THE MATCH PREDICTION Man Utd - Reading 05.01 13:30

Total over 2.5

The third round of the FA Cup between Manchester United and Reading kicks off on 5 January at 13.30 CET at Old Trafford. Please, check our free forecast and the bet on the fixture below.

Manchester United squad

Ole Gunnar Solskjær has already proved his ambitions having been appointed as caretaker manager. The Red Devils have won four consecutive games which has not happened for ages. However, each of Cardiff, Huddersfield and Bournemouth scored a goal and this is certainly what the coaching staff have to think over to improve the defense line performance. The attacking line are already excellent as they have scored fourteen goals during the four games.
MU have moved very close to the top 5 and are with a win distance from Arsenal. All they need to do is to keep on winning and their next league game is at Tottenham on 13 January. The outcome of the fixture is rather unpredictable.

Reading squad

The Royals are in a deep crisis and even the change of the manager has not made its influence so far. They are still the twenty-third-placed team in the Championship and have been thrashed 4-1 by Swansea on their home ground in the recent game. Callum Hariott scored the only goal and Danny Loader assisted him.
Reading combine draws and losses in away games and the only 3-2 victory over Preston since March 2018 is a sole exception. prediction

The teams have had ten face-to-face encounters since 2006. Reading have made only two draws (1-1, 0-0) with no wins. Note that two years ago Man. United entertained Reading in the third round of the FA Cup at Old Trafford. The guests were 4-0 thrashed. Rooney scored the first goal, then it was Martial’s turn and finally Rashford scored twice.
We bet on Total over 2.5 at 1.42.
