Reason For Derby vs Reading Predictions

  • Derby have scored in 22 of their last 23 league fixtures.
  • The Rams have won three of their last four home games against Reading.
  • Reading have lost five of their last eight league matches.

Derby look to build on last term’s late playoff push

Derby looked a much better team in the second half of last season and can start the 2020-21 campaign in the right manner by defeating Reading at Pride Park.

There is a nice mixture of youth and experience in the Rams’ squad with attacking midfielder Louie Sibley and Wayne Rooney at opposite ends of the age spectrum (18 and 34) although both have match-winning qualities.

Sibley burst onto the scene with a superb hat-trick in a 3-2 success at Millwall in June, while Rooney contributed five goals in 20 league appearances despite playing in a much deeper role.

While Derby look playoff contenders, Reading face a tough season under their new manager Veljko Paunovic.

They finished last season with three successive defeats and their squad looks unbalanced with lots of strikers and very few options in defence and midfield.

Reading may do a lot of late business in the transfer window but we predict they will slide to a 2-0 defeat at Derby, who have scored in their last 11 home league fixtures.
