This is a team that is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses in away matches; against 7 wins, 5 draws and 3 losses at their stadium. In their last match, for the Championship, they got a home tie against Burnley by (0‑0). In the last 10 home matches Reading has won 5, tied 3 and lost 2. Their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches.

They have conceded the first goal in 9 of their 15 matches, and have only turned the score around in 1. there is 1 period that stands out in the last 20 home matches for all competitions: they have suffered 5 of their 14 goals between minutes (0'‑15').

      Reading comes for this match after a goalless home draw, against Burnley. The young Czech Matej Vydra is the most offensive reference of the home team; however, he presents some gaps in finishing, and he records only two scored goals in the championship. Reading usually operates in a 4-3-3, on which favors the quick leaves for the attack and the conducting of the offensive process through the flanks. The young Brazilian Lucas Piazon is the player with more freedom in the central area of the pitch and, his mission is to support the forward players.

      Analysis of West Bromwich

      The away team comes to this stage of the Copa FA (5ta Ronda) after havinf played in the previous rounds against: Peterborough United and Bristol City. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses in away matches, with 11 goals scored and 18 conceded; against 4 wins, 7 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 19 goals scored and 19 conceded. In their last match, for the Premier League, they got an away win against Everton by (0‑1). In the last 10 away matches West Bromwich Albion has won 3, tied 3 and lost 4.

      In this competition, they haven’t lost any of the last 4 matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 3 of the last 4 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 4 matches for this competition. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 8 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

      West Bromwich comes motivated for this match after an away home win, by 0-1, against Everton. Rondón, after 14 minutes, scored the only goal of the match. The Venezuelan Rondón is the most offensive reference of the visiting team, and his main feature is the speed and the ability to pass. It’s important to note the ability of this team in the air balls, and the midfielders Olsson and Evans are relentless in this aspect. One of the weapons of West Bromwich is the attack through the flanks, where they take advantage of the speed of their arrows, McClean and Sessègnon. Morrison and McManaman won’t be able to contribute to their team because they are injured.

      Betting suggestion:

      The most likely scenario for this match will be the occurrence of slight goals. Both teams have some offensive weaknesses and the goal average on each one matches mirrors the closed way they operate. Thus, it’s foreseeable that both teams come for this match in a cautious way, focusing on the defensive process.
