Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough approaches the match with Birmingham after two consecutive defeats. First, the team lost to Tottenham (1:2) away in the FA Cup, and then to Fulham (0:1) in the championship. Middlesbrough moved away from the relegation zone. Now the team is in 17th position in the standings and is ten points ahead of the three worst teams in the division.

The Birmingham Club is just one position lower than its future rival and scored only one point less. In the last away match, they away defeated Luton (2-1). At the same time, in the last away matches, Birmingham has generally been playing successfully. For the previous six guest meetings, the team lost only to Hull City (0:3).

Middlesbrough vs Birmingham City Prediction

Birmingham as a whole unsuccessfully play against Middlesbrough, which lost in six of the previous ten in-person matches, and in the last five on the Borough field earned only one point. Now Middlesbrough successfully plays at home. Their matches are not highly effective, and given the tight schedule, teams are unlikely to play open football.
