READING VS BARNSLEY PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
As the team that has the home-field advantage, with the squad that is said to be the strongest at the moment, Reading is considered by Asian bookies to be the top team.
Reading’s performance in the last 5 matches: W W W L W
This season, Reading is having a relatively stable performance in recent times. After the last 5 appearances in the Championship, the home team of Select Car Leasing Stadium had 4 victories and 1 loss. In the last match, The Kop also overcame a rather uncomfortable opponent, Cardiff with a score of 1-0. With this achievement, they climbed to 10th place on the rankings.
According to statistics, after 19 matches, players who put their trust in the home team of Select Car Leasing Stadium only had 6 times of joy of victory, while there were only 13 draws and only 1 loss. It can be said that Reading is a name that is not bringing much luck to bettors this season.
Barnsley’s performance in the last 5 matches: D D L L L
On the other side of the front line, Barnsley is having a relatively poor performance in recent times. Specifically, in the last 5 times in the Championship arena, coach Markus Schopp’s army could not get any victories, instead of having 3 consecutive defeats and 2 draws. Obviously, Barnsley’s visit here to Reading’s pitch will be fraught with difficulties.
Meanwhile, Barnsley is also a not-so-easy bet for bettors. When counting in the last 17 matches, players who put their faith in The Tykes have only won 5 times, with 2 draws, but 10 times have to go empty-handed. It can be seen that Barnsley’s visit here to the Select Car Leasing Stadium will be full of “storms”.
Select: Reading FT.
Since 1994, Reading and Barnsley have faced each other 25 times, in all competitions. The statistics show that the home team Reading is the team with outstanding achievements, having 12 wins, compared to 6 times on Barnsley’s side.

Considering the last 5 times Reading welcomed Barnsley at home to Select Car Leasing Stadium, they had 3 wins, while the away team only got 1 time and got all 3 points.
Select: Reading FT.
This season, Reading’s matches in recent times are not having too many goals scored. Specifically, in the last 4 matches of this team, there have been 3 matches with less than 2.5 goals. In the last match against Cardiff City, the player who placed the Under bet got money when the match ended with only 1 goal scored.
