I see this very similar to the last round game between Palace and Villa, where we took the "over" and the match developed into something of an end to end shootout. We might be fortunate enough to watch another today, Villa will surely come and attack at every opportunity and will fancy their changes against a Championship defence that might stuggle to deal with their pace on the break.

Under Brian McDermott, Reading have developed a far more expansive style and scored 17 in their last 7. After winning at Liverpool and WBA in earlier rounds, they will not fear a replay, but would surely prefer to put this one to bed at the first attempt, if only on the basis that lightning doesn't strike twice or even a third time ! They will be aware that Villa have already conceded two to Burnley and Brighton, plus four to Palace and Blackburn in 2010 and those teams are hardly the most prolific goalscorers in their respective leagues. The visitors are battling for a top four spot and still have five EPL fixtures to play this month, last thing they need is a replay. Two potent teams both looking to win, I can hear the MJ soundtrack playing to this one !

"Over" 2.75 goals 2.28 Sbobet.

Good Luck.
