Reading vs Norwich City 2018-19 English League Championship by LeagueLane

Reading vs Norwich City
England – The Championship
Date: Wednesday 19th September 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Madejski Stadium (Reading).

Reading’s 3-2 win at Preston at the weekend was a real surprise as it was their first win of the season after a very slow start to their Championship campaign. They have already lost 4 times but will hope to build on this latest victory as they welcome Norwich.

It’s no surprise to learn that Reading have the worst home record in the league with 3 games and 3 defeats and they have scored 2 times and conceded 5 goals.

Norwich have not had the best of starts either and are in 16th place. They have lost 3 games from the 7 played and the problem for them has been consistency. They are now on a 2 game unbeaten run and will be looking to extend that in mid-week. However they are yet to win an away game this season.

Reading vs Norwich City: Head to Head

  • Last season Norwich won this fixture 2-1.
  • Home or away Norwich have won the last 3 meetings.
  • Since 2005 Norwich have only won 1 game at Reading’s ground.
  • The last 7 meetings have a 100% success rate for both teams to score.

Reading vs Norwich City: Prediction

The betting is very wide open with this game but Norwich have been installed as the favourites to win.

We can’t ignore history on this one and our main bet will be to see both teams to score.

We will also back the draw at half time and back most goals to occur in the 2nd half of the game when both teams will become tired and we should see more spaces develop on the field.

Punters can also expect a close guarded first 45 minutes.

Reading vs Norwich City: Bet Tips

  • Both teams to score at 1.80 (4/5)
  • Half Time: A draw at 2.00 (1/1)
  • Highest scoring half: 2nd half at 2.10 (11/10).
