LIVE: Chelsea v Reading FCBy Jonny Fordham
August 22, 2012
Reading and Chelsea have played 18 times in all competitions.
Royals have won just three of these meetings, drawing six and losing the other nine.
The last time these two met was at Stamford Bridge on January 30, 2008 in the Premier League. Michael Ballack’s 32nd-minute goal earned the host’s a 1-0 win.
It looks like it will take something of a miracle for Royals to get anything from the battle at the Bridge.
Roberto Di Matteo’s side ooze class and quality and it will be tough for Reading to keep the score down against the European champions. I think it will end 2-0 to Chelsea.
