Boro won 4 points in their opening 2 fixtures. The team battled to draw at The Den against Millwall and followed on Tuesday with a clean victory with 3-0 over Sheffield United. 3goals in the first half decided the outcome and the sides just waited for the rest of the game to pass.

Middlesbrough were a strong home side last year and will be looking to continue the trend. The team wants promotion and will have to win such games with ease. Still the team has a few absent players including Gastede, Ayala and McNair.

Birmingham barely survived last year and will be looking towards safer escape this time. The team opened up the season with an entertaining 2-2 draw against Norwich at home. The Blues went ahead twice but could not hold to their lead.

The team relied mostly on home games in the previous campaign and will have hard times on the road. Birmingham still has a decent team and will try to secure their faith earlier this campaign.

Middlesbrough vs Birmingham: Predictions
