Date: 27th December 2022
Kickoff: 17:15 UK / 18:15 CET
Venue: Madejski Stadium
Tuesday’s clash will see two sides who are level on 32 points after 23 games face each other. It would be the third meeting between these two sides in 2022, with the last encounter ending in a 3-2 win for Swansea, while the other encounter ended in a 4-4 draw.
Last week, Reading had the chance to win three league games in a row for the second time this season, but failed to do so as they were beaten 3-2 by Birmingham. That means Paul Ince’s men have conceded an average of 1.43 goals per game in their last seven matches, which is something that will have to change if they want to get back to winning ways on their own turf on Tuesday afternoon.
On the other hand, Swansea played out a 3-3 draw with Coventry last weekend, which means they have won just one of their last six league games. Although wins have been hard to come by for Russell Martin’s men, they have been very difficult to beat. They have managed a total of eight draws this season (the second most in the league), so there is a high chance of Tuesday’s game ending in a draw.
