Only 3 points split the teams in the current standings. Both sides are close to the relegation zone and need more points. Reading’s form is much better lately (W3 D1 L1) compared to the 4-game winless run (D2 L2) on which Shrewsbury are at the moment.

Our first Reading vs Shrewsbury prediction is that the game will have at least 9 corners. This has been the case in 4 of Reading’s last 6 home matches and 3 of Shrewsbury’s last 5 away games.

Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 goals

We don’t expect too many goals in this game as both teams struggle in attack. That’s why our next Reading vs Shrewsbury prediction is for no more than 2 total goals. 

Only 1 of Reading’s last 10 games went over 2.5 goals. Also, 4 of Shrewsbury’s last 5 matches had fewer than 3 goals in them.
