Coventry City hosts Reading in round 9 of the English Championship. The match will be played on Friday, October 30th at St. Andrew's Stadium (Birmingham)
The Sky Blues stably played in the Premier League until 2001. Then there was a recession, which only became deeper. The stay in League 2 was the peak, but, fortunately, Coventry City spent only one season at the level of the English fourth division. In the last season, the team managed to win League 1, which allowed it to return to the Championship. Coventry has not played here since 2012. Of course, it is very difficult for Mark Robins' men. Yes, there are Wycombe and Sheffield Wednesday with its withdrawal of points. However, there is one more place in the relegation zone, and it may well go to the newcomer. Coventry scores little and concedes a lot, so most of the matches, as expected, ended in defeats. The last round was also lost to Middlesbrough (0:2).

The Royals have been promoted to the Premier League more than once. But lately they have had a reputation of a rather modest middle peasant in the Championship. Only 14th place at the end of the 2019/2020 season was another confirmation of this. Everything changed after the management appointed a new coach, Veljko Paunovic. The 43-year-old Serb, a former striker who once played in Rubin Kazan, previously worked with the youth teams of the United States and Chicago Fire. It is surprising how Reading started in the new season, simply leaving behind all possible pursuers. Colored strikers Lukas João and Yakou Meite score a lot, and there is a talented Romanian Puskas. But the monolithic defense led by the Brazilian goalkeeper Rafael Cabral (remembered for his performances in Sampdoria and Napoli) looks no less good- he has already collected a lot of clean sheets. Truth be told, Blackburn scored in the home match against Reading, but the visitors hammered three goals before the 18th minute, and the game ended in their 4-2 victory.
The last time Coventry won was back in 2005. Since then, the clubs have played 10 head-to-head matches. Reading won five times, and there was the same number of draws. However, the teams have not met since 2012. Coventry must try to add because relegation is very close. However, Reading is very good now. We will bet on the visitors’ victory with a zero handicap.
Prediction for the match: Reading to win with 0.0 handicap
