Reading vs Middlesbrough
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 14 July 2020
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Madejski Stadium.

Reading has done an excellent work this season after s narrow escape from relegation last time around. Currently they are 13th in the table with a three-game unbeaten run active.

The away fans were disappointed with their team’s poor performance against Bristol City at home. They were buzzing after the away win against Millwall in the previous game. This shows how inconsistent the Boro are this season.

Reading vs Middlesbrough: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The Boro has a six-match unbeaten run going on against this opposition.
  • Reading previously won this fixture back in October 2015.
  • The visitors have won in both their recent outings to this ground.
  • Both sides have two wins each in their five previous head to head games here.
  • Fewer than 2.5 goals were scored in all five of those matches at this ground.

Reading vs Middlesbrough: Prediction

The Boro has never lost a match with Reading in over two seasons in the Championship. But based on recent form of both these teams a win for either of them seems unlikely. It is a fact that the Royals are the better team in the table but in-home games they are struggling to pick up points.

From the last five home fixtures they have won once and lost twice. Right now, they are on a three-match winless run here. On the other hand, the visitors have won three recent matches on the road.

The head to head stats are also favours the teams from North Yorkshire. So I am backing the visitors to win this tie on Tuesday.

The previous history between them clearly shows a lack of goals in most clashes. The last six meetings at this ground saw a score with less than 2.5 goals and only one team scoring. In half of those games the final score was 2-0.

The Royals has scored more goals in away matches compared to home games. So, I think we will see only one team scoring in this one.

Reading vs Middlesbrough: Betting Tips

  • The away team to win @ 1.73 (8/11).
