Reading vs Luton Town
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 26 December 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Madejski Stadium (Reading).
Three losses within their recent five clashes in the campaign have pulled down Reading to the mid-table position from being among the top on the table. The host is on a two-game losing streak, following a 3-1 loss on the road against Brentford last time out in the league.
Luton has been dropping points in four of their recent five encounters in the campaign. With just one win in the same period, the Hatters don’t pose a huge threat. They will visit on the back of a goalless draw at home with Bournemouth in their last league clash.
Reading vs Luton Town Head-to-head (h2h)

Reading vs Luton Town Prediction
Reading is in a tough spot in the league as of now with two consecutive losses. The Royals are capable of making a comeback in the championship with their squad strength. Besides, both their recent two defeats came across teams above them on the table and stronger sides in the mix.
The Hatters are six points behind the host on the table as it stands this term. They have a mixed form in the campaign and have been winless in their last five outings. So, we cannot expect Luton to surprise the host out of the blue in the upcoming clash.
The draw no bet over Reading will probably be the best bet for the punters considering the host’s ground advantage in the middle.
Furthermore, the Royals have averaged 1.5 goals in the campaign so far, while Luton is struggling with just 17 goals in the 20 clashes until now. Hence, the tip for over 1.5 goals will probably be a suitable option from the goals area in the encounter.
