Reading vs Leeds United Prediction

Reading had their four-match unbeaten streak brought to a halt, post the international break, after Ollie Watkins sealed all three points for Brentford in their meeting last week. The hosts were far from their best in that latter clash. Disappointingly, they finished the ninety minutes with no more than one measly shot on target.

With just eighteen points in the bag, the home side are currently closer to falling into the relegation zone than they are in catching up with Leeds, who are sporting a sixteen point advantage at the top half of the ladder.

On the other hand, the visitors picked up their third consecutive win in their most recent matchup with Luton by a 2-1 scorecard. The guests are currently unbeaten in their last six games on the trot. And have garnered fourteen points from a possible eighteen in the process.

It is also worth mentioning that Leeds have been branded as the second-best away side in the cluster, having stumbled just twice on the road so far. To pile on the misery for the Reading faithful, the visitors have not featured at the losing end in any of their past two visits to this venue either.

Given the positive form that Leeds are on, it looks like a second successive defeat in certainly on the cards for Reading in this one. Furthermore, the hosts have had their scoring boots on in their last three games here and have amassed six goals to their tally from those clashes alone.

In addition, Leeds have also looked lively in the final third. They have netted fourteen goals from their outings so far.

Taking into account that their last two h2h meetings here have also witnessed more than 2.5 goals on the charts, count on both teams to rack up the goal charts this Tuesday.
