Reason For Cardiff vs Reading Predictions

  • Cardiff haven’t won any of their last nine meetings with Reading
  • The visitors have lost once in four games this season
  • Five of the last nine clashes between the pair in Wales have finished level
  • Two of the last three clashes between these two have finished 1-1

These two sides clashed four times across the course of last term, with those meetings struggling to separate them. The pair drew their FA Cup tie last term and then drew the replay, with the Royals edging it on penalties.

Cardiff City are winless in their last nine matches in all competitions against Reading (D3 L6). That’s not good news for their promotion hopes, which only got back on track last weekend. The Bluebirds caught out a poor Nottingham Forest side, but that’s their only win in three games this season.

Meanwhile, Reading have claimed two wins from two in the league and three from four in all competitions. Given their great record against the Bluebirds, we can see them holding on for something in Wales. As a result, our first prediction here is Reading Double Chance.

Given that Reading have won just one of their last nine away league matches against Cardiff (D5 L3), we’re backing this clash to finish level. Two of the last three clashes between them have finished 1-1, so that’s our correct score prediction for Saturday’s encounter.
