Reading vs Bournemouth Predictions


Both of these teams are gunning for promotion to the Premier League and I’m expecting them to cancel each other out in a draw.

  • Reading have drawn 2 of their last 4 matches (English Championship).
  • Reading have failed to win in 4 of their last 8 home matches (English Championship).
  • Reading have failed to beat Bournemouth in their last 8 attempts (all competitions).
  • Bournemouth have drawn 2 of their last 5 away matches (English Championship).
  • Bournemouth have seen under 2.5 goals in 6 of their last 7 matches (English Championship).
  • Bournemouth have 1 win in their last 5 away matches (English Championship).

Head to Head


Bournemouth have 46 wins in this fixture compared to Reading’s 42. The two teams have also played out 25 draws.

Bournemouth won the most recent meeting 4-2 earlier in the season.

Reading Form


Reading have the task of ending an eight-game winless run against Bournemouth at the Madejski Stadium this weekend.

Reading are currently sat 5th in the Championship table after 25 matches played but have had a mixed bag of results in their last three matches. The Royals were knocked out of the FA Cup after losing 1-0 away to Luton, but bounced back with a comfortable 3-0 win at home to Coventry in the league.

Last time out, the Royals were held to a 0-0 draw by Preston in an uninspiring contest. They have also shown inconsistency at home of late, winning two and losing two of their last four at the Madejski.

Reading Team News & Injuries


Reading will be without George Puscas, Liam Moore, Yakou Meïtéand Felipe Araruna due to injury.

Bournemouth Form


Bournemouth are currently sat 6th in the Championship table despite going winless in each of their last three league matches.

The Cherries suffered a difficult week in January, starting with a 1-1 draw at home to Millwall. That point was followed by successive defeats as Jason Tindall’s team then lost to Luton and Derby by a 1-0 scoreline.

Bournemouth got back to winning ways in their last match though, beating Crawley Town 2-1 in the FA Cup. Jack Wilshere and Josh King scored as the Dorset side booked their place in the fifth round of the competition away to Burnley.

Bournemouth Team News & Injuries


Midfielder Jefferson Lerma is suspended and will miss out on Friday’s match, while winger Junior Stanislas is struggling with an ankle problem.
