Reading v Southampton Football Match – 06.04.2013 – Premier League Preview, Prediction, Squad
Reading v Southampton Football Match will be played on 06.04.2013 at Madejski Stadium (Reading) for a Premier League match. M. Jones will be the referee for this match.
Reading who got promoted to the Premier League this season, is currently in the last position of the Premier League table (Position 20) with 23 points and joint with Queens Park Rangers who have the same points but in 19th position. They are fighting for relegation and will desperately need the points to get out of this relegation zone. In January, Reading actually had 6 unbeaten matches in a row with 5 wins a 1 draw but after that they lost 7 matches in a row with most of their matches playing away. They recently lost to Arsenal 4-1 playing away and will be looking to keep those results behind them and will be desperately looking for more points to stay in the Premier League for next season.
Southampton are also a newly promoted team to the Premier League this season. They are currently in 12th position with 34 points. Level with Stoke City and Norwich City on points, but they are below them. Southampton will also be looking for more points, in case they fall into the relegation zone but this is quite unlikely as there are many teams who are below them. Their season has been quite patchy but in their last 2 matches, they managed to beat 2 top sides playing at home, Liverpool 3-1 and Chelsea 2-1.
I predict Southampton will win this match as I don’t see Reading winning this. I believe this match will be tough though, as most teams fighting for relegation will have nothing to lose and will be trying their best to get the points. Southampton has had surprising results lately and should win this match.
The match will begin on April 6, 2013 12:45 PM BST
Match Prediction: Southampton Win. Correct Score 1 – 3
