Reading will welcome Barnsley to Select Car Leasing Stadium for a matchday 12 fixture in England Championship. The last meeting on 2nd April 2021 ended in a 1-1 draw. Both sides have met nineteen times in the most recent seasons. Reading has won 10 matches, and Barnsley triumphed in 3. Recent outings average 2.21 goals, while both teams score 47% of the time.

Reading's latest fixture against Cardiff City ended in an away 1-0 win. Reading was very effective while counter-attacking. In the end, it was enough to make the difference between the two teams. Reading set the tone early and scored in the 38 minute.

Barnsley's recent game against Millwall ended in a home 0-1 loss. The Tykes's strikers were frustrated by the lack of good chances.

Since the start of the season, Reading is more dominant at home. They have four wins out of 10 games on home soil. Although Reading 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 20% home clean sheets.

Barnsley has picked up 3 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Barnsley wins 0.33 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Barnsley kept a clean sheet in just 0% of their visits.

It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Draw or Barnsley.
