Birmingham City Football Club surprised everyone last season when they managed to win the league title, despite a weak start. But, this season the team started even worse, so it is unlikely that they will be able to defend their title. Birmingham City are only eighth in the table and already nine points behind the leader. The hosts have the same number of wins and losses, so Birmingham City now lose points very often, despite the fact that the head coach managed to keep the entire winning squad, and money was also spent on new players. Birmingham City are especially terrible on the road, but at home the team still regularly takes points, having lost only once. Problems appeared in all areas of the field, because Birmingham City not only scores less, but also concedes much more. Left back and defensive midfielder will not help the hosts in this game.
With a rich history, Reading Football Club is a debutant in the top division, having previously played in the lower leagues for many years. Such success is due to a talented generation of football players, as well as a good mentor who, despite limited opportunities, managed to build a well-played team that constantly presses and quickly moves from defense to attack. Thanks to all this, Reading is not in the relegation zone, as many expected before the start of the season, but takes a high sixth place, even having a chance to compete for qualification to the Europa League. On the road, Reading performs a little weaker than at home, but even away the team tries to attack as much as possible and in each match the guests adhere to their style of play, based on high speed and constant forward passes. Only a reserve goalkeeper will not play for FC Reading.
The world’s leading football experts have no doubts that in the match between Birmingham City and Reading, the hosts will win, so they advise betting on their victory with a handicap of -1.5 goals.
