Match: Reading – Brighton Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: Saturday, 20 August, 2016
Start time: 15:00 UK
Reading host Brighton in the game from the 4th round of Championship on Saturday.
Reading confronts the leader Brighton in this round. The Royals lost their last two matches, which was a guest. Last week they gave way to Wolverhampton 0:2, after lost from Newcastle 1:4. In the first round of the season Reading beat Preston 1:0 and now we’ll see if as the host team plays better. At the end of last season, Reading lost their last three home games but now will try to record a second consecutive game without losing at Madejski.
Almost reached to Brighton to win direct promotion to the Premier League last season, then the team fails the playoffs. The Seagulls started strong this season and after the first three rounds are first with 7 points. They have not conceded a goal this season. In the last round, Brighton beat Rotherham 3: 0, and before that win against Nottingham with the same result. In his first game of the season, The Seagulls made 0:0 as away against Derby County.
Last season the two teams shared one point at Madejski Stadium after a draw 1:1. Brighton won the game at home with 1:0, but in this rivalry, there are only four wins from 20 games against Reading. Given the best game on the visitors’ defense and a poor start to the season by Reading, expect to witness the match with two or fewer goals.
