Beşiktaş vs Reading
Tuesday 17th July, 6pm BST
Pre-season friendly
Graz, Austria

After flying out on Sunday morning, Paul Clement and his Reading side got straight to work as they continue to build up their match fitness ahead of the new season.

A goalless draw against newly-promoted Fulham at the weekend showed signs of progress from the Royals, as the quality of opposition increases over the course of pre-season.

The next test for Clement's men will be against Turkish giants Beşiktaş over in Graz, as the squad hope to put their early work in Bad Erlach to the test.

The majority of the first team squad have travelled to Austria for this pre-season tour, with plenty of training sessions to run alongside their match schedule.

Beşiktaş have plenty of quality in their squad, appearing regularly in the Champions League and Europa League most seasons. If you would like to find out more about tonight's opponents, you can catch up by reading our profile by clicking here.
