Reading vs Swansea City
English Carabao Cup , Season 2017/18
Date: Tuesday, 19th September 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Madejski Stadium (Reading).
Reading will host a Premier League side in the likes of Swansea in a match counting for a place in the 1/8 finals of the League Cup.
The Royals had a surprising start of the season after they occupied the 3rd place in last year’s Championship. They are now standing on a shameful 18th place on the log after 7 matches.
Jaap Stam’s team have a tough match in the weekend against Hull and should rest some players as they need to recover a long road in the league. Also, the Dutch manager has the chance to try new playing styles in the cup that could put them on the right track.
The Swans smashed their last League Cup opponents with 1-4. They played against a team from League One in the likes of Milton Keynes.
Swansea comes after a draw against Tottenham who surely gave the players a boost of confidence. Paul Clement’s side hasn’t lost any departure in the new season even if they had tough ones (Tottenham, Palace and Southampton).
Reading vs Swansea City: Head to Head
The Royals haven’t won against Swansea since 2008. However, the meetings between the two teams have been hard to predict as there is no dominant side.
Reading vs Swansea City: Prediction
Swansea is the more valuable team which had a better start to the season. They are yet to concede in their away games. Meanwhile, Reading need to focus big on the upcoming Championship fixture and a number of fringe players are expected to find their names in the starting eleven.
Therefore, backing Swansea to win this outright is the best option I could find for you.
