Cardiff City will welcome Reading to Cardiff City Stadium for a matchday 11 fixture in England Championship. The last meeting on 16th April 2021 ended in a 1-1 draw. Both sides have met twenty-five times in the most recent seasons. Cardiff City has won 5 matches, and Reading triumphed in 6. Recent outings average 2.44 goals, while both teams score 68% of the time.

Cardiff City's last game in the England Championship against West Bromwich Albion at home ended in a 0-4 loss. The final result is not a surprise. Bluebirds played less with the ball and therefore had less clear cut chances.

Reading's previous game in the competition versus Derby County ended in an away 1-0 loss. Reading didn't turn up and failed to create clear cut chances for most of the game.

So far, Cardiff City plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.40 points per away game on average compared to 0.67 points at home. Although Cardiff City is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 0% home clean sheets.

Reading has picked up 13 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Reading wins 1.00 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Reading kept a clean sheet in just 17% of their visits.

It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Cardiff City lost the previous game at home but still have a lot of advantage over their opponent. They have won 17% of home games which gives them plenty of confidence for the upcoming fixture.

The Royals got the three points in their previous away games but are still off their best. Their away record does not convince me that they have what it takes to avoid defeat on Saturday.

I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Cardiff City wins on average 0.67 points per home game, compared to 1.00 points per away game for Reading. My prediction is Cardiff City to win.
