Blackburn vs Reading: Top Free Betting Tips

Getting on the losing streak, Reading is set to face Blackburn Rovers for the next fixture in EFL Championship on Wednesday, 15 March. The Rovers will also be more furious than usual as they witnessed a break in their winning streak before this game against Stoke City.

Match Result Prediction: Blackburn to Win

Blackburn Rovers have found five victories in the last six attempts, including a win against Leicester City in FA Cup. The Riversiders are also undefeated in the recent six home duels, winning the last three in a  row. On the other hand, Reading has been desperate in recent visits and lost all of the previous six away outings. Blackburn has also won two of the last three home H2Hs against Reading and we expect them to continue making the same impact in this game.

Both Teams to Score Prediction: No

Reading has made no improvements offensively in the away outings as they have scored zero goals in the last five visits to EFL Championship. On the contrary, Blackburn Rovers have made enough preparation by getting consecutive five clean sheets at home in the second division. On the scoring end, the  Rovers have missed the target only once in that course. Blackburn was able to limit the Royals from scoring in the previous home meeting and they are in the position to repeat the result.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-0 to Blackburn

Reading has conceded five goals in the last away outing against Middlesbrough and conceded more than once in three of the previous five visits. In opposition, Blackburn Rovers have found the back of the net multiple times in three of the previous four attempts in two different competitions. The hosts also confirmed a 2-0 lead in the last hosting meeting against Reading. Given these statistics, we assume the Riversiders to record the same lead of 2-0 again in this duel.
