Reading vs QPR
Date: Tuesday, 2 October 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Madejski Stadium (Reading).
It will be another dismal campaign for both Reading and Queens Park Rangers judging by the lame start they’ve both made so far. The Royals, however, did see the rise in form winning four points in last two league outings. Such run moved them away from the drop zone and certainly boosted up the confidence ahead of this mid-week tie with the Hoops at Madejski Stadium.
Paul Clement’s men turned a corner improving their attacking performances of late. They bagged an impressive five-goal tally in last two ties against Hull City and Brentford. The 3-0 win over the Tigers ended a horrendous four-loss run in front of the home crowd. It was successfully backed up with a 2-2 draw to the red-hot Brentford who had previously won four on the spin at Griffin Park.
Reading vs QPR: Head-to-head
Reading lead the head to head tie by three wins coming into 28th encounter with the Hoops.
The Royals won 6, drew 3 and lost 4 of 13 home games against Queens Park Rangers.
It is interesting to note that none of last six head to head games between these two sides saw three or more goals scored.
Both teams snatched clean sheet home wins in the previous term of the Championship.
Reading vs QPR: Prediction
Unlike Reading, QPR just don’t look to be pulling up any trees at the moment. The Hoops sit 19th in the league ladder and they come into this off the back of three consecutive losses across competitions. They did not score a single goal along the way.
The most recent of failures was a tough one as Steve McClaren’s men fell 3-0 to Swansea City on Saturday afternoon away at Liberty Stadium.
We just have to take the tempting 2.40 odds offered for Reading to capitalize on most recent results and pick up a three-pointer against the struggling opposition here. Since the Hoops were struggling for goals badly of late, the alternative pick will be Reading to keep a clean sheet at 3.00 odds.
