The English Championship returns today with an opening game between Reading and Derby. The hosts from Reading enter this game as underdog, since the team couldn't win a single match from the 6 friendlies they have played in the preseason, which only comes to show that there’s a crisis in the team. The hosts ended the official season with 5 winless games in a row, which makes the total of 11 winless games!
Meanwhile, Derby made a huge step forward when signed Frank Lampard as their manager. He’s not an experienced manager, however his status of a legend and great row model will definitely have an impact over his team. The visitors were very close to a promotion last season, but missed their golden ticket in the playoff. Furthermore, Derby had a far better preseason and has won 4 out of their 5 friendly games. Confidence seems high in the Derby camp and with a huge fan base, we think they will be a force to be reckoned with this season.
Backing up Derby looks like a great choice for us giving all the above arguments we gave. Reading will definitely not want to begin the season with a home defeat, but Derby will be just too strong for them in our opinion.
