Watford vs Reading Preview and Prediction 2021

Watford vs Reading predictions for Friday night’s Championship clash at Vicarage Road. Can the hosts move one step closer to a Premier League return by beating the Royals? Read on for our free Championship predictions and betting tips.

Watford have lost just one of their last 12 league matches, winning ten.

The Hornets have won their last six at home and have posted 16 victories from 20 starts at Vicarage Road this season.

Reading have won just one of their last five (D3, L1) and one of their last five away trips (D2, L2).

Hornets to move a step closer against Reading

Reading returned to winning ways in convincing fashion on Easter Monday, but the Royals should come up short this Friday night against a Watford side on the brink of promotion.

Goals from Michael Olise, George Puskas and Lucas Joao sealed a 3-1 success over Derby at the Madejski to keep Reading in the top six, though Veljko Paunovic’s side are clinging on with seventh placed Bournemouth just a point behind with a game in hand.

The Royals could well drop out of the Play-Off positions this weekend and we don’t expect them to get anything at Vicarage Road after winning just one of their last five away trips.

Watford were held to a 1-1 draw away to Middlesbrough on Monday, but that result was no disgrace and the Hornets have now lost just one of their last dozen league outings, winning ten.

A combination of their fine form and recent slumps from Brentford and Swansea has seen Xisco’s charges move nine and ten points clear of their automatic promotion rivals and their Premier League return appears all but sealed.

Watford have won their last six on home turf and have been a dominant force at Vicarage Road throughout the campaign, winning 16 from 20 in total (D2, L2).

The hosts have also kept five clean sheets from their last six here, so we’re confidently backing another Watford win this Friday alongside a 2-0 correct score prediction.
