Betting Preview: Reading vs Brentford

Principle Partners Leo Vegas Sport UK take a look at tomorrow's match markets

13 April 2019

2-0 against Ipswich and and now it is time to head to Reading, where a 1-0 Brentford win is priced at 8/1 at LeoVegas SPORT.

Reading occupy 20th place and will be looking over their shoulder at Rotherham's rise which sees them now just two points away from the relegation zone. Reading will come into this clash in a confident mood after caging the Canaries to a rare home draw.

Brentford will believe they can enjoy plenty of possession against the Royals – midweek the Bees were buzzing and clocked a 61% possession rate against Ipswich, with 16 shots attempted. Brentford have won four of their last five away league matches against Reading, so we have reason to believe in an important away victory.

A repeat performance can lead to three points and Neal Maupay can be a good bet to score again. The Frenchman opened the scoring with his 22nd league goal of the season and you can back him to score first again with odds of 19/5.

He's three goals behind Teemu Pukki in the race for the Championship Golden Boot, and you can also back him at 14/1 to end as this season's highest scorer. Brentford are unbeaten in their last three games against Reading, and we were all entertained in the 2-2 draw back in September. A repeat scoreline is offered at 21/2 if you fancy a goal fest.

Leo's Prediction: Reading 1-2 Brentford, priced at 15/2

Goal scorer: Neal Maupay to score first is available at 19/5.
