Reading last season finished only one position above the relegation zone, so they are certainly hoping for a less stressful 2022/23 season. So far this summer, Reading had two friendly matches, and they didn't impress as they won 2-0 against Colchester and lost 2-0 vs Benfica. 

Reading last season had significant attacking problems. They have scored only 54 goals in 46 league games in the 2021/22 season. With only two scored goals in two friendly matches, we can see that things didn't change too much for Paul Ince's team. 

West Ham last season played very well. Still, lack of depth cost them a better position. In the end, David Moyes' team finished 7th on the Premier League table. West Ham had three friendly matches this summer (two wins and one draw). In the previous game, they won 2-1 on the road against Ipswich. 

West Ham had a good defense in three friendly matches this summer. They have allowed only two goals so far. Also, two of those three games went under 2.5 goals. 

Under 2.5 goals should be the right bet for this tie.

Reading are probably even weaker than last season because John Swift left the club this summer. The central midfielder last season had 11 goals and 13 assists in 38 Championship games. Reading brought Newcastle's Jeff Hendrick, who could be a replacement for Swift, but it is hard to expect that level of performance. We should expect more moves from Reading in the upcoming weeks.

West Ham have big ambitions for the new season. They already spent more than 50 million this summer. The most important signing is for sure Nayef Aguerd, center-back, who appeared in 31 matches last season for Rennes.
