Worth Mentioning

The outcome of the most recent encounter between Norwich City and Reading was a 1:1 stalemate. The match went down on the 4th of October 2022. In the course of the last 10 meetings, performing at home did not play any major role in determining the outcomes, considering the 5 home victories and 3 away triumphs. Only 2 of the most recent 10 clashes resulted in a draw. Out of the last five games, four yielded over 2.5 goals and five witnessed goals scored at both ends of the field. Over that stretch of time Reading did not succeed in keeping any clean sheets and the Canaries did not manage to limit their rivals from scoring in all matches. From a statistical point of view, the recent five encounters tend to produce an average of 3.40 goals.
