Competition: League Cup

Market: Watford win

Odds: 21/20 @ Bet 365

After enjoying a very eye-catching start to the new Premier League campaign, a revitalized Watford side will travel to the Madejski Stadium for Wednesday’s League Cup second leg.

Starting with Wednesdays hosts, although former Swansea boss Paul Clement helped Reading to avoid the drop last season, it has been a difficult start for the Royals. Although they might be coming off the back of draws against both Aston Villa and Blackburn, Reading were often out played and will be glad to have left with a point. Yet to win any of their opening five Championship matches, only their goal difference keeps them off of bottom spot. With just one win at the Madejski since April, they have also only recorded two clean sheets in their last 11 competitive matches.

As for Javi Garcia’s Hornets, while they may have struggled to adjust to their new boss at the back end of last season, Watford have been the surprise package at the start of the new campaign. Coming off the back of a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace last weekend, Watford are one of just three teams to win their opening three Premier League matches. Now sat third in the table the Hornets have also scored six in their last three and will fancy their chances of putting in another impressive performance on Wednesday night.
