasion.

Regarding goals, Reading has conceded three more home-goals than the worst team in the Championship, Ipswich. Also, keep in mind that Brentford scored five goals in their last two games combined. Finally, ten of the last twelve h2h matches and three of the last five had goals from both teams. Expect the BTTS option to be exercised this weekend.
