Derby vs Middlesbrough
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 13 February 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Pride Park (Derby).

Derby failed to hold on to their three-game winning streak in the campaign. They broke their winning run with a 3-0 loss on the road to the likes of Rotherham. This put them back in the relegation zone on the table as it stands this season.

Winless in the last four matches in the championship, Middlesbrough is also in a tough spot in the upcoming match. Three of their last four matches have ended in a defeat, including a 1-4 loss at home against Brentford in the last league clash.

Derby vs Middlesbrough Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Three of their recent five matches have ended in a draw.
  • Their previous encounter gave a 3-0 home win for the Boro.
  • The Boro has recorded three of the last five overall wins.
  • Both teams have scored in three of their recent five fixtures.
  • The Rams have only one win in their past six meetings.

Derby vs Middlesbrough Prediction

In terms of goals, it has to be noted that Derby has scored only 17 goals in their 27 league appearances so far this season. They had a three-game winning streak and all of them came with a 1-0 scoreline, which suggests that the goals will be scarce from the host.

Conceding an average of 1 goal per match has not stopped Middlesbrough from scoring. The away team has slotted in 31 goals in their 28 attempts this term until now. Hence, the visitor is closer to creating more chances in the game.

Based on these stats, the tip for no BTTS will probably be a suitable option for the goals area in the encounter. Regarding both teams scoring averages, we can expect a single goal in ninety minutes. Besides, the double chance favoring Middlesbrough will probably be the best bet for the punters.

The Boro has a better position in the league, and their recent dip in form will not affect their morale against the home team. The chances of a draw also prevail as three of their last five h2h meetings between these two sides had that result in each by the final whistle.
