Marcelo Bielsa's side are edging closer to a Premier League place but the resurgent Royals should have enough to find the net at the Madejski Stadium

Norwich, Leeds and Sheffield United look set to battle it out for the two automatic promotion places in the Championship.

Marcelo Bielsa's men have won four of their last five league games and are 8/11 (1.73) favourites for another win as they head to the Madejski Stadium on Tuesday.

Reading have found some form of late with just one defeat in their previous eight outings in this competition, so such a short price about Leeds doesn't make much appeal despite their standing in the second tier.

Back-to-back wins over Ipswich and Wigan mean the hosts are targeting a hat-trick of victories for the first time this season. 888Sport offer 18/5 (4.60) about another win here with the draw priced at 11/4 (3.75).

Instead, both teams to score looks a solid option at 10/13 (1.77) with the same firm. Reading's recent turnaround has seen this selection land in four of their last five games and Leeds rarely keep things tight on their travels.

The Whites have played 18 times away from Elland Road in the league so far and conceded in 13 of them. Notably, in nine trips to teams currently ranked 13th or lower in the Championship, Leeds have secured only one clean sheet.

Reading v Leeds United Betting Preview

Despite their recent upturn in form Reading are far from clear of trouble, sitting only three points above the drop zone so there should be no complacency from the hosts - especially having scored twice in the dying minutes to secure their most recent victory on Saturday.

Jose Manuel Gomes’ side have only failed to score in five Championship games in front of their own fans this season and on that basis 10/13 (1.77) appears big enough to back goals galore.

888Sport are a best price of 13/5 (3.60) about an away win with both teams scoring and that could be worth a small interest for those seeking bigger potential returns from this game.
