Reading Preview – Another bad day at the office for the Royals?

Reading started their season with a disappointing defeat to Blackpool last weekend. There was not a lot to split the two teams at Bloomfield Road, with a ninth-minute Callum Connolly goal proving to be the difference.

Reading had a miserable time on and off the field last term, though they survived relegation by four points in the end. There could be another tough road ahead for the Royals. However, Paul Ince will fancy his chances of keeping the Berkshire club in the Championship.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1214 GMT, Friday 5 August)

After last weekend’s opening loss, Reading will be desperate for a positive result here. They are the slight favourites, with the bookies pricing the home win at 6/4.

Cardiff City Preview – Bluebirds to sneak a win in Berkshire?

Cardiff City arguably picked up the shock result of the opening weekend. They were the second favourites at the Cardiff City Stadium against Norwich, who have just dropped down from the Premier League and are fancied to go straight back up.

Steve Morison’s men deserved their victory over the Canaries, with debutant Romaine Sawyers scoring the only goal of the game in South Wales. City have a new-look team this season and could be a dark horse in the race for the top six.

Reading vs Cardiff City Betting Advice

Junior Hoilett, who spent five good years with Cardiff, netted in a 1-0 Reading win at the Cardiff City Stadium back in October 2021. However, an awful lot has changed at both clubs since then.

The reverse fixture at the Select Car Leasing Stadium in April went City’s way. Lucas Joao put the Royals in front after just seven minutes. However, Cardiff rallied in the second period, and goals from Alfie Doughty and Will Vaulks turned the game on its head to give the Bluebirds a 2-1 away win.


Key Facts – Reading vs Cardiff City Betting Tip

  • Reading finished just four points above the drop zone last season
