Our prediction for this Championship match:
All eyes will be on Madejski Stadium when Reading and Norwich City face each other in the Championship derby. The Royals have been producing splendid displays under Veljko Paunovic, and thanks to a hard-fought 1-0 win over QPR they retained their spot in top six. Reading are eyeing their seventh home win of the season, but the game against the league leaders will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts.
Norwich City’s injury list is getting shorter week by week, and the Canaries seem to be at the top of their game ahead of the trip to Berkshire. Anyhow, away win should be considered as Reading will be without important trio Lukas Joao – Yakou Meite – Omar Richards in the upcoming festive fixtures. A man to watch in the away team will be Finland attacker Pukki, who scored a brace in a 2-1 win over Blackburn at the weekend.
