Under 2.5 goals at Reading vs Sheffield United 19/20 for Tuesday’s Championship matchup

Posted November 22nd, 2021 | By: Tom Dunstan

Competition: Championship

Market: Under 2.5 goals

Odds: 19/20 @ 888sport

Two sides who find themselves really seeking some stability, Reading will host Sheffield United on Tuesday night in what could be a low-scoring contest.

Starting with the hosts, having to settle for a single point over the weekend, Reading are dealing with some issues both on and off the pitch. In their 18 Championship matchups so far this season, they have recorded seven wins, two draws and nine defeats, scoring 23 and conceding 29 in return. Hit with a points deduction last week, the Royals currently have 17 points on the board and open the midweek fixtures holding just a two-point buffer from dropping into the relegation zone. As for their recent run of results, last seen playing out a 1-1 draw against Nottingham Forest on home soil, Reading have won just one of their last six Championship matchups. Likewise, it should also be noted, Tuesday’s hosts have seen five of those six contests finish with under 2.5 goals.

As for the visitors, putting in a toothless display last time out, Sheffield United find themselves in the midst of their own sluggish run of form. In their opening eight matchups since making their Championship return, they have recorded five wins, five draws and eight defeats, scoring 22 and conceding 26 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 20, the Blades open the midweek fixtures sat down in 17th and already four points adrift of breaking into the top-half. As for their recent run of results, last seen playing out a 0-0 stalemate against Coventry on home soil, Sheffield United have failed to win any of their last four Championship matchups. Likewise, it should be noted, with three of their last four fixtures finishing with under 2.5 goals, we’re backing a similar outcome on Tuesday night.
