Tip Reading - Bristol City

 by Daniel Ngulu |

In their third game of the season, Reading finally got it right, beating Preston North End 2-1 in their second Championship game of the season. In Round 3 of the league, they will host Bristol City and going to the game, two points separate the two sides – Reading are 13th with three points and Bristol have one in 17th place. Reading have three losses in the last four matches and no clean sheet in five. Each of their last four matches has produced over 2.5 goals and they’ve conceded three goals in three of their last four matches. It hasn’t also been rosy at home, with the win over Preston being the first in the last five matches and there too, they haven’t managed a clean sheet. Reading have also failed to score in two of the last five home matches.

Bristol are still in search of their opening win of the season; they lost 2-1 to Middlesbrough in their last game and will hope they can recover here. In the last four matches they have two losses and two draws, one of which saw their elimination from the League Cup. Bristol have conceded two or more in three of their last four matches, with those three producing over 2.5 goals, while they’ve failed to score in just one of their last five matches. Away from home, in the Championship, Bristol have no win in the last six; they’ve lost four of them, but scored in each of the last five. As a result, four of their last five away matches have produced over 2.5 goals.

Our prediction

Both these teams are struggling defensively but they have some consistency in scoring, which has seen most of their matches produce at least three goals. With both trying to stabilize in their campaigns, we expect an end to end game, so back this too for over 2.5 goals.
