Middlesbrough vs Bristol City
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 14 August 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET,
Venue: Riverside Stadium (Middlesbrough).
Middlesbrough has seen some changes with Neil Warnock at their helm. The Boro will hope his tactics to work out them in delivering a win at home in the next clash. They will lock horns with Bristol City on Saturday at Riverside Stadium in the England Championship 2021/22 season.
The host struggled to get a place in the top ten of the league table last term. The Boro has lost only one of their recent five fixtures in the campaign. They will return home on the back of a 1-1 draw on the road with Fulham last time out in the opening match of the Championship this term.
In the meantime, Bristol City struggled in the Championship last season and looks like they might continue that streak in the 2021/22 term. The visitor has been winless in their last 11 league clashes with five draws in it, including the 1-1 draw at home with Blackpool in the last Championship fixture.
Since the away team has struggled in their opening match, it seems as if they haven’t got back from the dip in form from last season. This opens the door for the host to take advantage of the opponent’s shaky defense in the middle during the weekend clash.
Middlesbrough vs Bristol City Head-to-head (h2h)
- The visitor has recorded three of the last five overall wins.
- Both teams have scored in three of the recent five fixtures.
- Only one of their last 12 meetings has ended in a draw.
- Their previous encounter gave a 1-3 away win for the Boro.
- The host has won only one of their last ten clashes at home.
Middlesbrough vs Bristol City Prediction
Middlesbrough has had a struggle facing Bristol City at this venue in recent h2h history. The host has been winless in nine out of ten home h2h clashes with the Robins.
But the host might see a change in that streak with their current form in the league. Besides, Bristol City is on poor form in the campaign as of late.
As such, the home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters in the encounter.
