Match Summary

One to Watch: Teemu Pukki

Norwich City signed Teemu Pukki on a free transfer in June, with the striker penning a three-year contract at Carrow Road following his release from Brondby, where he had scored 67 times over the course of four seasons.

Pukki has already registered three Championship goals for Norwich this season, and scored the only goal of the match as the Canaries recorded an impressive 1-0 win over Middlesbrough on Saturday afternoon.

The 28-year-old will again lead the Norwich line in this match, and there is no question that he will fancy his chances of harming the home side. Pukki is 13/2 in the first goalscorer market with bet365, which should be considered as part of the best football betting tips.

Reading vs Norwich City Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Reading manager Paul Clement is looking for back-to-back wins against Norwich on Wednesday night

Reading will attempt to make it back-to-back Championship wins when they welcome Norwich City to the Madejski Stadium on Wednesday night. Paul Clement’s side won 3-2 at Preston North End on Saturday, but that was their first victory of the season and they remain in the relegation zone. Norwich, meanwhile, will enter this match off the back of a 1-0 win over promotion hopefuls Middlesbrough at the weekend, with that result moving the Canaries into 16th position in the table on eight points.

Reading are 21/10 to record an important win on home soil. As mentioned above in this Championship preview, the Royals beat Preston at the weekend, but are still in the relegation zone on five points. It has not been the best of starts to the season, but they have only actually lost one of their last four in the league, and picked up a point at Aston Villa during that run. Reading have lost their last three Championship fixtures with Norwich, however, conceding 12 times in the process, which is important to note when considering the potential football score predictions.

Norwich are 11/8 to claim an away success on Wednesday night. The Canaries have collected eight points from their seven league games this season to sit in 16th position, with their second victory of the campaign arriving against Middlesbrough at the weekend. As mentioned above in this Championship preview, Daniel Farke’s side have won their last three Championship games against Reading, including a 2-1 victory in the corresponding match last term. That said, Norwich are yet to win on their travels in the league this season, which should be considered when reviewing our Championship predictions.

The draw is 11/5, but it is important to note that just one of the last nine league matches between the two teams has finished level. That draw occurred at the home of Reading during the 2012-13 Premier League campaign, and there has been a winner in each of their seven meetings since then. Reading have been poor in front of their own supporters this term, losing all three matches. However, as mentioned, Norwich have struggled on their travels at the start of the 2018-19 campaign.

Predicted Score: Reading 1 - 1 Norwich City
