Reading vs Cardiff City Prediction 16 April 2021

Tournament: EFL Championship
Location: Madejski Stadium
Match date: 04/16/2021 at 17:00

The 42nd matchday of the Championship will open with an interesting match between Reading and Cardiff.

With five matches to go in the campaign, Reading are seventh with 66 points, a 56:45 goal difference and just two points behind the play-off zone. However, now the Royals are far from optimal conditions. Over the past month, they beat Derby 3:1, tied 1:1 with QPR and 1:1 with Barnsley, and surrendered to Birmingham (1:2) and Watford (2:0).

Cardiff are in eighth place with 59 points on 57:45 shooting statistics. As you can see, the Bluebirds have already dropped out of the list of candidates for promotion. In the previous five duels, they played with varying success against Stoke City (0:0), Swansea (1:0), Nottingham (0:1), Sheffield Wednesday (0:5) and Blackburn (2:2).

We will give a slight advantage to Reading, which need success in this confrontation much more. And the Royals feel much better at home than away.
