Our prediction for this Championship match:
Derby County kick off the new Championship campaign with a match against Reading at their Pride Park. The Rams failed to impress in their Carabao Cup opener, but they eventually defeated Barrow on penalties. Former Manchester United star Wayne Rooney is still part of the team, but experienced attacker Martyn Waghorn will be the man to watch in the home team.
The Royals, on the other hand, aim to build on the EFL Cup triumph over Colchester. Reading, though, are not regarded as good travellers, and that is the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the Rams. In their last meeting in the English second tier Derby defeated Reading 2-1, and we believe that the history is going to repeat itself. Big-money signings Ovie Ejaria is likely to make his Championship debut with the Royals on Saturday.
