Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Reading
England – Carabao Cup
Date: Wednesday, 25 September 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Molineux Stadium (Wolverhampton).
It feels as if the days when Wolves used to terrorize the best teams in the Premier League are over. The 2018-19 campaign had been made special by the squad targeting the top-six of the league, and the losses dealt then.
It was to such an extent that, by the time the finals of the European competitions were fixed (Liverpool vs Spurs in the CL, Arsenal vs Chelsea in the EL), the Wanderers had beaten all four at one point or another in the season.
Reading, despite taking part in the Championship at the moment, could make hay while the sun shines, and take advantage of the struggles of their hosts. But surely, they will have to take care of the away handicap. And the sufferings of their own in the second division as well.
Wolves vs Reading Head-to-head (h2h)
- Wolves won the previous two clashes.
- Reading failed to score in five of the former six encounters.
- The last three games at this venue ended as wins to nil for the hosts.
- Six of the prior eight wins went to the teams that had home advantage.
Wolves vs Reading Prediction
The home team will be desperate to exert some form of domination against any opponent at this point in the season. They are winless so far in their PL campaign, which is in stark contrast to their performances in the previous edition.
Considering they have the home advantage, and holds superior stats in recent h2h clashes, and most importantly, since the guests are a part of the second division, and finally, with Reading placed 20th at present in the 24-squad table, the chances for a home victory is very high this match-day.
