Reading Preview – Royals to fall to a fourth home defeat in six?

Veljko Paunovic made a superb start to his Reading career, guiding the Royals to seven wins and a draw from their opening eight Championship matches. However, the Berkshire club then went on a four-game losing run.

Reading have got back on track recently, though, winning three of their last six in the Championship. After a shock 2-1 home loss to Birmingham City, Reading hit back with a 1-0 win against Queens Park Rangers last weekend, with Michael Olise’s goal coming in the 89th minute at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1745 GMT, Tuesday 15 December)

Reading have been very inconsistent of late, especially at the Madejski Stadium. Since four wins on the spin, the Royals have won two and lost three of their last five home league matches. Having been beaten by Birmingham in their previous home fixture, can they get back to winning ways in front of their home supporters on Wednesday?

Norwich City Preview – Three more points for the in-form Canaries?

Daniel Farke’s Norwich City, who finished rock bottom of the Premier League last term, made a sluggish start to their Championship season. The Canaries took four points from their opening four, losing twice along the way.

However, Farke’s boys have been one of the most consistent sides in the division since mid-October. City have won a staggering ten of their last 14 league games, firing themselves to the top of the Championship table as a result.

After a disappointing defeat at Luton Town two weeks ago, which was their first reverse since October, the Canaries have bounced back with successive wins over Sheffield Wednesday, Nottingham Forest and Blackburn Rovers.

Key Facts – Reading vs Norwich City Betting Tip

  • Norwich have won four and drawn one of the last five meetings
  • The Canaries have won ten of their previous 14 in the Championship
  • Reading have lost three of their past five home games


Reading will be up for this one, especially after losing at home to Birmingham a week ago. However, we can see the table toppers chalking up another three points on their travels in midweek.

When these two teams last met at the Madejski, Teemu Pukki and Mario Vrancic were on target in a 2-1 Norwich win. A repeat scoreline on Wednesday is available at 17/2.

Pukki has been in fine scoring form of late, netting an impressive seven goals in his last seven appearances for club and country. We fancy the Finn to follow up last weekend’s brace with another goal here. Pukki is priced at 6/5 to score anytime.
