Match Preview & Team News

Cardiff City bounced back from the opening defeat at the hands of Wigan Athletic by beating Luton Town 2-1 last weekend at home. The easier schedule at the start of the Bluebirds’ life in the second division will be continued on Sunday exactly at noon when they travel to Berkshire to take on Reading at Madejski.

We could be in for another high-scoring affair given that both teams have been fairly easy to break down in their opening two fixtures. The Royals have shipped five goals in defeats to Sheffield Wednesday and Hull City. Since the Bluebirds scored two goals in each of their two matches thus far, we fancy their chances of producing once again here at Madejski.

The Royals finished the previous Championship campaign at 20th position. Their pre-season results do not promise better times in the new season either. Reading lost here of last four friendlies and they have failed to keep a single clean sheet in the last seven outings across competitions. The only bright side to their season so far came on Tuesday night when they managed to go past League One side Wycombe Wanderers to advance into the second round of the League Cup on penalties.

The Welsh outfit played the top-flight football last season. They have a decent attacking line-up for this level of competition and they should be able to create chances past the struggling defensive line of Reading’s here.

The hosts will rely on the head to head record knowing they have not lost any of the last five matches against the Bluebirds.

Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction

The value is massive with Cardiff City to win & Both Teams To Score bet at the odds of 7/2.

Goals Market Prediction

You can’t make a mistake backing goals at both ends at the 4/5 odds given both sides’ defensive vulnerability at the start of the season.
