Reading

Preview
Blackpool and Reading meet at Bloomfield Road, in a 2nd leg match for the FA Cup (3rd Round Replays). These two teams tied (2‑2) in the 1st leg match. The only recent head‑to‑head between these two teams was played on 04‑01‑2020, and ended in a draw by (2‑2). Both teams register significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth atention.

Analysis of Blackpool

The home team comes to this 2nd leg match in advantage after a (2‑2) away draw in the previous match, so a tie may be enough to qualify for the next round. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 2 wins, 9 draws and 4 losses in away matches, with 18 goals scored and 19 conceded; against 8 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses at their stadium, with 28 goals scored and 20 conceded. Blackpool has won 6, tied 1 and lost 3 of the last 10 home matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded at least one goal in each of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches. They have conceded the first goal in 7 of their 15 matches, and have only turned the score around in 2.

The club has had a median campaign so far in the English League 1, momentarily occupying only 13th place, with 34 points from 24 games. The team does not know what it is to win for 6 games, but in the Fa Cup in the first leg, the draw by 2x2 away home was an excellent result, since if the return game ends tied by 0x0 or 1x1 Blackpool wins the spot for the next round.

Confirmed Lineup: M. Howard, C. Tilt, O. Turton, J. Husband, B. Heneghan, L. Feeney, J. Spearing, C. Guy, M. Virtue-Thick, A. Gnanduillet, N. Delfouneso.
Coach: S. Grayson.

Analysis of Reading

The away team comes to this 2nd leg match in disadvantage, since despite the 1st leg draw they have conceded 2 goals at home. This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 7 draws and 3 losses in away matches, with 20 goals scored and 14 conceded; against 6 wins, 2 draws and 7 losses at their stadium, with 24 goals scored and 23 conceded. In their last match, for the Championship, they got a home tie against Nottingham Forest by (1‑1). In the last 10 away matches Reading has won 3, tied 4 and lost 3. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 8 times and have only turned the score around in 1. In the last 17 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 9 of their 21 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

The club continue to run a campaign without much spotlight so far in the elite access division of English football, momentarily occupying 14th place in the table, with 36 points in 26 matches played. However, its phase is much better than its opponent, being for an incredible 8 games without knowing what to lose, but coach M. Bowen knows he has to win the game back to gain access to the next phase of the Fa Cup after drawing by 2-2 in front of his fans, promising to go with full force and strong will in this next duel.

Confirmed Lineup: S. Walker, O. Richards, T. Mcintyre, T. Howe, A. Rinomhota, M. Olise, A. Burley, J. Obita, G. McCleary, L. Boyé, D. Loader.
Coach: M. Bowen.

Betting suggestion:

We have two teams facing each other who need to show strength to advance to the next phase of the competition, the visitors need to score goals to advance in the championship anyway. Blackpool should not come thinking of a draw, so we should have a game of many goals, so we will succeed in our investment.
