The Championship tie at Riverside Stadium on Tuesday sees hosts Middlesbrough playing against opponents West Bromwich Albion.
Middlesbrough will be hoping to return to winning ways here after the 2-1 Championship losing effort in their last game against Bristol City. It’s not been often in recent games that Middlesbrough have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. It will be a concern for them that Middlesbrough have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, giving up 7 goals on the way. Such a trend won’t necessarily be carried forward into this match, of course.
After tasting defeat last time out to Luton Town in Championship competition, West Bromwich Albion and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here. The trend of at least one side getting a clean sheet in games involving West Bromwich Albion has been apparent of late. Looking at their last six meetings reveals that it’s occurred 6 times. During those clashes, opposing sides have hit a goal aggregate of 8 while West Bromwich Albion have scored 3. Coming into this clash, West Bromwich Albion are without a win away from home in their last 6 league games.
West Bromwich have been very poor of late and have picked up just one point from their last seven games against Middlesbrough. The 1X2 first odds is 2.10-3.40-3.40, which means the home team. Middlesbrough should win this game.
