Reading will welcome Derby County to Select Car Leasing Stadium for a matchday 26 fixture in England Championship. The last meeting on 29th September 2021 ended in a Derby County 1-0 win. Both sides have met twenty-nine times in the most recent seasons. Reading has won 15 matches, and Derby County triumphed in 9. Recent outings average 2.93 goals, while both teams score 55% of the time.

Reading's latest fixture against West Bromwich Albion ended in an away 1-0 loss. I expected more from Reading. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points.

Derby County's previous game in the competition versus Stoke City ended in an away 2-1 win. Although Derby County countered for most of the game, it was more than enough to win. Derby County was much better in the second half and scored in the 16th and 85th minute.

Since the start of the season, Reading is more dominant at home. They have four wins out of 15 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 13% home clean sheets.

Derby County has picked up 13 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Derby County wins 0.86 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Derby County kept a clean sheet in just 29% 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 Derby County.

Still, I expect a close game and don't think that we will see a lot of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.21 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 35% of Reading's home and Derby County's away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
