EFL: Cardiff vs Reading


Cardiff will host Reading at home in the round of the English Championship, round 30.  Slightly better performance than the opponent with the advantage of the pitch are the factors that make Cardiff more appreciated and likely to win the final.


Cardiff owns a 6-match unbeaten match, but the number of victories this team has earned is only 2 matches, along with 4 draw results.  However, the defeat of the top team West Brom in the previous round has added a lot of confidence for the players to aim to improve the rankings for the rest of the season.  Currently, Cardiff is ranked 12th on the table with 42 points after 19 rounds and they can completely make it into the top 10 if they maintain a stable performance.

On the other side of the battle line, Reading is ranked 15th in the rankings when possessing 37 points after 19 rounds.  This team is not showing convincing performances recently when they have not played the last 4 matches.  Therefore, the urgent goal of Reading is to quickly get 3 points to end the string of poor results as well as relieve the players' psychology.  However, Cardiff's away visit will not be an easy challenge for them.

The past performance of the two teams in the past is relatively equal when most of the closest encounters ended with a tie, which partly shows the level of similarity between them.  However, at the present time, with a home advantage as well as a better performance, Cardiff is more appreciated and will likely win the final.

Scoring performance of both teams is relatively stable in recent matches.  As for Cardiff, they scored 8 goals in the last 5 matches.  Meanwhile, Reading also had time for himself to score 5 goals after the last 5 matches.  Therefore, it is likely that the upcoming match will end with many goals scored equally between the two clubs.
