After a slow start to the season, the hosts have recovered and are now competing for positions in Europe. However, in their most recent league game, they were defeated 4-0 by league leaders Burnley. Swansea trailed by four goals when Joel Piroe’s red card in the second half put an end to any dreams of a comeback.
Reading, meanwhile, has had a generally successful campaign but has recently had trouble gaining ground. In their most recent match, they suffered a 2-0 loss to struggling West Bromwich Albion. Reading will be devastated to have lost since they were the team that dominated, especially after the restart.
With their most recent defeat ending a four-game winning streak, Swansea will now try to recover. They have won three of their past four games at home, and they intend to take full advantage of it.
Reading, however, has lost three straight games after winning their previous four games. They might lose here since they have had trouble travelling this year.
Swansea City will likely defeat Reading 2-1.
First-round pick: Swansea City
Both teams to score in the second tip? (Both teams have found the back of the net in all but two of their last eight matchups.)
Goals – Over/Under 2.5 – Over 2.5 goals is the third tip (All but one of the last six games between the two teams have produced more than 2.5 goals.)
