Reading vs Bristol City Prediction

Based on their current league standings and recent form in the campaign, Bristol City does have an upper hand in the game with the Royals.

Reading has been winless in their recent three fixtures in the league. With such a dip in form, they are most unlikely to create opportunities in the match. Also, their home ground advantage is not that strong with six wins and six losses in their 13 home matches so far.

On the other hand, Bristol City is on a two-game winning streak in the league owing to just two losses in their last five fixtures in the campaign. Apart from that, the Robins have lost only four of their 14 away fixtures until now in the Championship schedule.

Along with that, their away handicap will be balanced by their overall league performance. Bristol City has a seven points difference with the host. As such, Bristol City will probably have more opportunities to take something out of the match.

Hence, it is safer to go with a double chance in the clash. Also, expect both teams to likely slot in at least a goal each in the ninety minutes.
