Reading vs Swansea Championship Prediction by LeagueLane

Reading vs Swansea
England – Championship
Date: Monday, 18 April 2022
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Select Car Leasing Stadium.

Swansea are currently one of the best teams in the competition at the moment. They are on a long unbeaten run, and are finding the back of the net at an impressive rate.

They are placed 14th in the table at the moment, and need a surplus of at least seven points to climb level with the sixth-placed squad. Note that a sixth-place finish is needed at the least to qualify for the playoffs.

Do also note that the team has a game in hand.

While it is unlikely that they will actually pull this off, they have nothing else to lose, and they are surely going to make an attempt.

Meanwhile, Reading too have been on a good run recently. They are placed 21st in a table of 24, and it deserves praise that they managed this feat, even after the federation deducted six points off of their tally.

By the looks of things, anticipate a thrilling fixture between the two teams this Monday, and expect goals to come in plenty as well.
