Reading vs Swansea: Top Free Betting Tips

Off the back of a winless momentum, Swansea City are set to visit Reading for the next EFL Championship fixture on Monday, 26 December. The Swans also ended their winning sequence in the last game with an away defeat against Birmingham.

Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

Swansea comes into this game after scoring three goals in the last game, away from home and they added a total of seven goals in the previous four visits. Reading has also found the back of the net five times in the previous three outings in the Championship. But the Royals didn’t produce a fair play defensively and allowed six goals in the last four games. Moreover, all of the last five H2Hs of these sides have finished with over 2.5 goals. Given the present situation, we predict another high-scoring total between these sides.

Both Teams to Score Prediction: Yes

Reading will be optimistic to create scoring chances in this game as they have hit the target in four of the last five outings. However, the team has claimed only one clean sheet in that course. On the other hand, Swansea missed the target in two of the previous four away outings but they should be confident in this game as they have caged the ball into the net in all of the recent five visiting H2Hs against the Royals. The last five H2Hs at Reading’s home have ended with BTTS patterns and we expect no change in the trend in this game.

Correct Score Prediction: 1-2 to Swansea

Reading conceded three goals in the last attempts and managed to score more than once in only one of the last five home outings. On the contrary, Swansea has done better in this area and hit the target at least twice in three of the previous four away games. The Swans have also been brilliant offensively at the home of Reading, scoring more than once in all of the last five visiting H2Hs. Following two clean sheets in the last three away duels, we predict Swansea to confirm a lead of 1-2 at the end.

Reading vs Swansea: Form, Recent Games, and News

Reading Preview

After leaking three goals in less than forty minutes, the Royals lost their winning ways previously with a 3-2 defeat against Birmingham City. A total of ten wins and two draws have led the teams to stand in the tenth spot on the points table. The club gaffer Paul Ince will have an injury-free squad to enter this game.

Swansea Preview

The Swans played their consecutive seventh winless game in the last attempt and managed a point with a 3-3 draw against Coventry City. But a combination of eight wins and eight draws have assisted them to get to tenth position on the points table. Central Midfield Liam Walsh is the only player to miss the game due to an Achilles tendon rupture.
