On 20th January in League 1, England's third-tier division, at 'DV' Stadium, 'Reading' will play against 'Wigan'. Let's examine the teams' standing and strive to make a decision that could boost our bankroll.

'Wigan'

The team has been bouncing between League 1 and the Championship for eight years. After winning the League 1 in the 2021/2022 season, 'Wigan' gained the right to play in England's Second Division, but couldn't perform up to their full potential, which led them to the 22nd spot, sending them back to where they started.

Due to financial issues, the team lost 8 points, so it will be a tad challenging for 'Wigan' to climb up the tournament table with such a lead over the rivals. Currently, they are at 18th place.

In the 22nd match of the season, 'Wigan' lost to 'Reading' away (0:2). In their next game, the team was narrowly defeated by 'Derby'. Later, 'Wigan' triumphed over 'Carlisle' at home (2:0). This was followed by a draw with 'Barnsley' (1:1), and in their last match, they drew with 'Northampton' (1:1).

'Reading'

The team has long been absent from League 1, and last season they finally dropped out of the Championship, finishing 23rd in the table.

The start of the season did not go well for the team; due to financial problems, the club lost 4 points, leaving them in 21st place. In the 21st round, the squad tied with 'Lincoln' (1:1). In the following round, they beat 'Wigan' (2:0). This was followed by a draw with 'Peterborough United' (2:2), another draw with 'Cheltenham' (2:2), and in their last match, they triumphed over 'Exeter City' (3:2).

Head-to-Head

The last face-off between 'Reading' and 'Wigan' was on 23rd December 2023. That match ended in a home victory for 'Reading' (2:0).

Prediction

In this battle, I would suggest betting on a victory by the hosts. Both teams lost points at the start of the season due to financial troubles, which affected their position in the tournament table. However, 'Reading' is currently in a more depressed state, as the team's fans are lashing out against the club's management. Due to the pressure from their fans, I believe 'Reading' is set to encounter more setbacks.

Total Prediction

I believe the team is poised to deliver in terms of goals, hence I suggest betting on a total over 2.5.
