EFL: Reading vs Swans

During the round of the first match of the English Premier League, the match witnessed a very interesting match. Specifically, "Black Swan" Swansea will come to the guests on the field of the familiar Reading prey with the goal of winning all 3 points to save hope of reaching the play-off round. Let's wait and see, Swansea created a shock to continue to dream about the Premier League arena.

Another season in which Reading only played the role and did not make another breakthrough. At the moment, Reading is getting 56 points after 15 wins, 11 draws and 19 losses. They are ranked 15th in the chart and have a very safe distance from the red light group when it is 8 points more than this group. Say that to see the goal of the home team was exhausted from prison before the round match took place. Because of completing the goal of relegation so early, Reading has been somewhat subjective in the recent rounds. In the last 5 rounds, Reading has won 7 points out of the maximum 15 points it can be won. Notably, the last 2 defeats against Middlesbrough (1-2) and Blackburn (3-4). With that performance, encountering an opponent as envious as Swansea could hardly bring luck to Reading.

There were many times when Swansea had a great opportunity to reach the finish of the promotion play-off group. However, the instability eventually led to the "Black Swan" missing the opportunity. By the end of the 45th round, Swansea had 67 points and was temporarily ranked 7th in the rankings. The opportunity for Swansea to qualify for the promotion play-off group is still there when the black swan is just 3 points behind the team ranked above Cardiff. However, with a difference of 5 goals compared to Cardiff, it is too difficult for Swansea to create a miracle. Not to mention, Swansea no longer has the right to self-determination, because 1 point is enough for their opponent to end all ambitions. Because half-heartedly Cardiff lost to the bottom team Hull is extremely unlikely. The head-to-head record is in favor of the away team as they have won 3 wins and 2 draws in the last 5 encounters.
