Reading vs Derby Match Preview, Soccer Prediction, and Betting Tips
This season’s EFL campaign starts with one of the most popular stories of the summer as Frank Lampard makes his professional managerial debut with Derby County. The Chelsea legend was appointed by the regular promotion chasers this summer and he has implemented an impressive attacking style of play as well as brought in some impressive recruits, would he start with a win at a Reading side that looks like they are on their way down even before a ball is kicked?
While Derby have made some smart acquisition with the likes of Harry Wilson and Jack Marriot joining them, Paul Clement has had almost no help in building his Reading team for the season ahead, and he would now be looking at John Oshea and Paul McShane to help his side stay up, but they look even poorer in quality than they were when they finished 20th in the league last season.
Reading only beat two teams inside the top ten last season, and they face a Derby team that has been in hot form throughout the preseason, earning a draw in this game would be a major positive for the home side.
