EFL: Reading vs Forest

Reading vs Nottingham 


After 15 rounds, Reading is ranked 4th with 27 points.  This is the position to be in the Premier League playoff round next season.  Reading is only 1 point behind the top team Norwich but the 10th place team (Middlesbrough) is only 3 points behind Reading.

In other words, after 1/3 of the season, there has not been a split in the top, so just a drop in the top position will be significantly disturbed.  This round, teachers and students Veljko Paunovic have home advantage and welcome Nottingham, the new team has 13 points and is standing right above the group holding the red light.  This is a very disappointing achievement for Nottingham, because last season they also ranked seventh in the end, which is just below the promoted playoff group (only lost 1 point).

Theoretically, with such a difference between the two sides, Reading's door is very open, but experts think the home team will fail.

Compared to the beginning of the season, Reading is currently playing less convincing: only won 1/7 of the last round (lost 4).  Particularly at home, Reading lost 2/3 last match.

In addition, the fact that Reading accepts only a quarter also has unpredictable risks for those who believe in the upper door.  The last match was accepted by 1/4, Nottingham did not lose (that is, Asia wins)
