Middlesbrough will welcome Reading to Riverside Stadium for a matchday 27 fixture in England Championship. The last meeting on 25th September 2021 ended in a Reading 1-0 win. Both sides have met twenty-three times in the most recent seasons. Middlesbrough has won 11 matches, and Reading triumphed in 7. Recent outings average 2.04 goals, while both teams score 35% of the time.

Middlesbrough's latest fixture against Blackpool ended in an away 2-1 win. Middlesbrough was very effective while counter-attacking. In the end, it was enough to make the difference between the two teams. Middlesbrough was much better than Blackpool in the second half and scored in the 60th and 90+3 minute.

Reading's recent game against Fulham ended in a home 0-7 loss. The Royals's strikers were frustrated by the lack of good chances.

Since the start of the season, Middlesbrough is more dominant at home. They have eight wins out of 14 games on home soil. The Boro's good defensive display is key to their success. They didn't concede in 43% of home games.

Reading has picked up 5 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 8% of their visits.

It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Recently they enjoy playing at home, having won four consecutive matches. Middlesbrough is currently unbeaten at home in four games. Since the start of the season, they have just four home defeats.

The Royals failed to win in two consecutive away games. It will be a big surprise to turn up on Saturday and win against Middlesbrough. Furthermore, they are in really bad away form, having lost two consecutive games on the road.

I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Middlesbrough wins on average 1.86 points per home game, compared to 1.00 points per away game for Reading. My prediction is Middlesbrough to win.
