Coventry vs Reading: Top Free Betting Tips

Coventry City need to return to their winning ways to keep their promotion hopes alive when they face off against Reading next. The Royals will be travelling to Coventry Building Society Arena on Saturday, 22 April. The Sky Blues dropped two points against Blackburn in the last game and Reading witnessed a draw against Luton Town.

Both Teams to Score Prediction: Yes

Though Reading have not secured a huge total of goals previously, they have scored one goal in four of the previous five league affairs. But they have not claimed a single clean sheet in the away fixtures since the start of November 2022. On the other hand, Coventry City have been on the scoring side in four of the previous five matches at Coventry Building Society Arena. The teams have also contributed to four BTTS outcomes in the same number of H2Hs at Coventry’s home. Hence, we predict both teams getting on the score sheet in this game.

Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

Coventry City have found the back of the net six times in the last three Championship games. On the other hand, Reading have also managed to score at once in each of the previous three fixtures away from Select Car Leasing Stadium. But the Royals have been dismal at the back and conceded 11 goals in the previous five fixtures on the road. Four of the last five meetings between these teams have also gone with Over 2.5 Goals. Based on these numbers, we predict this game to feature a total of Over 2.5 Goals.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Coventry

Coventry City have succeeded to score more than once in two of the previous three league outings. The Sky Blues have allowed only three goals at the back in the same duration. However, Reading have conceded at least twice in three of the previous four matches away from Select Car Leasing Stadium, leaking ten in total. On the scoring end, the Royals have scored one goal in each of the previous three road fixtures. Given the current scenario, we predict a 2-1 lead in the favour of Coventry City.

Followed by a 1-0 trail, Ben Wilson came to rescue Coventry from defeat in the fifth minute of the stoppage time for a 1-1 score.

But he received a red card and was sent off the field in the 56th minute. Luton managed to equalise the score in the 81st minute through Carlton Morris. Reading’s chances of success will also be affected due to nine players missing the upcoming game following injuries.
