Sheffield Wednesday vs Reading: In one of this Friday’s matches in England, counting towards the FA Cup’s 4th round
The local side Sheffield Wednesday and the visiting side Reading face off in the city of Sheffield, at Hillsborough Stadium, on a match between two teams that will meet for the 2nd time this season.
After having played 2 months ago, on a match counting towards the Championship that finished with a 0-0 draw.
The home side is making a satisfying season so far, being, in terms of Championship, on the bottom half of the league table, having a comfortable and consistent advantage over the relegation zone.
In terms of the other domestic competitions, they were eliminated early from the Carabao Cup, having on the FA Cup a good opportunity to achieve something positive in terms of the knock-out competitions, in case they are able to overcome an opponent of their own tier.
The team is coming off a streak of 4 unbeaten matches but, at the same time, they’ve only won 1 of them.
As for the visiting side, they are making a season, in terms of standings in the league, very similar to their opponents here, being on the bottom half of the league table and also having been eliminated from the Carabao Cup.
Having on the FA Cup an interesting opportunity to change the team’s panorama on the season.
They are coming off a negative streak of results, only having won 1 match on the last month & half, against a lower division team, for the FA Cup.
Sheffield Wednesday vs Reading – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Given the less positive moment of form in terms of results of both sides.
I see this match being a close and low-scoring one, as it tends to happen on these knock-out matches, with both teams cancelling each other out and, eventually, with a Replay being needed to decide the tie.
