EFL: Reading vs Boro

Boro was terrible at home in front of Bristol City, the Middlesbrough players could not cut the tail holding the red light. In the context that the season has only 3 rounds ahead, Middlesbrough clearly needs a push to return. Therefore, encountering a Reading with no more goals to strive will be an opportunity for Middlesbrough to create a successful escape momentum.

Despite being a guest of Charlton, Reading gently brought 3 points with George Puscas's only goal on the 11m mark. With 3 consecutive unbeaten rounds, including 2 wins, Reading is gradually regaining its form. This time with 56 points after 43 rounds, they helped get the 13th position in the rankings with an 11-point gap with the current red-light group. Say that to see, the season seems to have arranged with Reading. Therefore, it is difficult to expect Reading will play with the best effort in the next 90 minutes of competition. Moreover, even at the stage of struggling with relegation, Reading also did not create confidence at home. Specifically, the last 11 matches in all competitions, Reading won only 1 match, the rest were 6 draws and 4 defeats.

Middlesbrough are playing relatively poorly recently when receiving 4 defeats in the past 6 rounds. This team quickly lost the advantage to be able to head out of the bottom area of ​​the table when they owned only 47 points after 43 matches. With 19th place on the table and only 2 points higher than the red-holding group, of course Middlesbrough will enter the last 3 rounds with no less worry. However, the opportunity for Middlesbrough to gain more points in this round is clearer than ever. Remember, Middlesbrough has always bullied opponents before, because the last 6 encounters Reading they won. Away from home, the last 4 matches Middlesbrough also won 9 out of 12 maximum points. Combined with a higher determination than the opponent, 3 points for the visitors is not a surprise.
