Middlesbrough Preview – Can Boro make the most of home advantage here?

Chris Wilder did a fine job at Middlesbrough after taking over from Neil Warnock halfway through last season, almost taking Boro to the play-offs. They ran out of steam in the end, but Middlesbrough look a good bet to finish in the top six this term.

The North Yorkshire outfit were strong at home under Wilder last term, even though they did lose four league and cup fixtures in a row at the Riverside from March to April. Boro ended their 2021-22 home campaign with two-goal wins over both Cardiff City and Stoke City.

Our betting prediction:
Middlesbrough to win & both teams to score

(odds taken 1120 GMT, Friday 29 July)

The Riverside can be a tough place to visit these days, and Wilder’s Boro would love to get off to a winning start on home turf this weekend, especially against a possible direct rival for promotion. The home victory is priced at 5/4.

West Bromwich Albion Preview – Can the Baggies start with a positive result?

West Bromwich Albion were arguably the Championship’s biggest underachievers last season. Despite the club sitting in the play-off places at the time, Valerien Ismael was sacked and replaced by the experienced Steve Bruce in February.

Bruce took time to settle in, but there were signs of progress in the latter stages of the season, as the Baggies ended with six wins from their final 12 matches. On the final day of the campaign, Karlan Grant (2), Adam Reach and Matt Clarke netted in a thumping 4-0 home win over Barnsley.

Middlesbrough vs West Bromwich Albion Betting Advice

When these two clashed back in February, Middlesbrough came from behind to record a seventh straight home win. Jayson Molumby’s goal gave Albion the lead in the first period, but two goals in nine second-half minutes from Paddy McNair and Marcus Tavernier turned the game on its head.

The reverse fixture at The Hawthorns earlier in the season ended in a 1-1 stalemate. Josh Coburn gave Boro the lead, and Grady Diangana levelled for Albion in the second half.


Key Facts – Middlesbrough vs West Bromwich Albion Betting Tip
