Saturday 18th April. Reading-vs-Arsenal. Wembley
History suggests the game will produce goals.
There have been a total of 24 goals in the last three meetings between the two sides. However, it will take a major upset for Reading to reach the final as Arsene Wenger’s side have won each of the last 12 fixtures these teams have played.
Arsenal are in the midst of their best run of form in the league since 2004. Reading on the other hand, are without a win since their quarter-final replay against Bradford City. In fact, the Royals have won just two of their last 13 Championship games.
Wenger will be hoping to continue an impressive semi-final record, as he has won six of his nine semis to date.
Arsenal will still be without Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mikel Arteta. But Jack Wilshere, Abou Diaby and Mathieu Debuchy are all back and in contention.
Wojciech Szczesny will start in goal, and Danny Welbeck may displace Olivier Giroud at centre-forward after his winner in the last round at Old Trafford.
Here is how Wenger is expected to line-up his side against Reading.
With this line-up, coupled with teams current run of form, it is expected that Arsenal should get a comfortable 3-1 victory at Wembley.
