Our prediction for this Championship match:
Norwich City will look to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Luton Town when they host Reading to their Carrow Road on Matchday 25. The Canaries suffered a dip in form, and, no doubt, they will give 100% to finish 2022 in style. As always, a man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Teemu Pukki, who scored his eighth goal of the season in a Boxing Day loss to Luton.
The Royals, on the other hand, aim to recover from a 3-2 loss to Reading, but given their shaky defence, we predict that Norwich City are going to return to winning ways in the Championship on Friday. As for the visiting side, both Moore and Tetek remain in the recovery room, while all Dann, Holmes, and Hutchinson are all major doubts. In their last meeting at the venue Norwich City defeated Reading 4-1, and we predict that history is going to repeat itself.
Highlighted Player (Aaron Ramsey):
Aaron Ramsey is a Welsh football player born on the 26th of December in Caerphilly. Ramsey started his football career playing for Cardiff City. After 2 seasons playing for Cardiff City Ramsey got transferred to Arsenal for a unknown transfer fee. After playing for a loan for Nottingham Forrest and Cardiff City Ramsey returned to Arsenal in 2011.
Aaron Ramsey made his debut for the Welsh national team in 2008 and is one of the youngest players in the history of Welsh football. Ramsey is currently one of the most talentful midfielders of his generation. Because of his dribbling skills, vision and great passes and being two-footed Ramsey is known for being a player that dominates the midfield.
Despite several injuries in his still young career Ramsey managed to win the FA cup and the Community Shield twice with Arsenal. Ramsey is called Rambo by his fans. Ramsey and Gareth Bale are the biggest strength of the Welsh national team which will play in the EURO 2016 for the first time in history.
Highlighted Team (Reading):
Reading FC is a professional football club that play in the Championship. The club was formed in 1871 and Madejski Stadium has been the home of Reading since 1998. The Royals used to play their home games at Elm Park in the past (1896 - 1998). Reading made it to the FA Cup semi-finals on two occasions (1927, 2015), but they have yet to win the prestigious trophy.
The likes of Robin Friday, Trevor Senior, Steve Death, Shaka Hislop, Phil Parkinson, Alf Messer, Jimmy Quinn, Michael Gilkes, Ronnie Blackman, Pavel Pogrebnyak and Martin Hicks are some of their more notable footballers. Aldershot Town were considered Reading’s fiercest rivals, but the Shots went out of business in 1992.
Seeing that Aldershot rejoined the league in 2008 it remains to be seen if the rivalry is going to be re-established in near future. Swindon Town and Oxford United are considered Reading’s big rivals as well.
