Reading goalkeeper Adam Federici feels that his side have a chance of beating Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal at Wembley on Saturday.
The Royals face in-form Arsenal at 5:20pm this upcoming Saturday in the semi-final of the FA Cup, in what is regarded as a David v Goliath fixture.
However, Federici feels that Reading have what it takes to match Arsenal in the big match on the weekend.
Speaking to the Standard, Federici said: “This time I think all the pressure is on Arsenal, we can go out, enjoy the day and play good football. Everyone knows we’re the underdogs so we have nothing to lose and we look forward to that. We know we have a chance, even if it’s small.
“I love the FA Cup, any road to Wembley is a great competition. It’s great for Reading fans too, our first time in the semis for 88 years. I hope they enjoy the day and we can put on a show for them as well.”
The Royals have beaten a number of Championship sides to reach the last four of this competition, having beaten the likes of Huddersfield, Cardiff City, Derby County and League One side Bradford City.
Steve Clarke’s side have endured a pretty abysmal season in the Sky Bet Championship, with the outfit currently sat in 18th place in the league.
A win on Saturday would undoubtedly be the biggest moment in the history of the Berkshire club.
