Our prediction for this match:
Select Car Leasing Stadium will host Saturday’s friendly between Reading and Crystal Palace. The Royals head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Charlton where the Red Robins scored a late equalizer. Head coach Veljko Paunovic is likely to test a couple of trialists once again, while both Camara and Melvin-Lambert are pushing for a start. The Eagles, on the other hand, played out a 2-2 draw with Charlton in their last league match.
The capital club aim to get back on course in pre-season, and seeing that Veljko Paunovic is likely to stick to his rotation policy, we are tempted to put our money on the Premier League side. Ghana international Jeffrey Schlupp is widely expected to return to the starting XI after coming as a substitute in the last warm-up game. When the two teams met in a friendly three years ago Crystal Palace crushed Reading 4-0.
