Reading vs Nottingham Forest Championship Prediction by LeagueLane

Reading vs Nottingham Forest
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 5 December 2020
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Madejski Stadium (Reading).

The 1-1 draw on the road with Sheffield Wednesday was not the result Reading was looking for in the fixture. But the draw keeps their three-game unbeaten streak intact in their league form.

They will return home with 27 points overall from 8 wins and 3 draws in their 15 appearances this term until now.

Nottingham Forest continues to disappoint in the championship as they are winless in four consecutive matches in their schedule.

The goalless draw at home with Watford in the last league clash will still be a consolation since it came after three consecutive defeats in the schedule.

Reading vs Nottingham Forest Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Three of their last five clashes have ended in a draw.
  • Both teams have scored in three of the recent five fixtures.
  • The host has recorded three of the last five overall wins.
  • Their previous encounter resulted in a 1-1 draw at Nottingham.
  • The host has been unbeaten at home for the last five clashes.

Reading vs Nottingham Forest Prediction

Reading will try to build on their recent unbeaten run in the championship. From 15 appearances, the host has scored 24 goals while taking in 19 goals in the process. Besides, their last four fixtures have seen both teams scoring in each.

In the meantime, Nottingham Forest has been stingy in scoring, netting in only 9 goals and conceding 17 in return from their 15 attempts in the championship this term. It has to be noted that the Forest has given away a clean sheet in all their recent four league clashes.

Based on these stats, the Royals have a good chance to slot in a couple of goals since the visitor is on a poor form on the road. The tip for over 1.5 goals will probably be a suitable pick from the goals area. Also, the double chance favoring Reading will probably be the best bet for the punters.
