Reading vs Luton
English League Cup
Date: Tuesday, 15 September 2020
Kick-Off at 18.00 UK
Venue: Madejski Stadium, Reading
It’s been a while since Reading FC had such a great start to new football season. They are looking for third consecutive victory this Tuesday at home venue against Luton, attempting to qualify for English League Cup third round. Both squads have won a lot of games lately, both friendlies and competitive ones, so it will be interesting to see whose streak is going to end.
In terms of the odds, bookmakers are giving a small edge to the hosts with 2.30 odds for the win, while chances for Luton to conquer Madejski Stadium are a bit slimmer at 3.10.
Reading vs Luton Head-to-head
There is no way Luton’s fans don’t remember the last meeting against Reading. That match was played in July and Reading demolished the opposition 5-0. Luton also lost four out of the last five matches against this opponent, and conceded 18 goals!
There were nine h2h encounters at Madejski between them so far. Reading are holding very high win rate – seven victories, one loss and one draw. Goal difference from these matches is 23-5.
Reading vs Luton Prediction
Reading not only won the first official match this season against Colchester United (3-1 FT in League Cup first round), but also caused an upset in the first round of Championship. They were the underdogs against Derby County, but still won the match thanks to goals scored by Lucas Joao and Oviemuno Ejaria in the first half. Team is obviously in a very good shape, so 2.20 odds can be labelled as good value to bet on.
Things changed for Luton Town during the summer it seems. Team which barely avoided relegation to League One has won two friendly matches in a row against Wealdstone and Northampton, followed by two more wins in League Cup versus Norwich 3-1 FT and Barnsley 1-0 in the Championship. We don’t think they will go down at Madejski without firing at least one bullet.
Reading vs Luton Bet Tips
- Home win @ 2.20
- Over 2.5 goals FT @ 1.75
