Reading host Plymouth Argyle at Madejski Stadium in the first round of the EFL Cup.
We should mention Reading had a poor last season as they occupied 17th spot with 52 points earned in the Sky Bet Championship. This summer the hosts played 6 friendly matches recording 3 wins, 1 draw and 2 defeats. However, Reading had a successful start of the new 2016/17 season as they managed to beat Preston North End (1:0) in the first round and showed convincing performance.

Plymouth Argyle participate in the Football League Two and they were very close to promote to the Championship last season. Plymouth Argyle took 5th spot, earned 81 points with 72:46 goal difference and proceeded to the playoffs. Although they managed to past Portsmouth in the semifinals (3:2 on agg), they were beaten by Wimbledon (0:2) in the final and remained in the League Two. During their preseason this summer Plymouth Argyle won 3 games and tied 1 with 11:3 goal difference. Unfortunately for them, they were thrashed by Luton Town in the first round of the season.
Reading played Plymouth in 2010. Reading will play at home, they are in the higher tier and showed solid performance in the first competitive game of the season unlike their opponents. We are sticking with the hosts.
Prediction for the match: Reading to win.
