Cardiff City to ‘Win to Nil’ at 5/4 (2.25) – William Hill


Cardiff City v Reading Past Meetings

This will be the 32nd competitive fixture between the two clubs, with Cardiff ahead on the head-to-head record with 11 wins to Reading’s nine.

However, the Bluebirds are without a win in four in this fixture and have won just once in the past seven meetings.

The clash earlier in the season at the Madejski Stadium ended 2-2 with a Calum Paterson own goal and Modou Barrow strike putting the hosts in control before Joe Bennett and Lee Tomlin struck.

Reading triumphed on their last visit to the Welsh capital in August 2016 thanks to Yann Kermongant’s strike.


Cardiff City v Reading Stats

Cardiff are on the verge of promotion to the Premiership but must win this game to guarantee their spot in next season’s top flight.

They have won three of their last four games and lead third-placed Fulham – who head to Birmingham on the final day – by just one point.

Reading have not yet confirmed their safety in the Championship – they lie two points and three places above the relegation zone but could yet be dragged into the bottom three.

Burton – who go to Preston – would go above the Royals with a win while Bolton – at home to Nottingham Forest – would need a three-point and hugely unlikely 16-goal swing to leapfrog Paul Clement’s side.

Reading have won just four of their last 28 matches.

Cardiff have the second best home record in the division with 51 points from their 22 outings, while Reading’s away form has brought 20 points from 22 fixtures.


Cardiff City v Reading Team News

Cardiff will continue with their 4-3-3 line-up which is usually headed by Kenneth Zohore with Junior Hoilett and Nathan Mendez-Laing providing the width.

Reading are expected to continue to deploy their 4-4-2 line-up which is headed by Yann Kermorgant and Jon Dadhi Boedvarsson.  Tommy Elphick and Chris Martin are among those pushing for starts.


Reasons for Cardiff City v Reading Bets

Cardiff are on the verge of a wonderful promotion to the top flight of English football and just need to overcome struggling Reading to clinch their rise.

Everything points towards a home victory in this fixture due to form and a gulf in quality between the two sides.

The Bluebirds will be playing in front of a packed house and against a side who conceded four goals in the final 20 minutes at home to Ipswich in their most recent fixture.

Cardiff have won two of their most recent three matches to nil while conversely, Reading have lost three of their last four games without scoring a goal. Therefore, backing the home side to ‘Win to Nil’ looks like one of the better Cardiff v Reading betting tips.
