Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Madejski Stadium will host Saturday’s FA Cup game between Reading and Cardiff City, who face each other in the last 32 of the prestigious competition. The Royals were on top of their game in December, but they failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Millwall at the weekend. Anyhow, Reading, who outplayed Blackpool 2-0 in the FA Cup round 3 replay, are surely capable of matching the Bluebirds on home soil.
Cardiff City, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from an embarrassing 6-1 loss to Queens Park Rangers, with the team sharing the spoils with Swansea City and Birmingham City in the previous two league fixtures. Since only three points separate the two teams in the Championship standings, we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. You should know that Reading and Cardiff City shared the spoils in three of their last six meetings in all competitions.
