Match Preview & Team News
The Reds and their fans are probably still in shock after gathering just 12 points from 14 games. Many were hoping for similar results to last campaign where Forest was an active candidate for EPL promotion. Now, they are sitting just one place above the relegation zone. Hosts, led by recently appointed Veljko Paunovic are playing above expectations and spent a lot of time as table leaders. Horrible form in late October/early November pushed them out of the playoff zone. Read on our Championship betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
Interestingly, the score when it comes to head to head matches between these two teams is tied. Both achieved 11 victories so far, plus eight draws. Last season’s clashes ended with identical 1-1 draws both in Nottingham and in Reading. The Royals have collected more points at this venue than on their away days. The current record at Madejski is five victories and two losses. Both of defeats happened recently to Preston North End and Stoke City, both ending 0-3 FT. The most recent win versus Bristol City last Saturday was big morale booster. Once again, Lucas Joao was the MVP.
At the moment of writing this preview, Nottingham Forest are still due to play their mid-week duel against Watford FC at home, trying to end unpleasant streak of three straight losses against Barnsley, Bournemouth and Swansea City. The Reds even failed to score one single goal in those duels.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
Visitors are in huge crisis when it comes to efficiency, while Reading kept four clean sheets in seven home games. We fancy the Under 2.5 bet here at 3/5 odds.
Home victory at 7/5 odds is well-wrapped present in our opinion. Reading had a lot of inconsistency during the last month, but they demonstrated fine form last Saturday at this venue by demolishing Robins.
