Middlesbrough vs Swansea City
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 2 December 2020
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Riverside Stadium.
The Swans are one of the most consistent teams in the competition at the moment, and are currently placed fourth in the table. They are also just lagging by two points behind the toppers, and should they keep this form going on, the team could make a shot at one of the top-three spots shortly.
They also do have a great h2h record against this opponent recently, and do note that the Boro are going through a struggling run at the moment.
Likely, expect Swansea to dominate proceedings this Wednesday at the Riverside Stadium.
However, understand that Neil Warnock’s men have a good run going on at home, whereas their counterparts have had some struggles on the road. Moreover, the Boro will be desperate to put an end to their dismal streak as well.
As such, expect goals to come from both teams at the Riverside Stadium.
Middlesbrough vs Swansea: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Steve Cooper’s men are on a three-game winning run against this opponent.
- They had scored three or more goals in all three fixtures.

Middlesbrough vs Swansea City: Prediction
Warnock’s men lost 3-2 on the road the last match-day, against Huddersfield. In the meantime, the Swans recorded a 0-1 win at home the past game week, against Nottingham Forest.
Going on, Cooper’s men were unbeaten in 12 of their former 14 overall match-ups, and one of their two losses during this stretch had come against the toppers of the table. And on the road, they have lost just once in the past three-month period.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in four of their preceding five games, and they had lost two of their preceding three fixtures as well.
In addition, Cooper’s men had won the last three h2h meetings against this rival, and had scored nine goals in the process.
As such, expect Swansea to have the upper hand this Wednesday, and avoid the loss at any cost.
Be that as it may, note that the Boro had won three of their preceding four appearances at home, and were unbeaten in six of their last seven such match-ups as well. Also, their loss in the period had come against toppers, Norwich.
Count on them to make something out of their home game, and score at least once.
