Birmingham vs Reading 16.12.2022
Two former Premier League regulars Birmingham City and Reading will trade tackles in the Championship this weekend as the race for places in the Premier League intensifies. The hosts who are 14th on the log have only won one of their last five league games and seven wins in the league all season.
Reading, on the other hand have fared a little better under former Manchester United midfielder, Paul Ince who is their current manager. They have ten wins under their belt with 36 points and sitting 9th on the table. In addition, they won their last two games which means they will go into this match buzzing.
Their previous meetings have generated a decent number of goals, but their respective recent results have not had a flurry of goals. In their last five respective games, no fixture has recorded a total of four goals in a match.
Therefore, we reckon there will be less than four total goals in this fixture.
