Our prediction for this Championship match:
Madejski Stadium will host Sunday’s football game between Reading and Barnsley, who sit in the opposite halves of the table after the season opener. Reading did well to kick off the season with a 2-0 win at Derby, with Barnsley suffering a 1-0 loss to Luton at home ground. The Royals aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, but they will have to do it without suspended attacker Yakou Meite, who was handed a three-match ban on the last day of the last season.
The Tykes, on the other hand, were more than fortunate not to suffer relegation to the League One last term, and, no doubt, the team’s main goal for the 2020/21 season is to secure yet another Championship survival. Anyhow, away win should not be considered as Reading impressed in the Pride Park showdown. Defender Benjamin Williams is likely to miss the game with injury for the visitors.
