Reading are facing a difficult start to the season in the Championship, as Paul Ince's team have suffered two defeats from their opening three games, with one triumph. In fact, coach Paul Ince has plenty of reasons to be concerned, as his team is not performing well on the field so far. To make matters worse, Reading ended their participation in the EFL Cup as The Royals lost to fourth-tier side Stevenage (1-2). Meanwhile, Blackburn fought fiercely to secure a place among the top 6, but their performance in season finale was desperate, winning only two of their last eight games of the season. However, how eager Blackburn are to return to the English top flight is best described by their impressive form, where The Rovers are the only team in the Championship with a maximum of 9 points.

Reading vs Blackburn Rovers Betting Tips: BTTS

The two teams managed to use the home field advantage in the last campaign, each achieving a triumph in front of their fans, while Reading are looking for a third consecutive home triumph. The red alarm has been activated in Reading's dressing room after they suffered an embarrassing 0-4 defeat at the weekend to newcomer and the lowest-budget team in the Championship - Rotherham United. Namely, Reading was the third most effective team during the previous campaign, and it should be noted that they had BTTS in 8 of the previous 11 home competitive games, including both home games in the new season.

Meanwhile, Blackburn are undefeated in their previous 9 games, while The Rovers currently keep a 100% record from their opening four games in all competitions, keeping clean sheets in all but one. Overall, Blackburn were a solid away team last term, but the team is full of optimism, after they found the net in 10 of their previous 11 away games in all competitions. Blackburn will not have an easy task in mid-week, as Reading have beaten them in five of their previous six meetings on home turf. All things considered, we believe both teams will be sharp enough in attack to find the net.

Reading Team News

Reading has major injury problems ahead of the new campaign and manager Paul Ince is likely to make very few changes to the side that started against Rotherham.

So Liam Moore, Lucas João, Scott Dann, Dejan Tetek, Ovie Ejaria, Femi Azeez and Yakou Meite are all injured, while Sam Hutchinson is marked as questionable.
