Reading vs Leeds
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 12th March 2019
Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Venue: Madejski Stadium (Reading).
Both teams may be coming from either end of the league spectrum, but make no mistake that they both are on tremendous form. Reading needs to deal with the relegation threat that is looming below them. The team is just three points above the cut-off as of now and is probably just a solitary loss away from drowning to the exit zone.
At the same time, Leeds is battling with Norwich for the title race. They also have the exemplary form of Sheffield United to deal with as well, who are just two points off our team.
The resurgence of Reading is surely new-found. Contrary to the first half of the season, they have been much more consistent, and are focussed about securing their future in the second division of English Football.

Reading vs Leeds Prediction
Leeds is one of the major contenders for the title along with Norwich and is almost a sure-shot to get promoted to the Premier League next season. Their amazing consistency has been a major reason for the admirable situation the team is right now in, and they will be keen to keep in line with it for the short remainder of the season.
They did remain unbeaten in both their encounters with Reading last year and registered four of the last six h2h wins. Also, they won four of their last five general fixtures. With just a total of 30 more points to play for, trust them to raise their level, and do justice to their efforts till now to get promoted.
Leeds might take the win, but it surely will not be easy for them. Reading does have the home advantage and lost just once in their last eight ties. They are also on an unbeaten run at home in their last five attempts. On the basis of these, we believe, even if they lose, Reading will manage to find the back of the net at least once.
