Brentford vs Reading Match Preview

leaguelane.com, 19 November 2019, 16:27

Current form, and positioning in the table, coupled with the home advantage, pick out Brentford as the favorite for this fixture. Moreover, though reading seems to be in fine form, their performances on the road give rise to a huge question mark.

Brentford vs Reading Head-to-head (h2h)

The last time these two met, Reading won 2-1.

11 of the former 13 matches had goals at either end of the pitch.

Three of the previous four overall wins went to the teams with home advantage.

Since 1999, every single game at this venue have had goals at both ends of the pitch.

Three of the preceding five match-ups at this stadium saw the home team scoring two or more goals.

Brentford vs Reading Prediction

Reading had taken on QPR the last time they were on the road. The problems faced by the former in away games were on full display as the Rangers went ahead with a goal even before the half-hour mark. Though later the guests were able to equalize, once again the home team took the lead.

Late into the match, the visiting contingent did find the back of the net to share the spoils with QPR.

Opponents Brentford had taken on Wigan, on the road, and in spite of the handicap, managed to come through with a clean sheet, and importantly, with three goals. One early goal in the first half and two late ones in the latter 45 minutes completed the proceedings for the guests then.

Coming Saturday, the fact that Reading is on the road will play a role in determining the outcome of the game. They are winless in their prior five fixtures and have lost three of them as well. In addition, they have failed to score in two of their last five such battles, while conceding twice or more in two of their previous four.

Meanwhile, their opposite number has won four of their last five overall match-ups and scored thrice or more in all four of these. Also, they have lost just once in their former seven appearances in front of the home crowd as well.

As such, the hosts Brentford seem more likely to register the win this match-day. However, the recent overall form of Reading, where they have scored twice or more in their latest three games, and the 100% record of h2h encounters at this venue having goals at both ends of the pitch, pick out the BTTS as a strong pick for this fixture.
