Market: Brentford win
Odds: 7/10 @ Bet 365
Hoping to continue on their stellar run of form, Brentford will make the trip to Reading in a behind closed doors contest on Tuesday evening.
Starting with the hosts, continuing to show some worrying inconsistencies, Reading have tumbled away from the top half of the Championship standings. In their 39 second-tier matches this season, they have recorded 13 wins, 10 draws, and 16 defeats, scoring 48 and conceding 45 in return. With a points tally of 49, they open the midweek fixtures sat down in 15th and six points adrift of climbing into the top-12. As for their previous run of results, Reading have won just two of their last seven matches across all competitions and have won just three of their last 14 Championship contests. It is also worth noting that Tuesday’s hosts have managed to win just one of their last seven Championship appearances on home soil.
As for the visitors, enjoying what has been a stellar run of form, Brentford have their sights set on securing promotion this season. In their 39 Championship matches this year, they have recorded 19 wins, nine draws, and 11 defeats, scoring 67 and conceding 33 in return. Along with holding the best-attacking record in the division, it should also be noted that Brentford hold the second-best defensive tally in the Championship. As for their previous run of results, Tuesday’s guests have won their last three Championship contests on the bounce, scoring eight goals and conceding none in return. Sat just four points adrift of the automatic spots, we’re backing an away win for a high-flying Brentford in midweek.
