Boro have thus returned to the winning ways after two games without one, where they held Leeds to a goalless draw on the road and suffered a 1-0 loss at Norwich, putting on another very solid display at home. They’ve bagged six wins in six home outings this term and it does feel Swans will have troubles at Riverside Stadium as well.

Swansea had problems adjusting to life in Championship and sit in the mid-table early on, with a very unpredictable spell of form behind them. They’ve seen a disappointing 1-0 loss at Stoke on Tuesday and this was their third loss in last five outings, surely seeing Graham Potter in the hot seat already. His men have been scoring goals on the road regularly, though, and will surely want to build on such records at Riverside too.

Middlesbrough vs Swansea: Head-to-head

  • The sides have last met in Premier League in 2016/17, where Boro bagged four points in two head-to-head clashes.
  • Swansea had bagged three wins in a row beforehand and would love to return to such a streak at such a crucial time.
  • We’ve gotten used to thrilling clashes at this ground, with three or more goals in both of their last two matchups here.

Middlesbrough vs Swansea: Prediction

We will now back Middlesbrough to turn another such game their way and we’ll go for a Home win at 1.72, which seems great value despite the visitors’ motivation to show off the character and catch up with the league’s top six early in the new campaign.

However, we do feel Swans will put on a solid challenge and find the net too, as we back a YES on Both teams to score at 2.10. We’ll surely see Boro going strong forward but this could see more open spaces at the back and we now hope to see the visitors make it count, despite going for a home win on the day.

Middlesbrough vs Swansea: Bet Tips

  • Home win @ 1.75 (3/4).
  • Both teams to score YES @ 2.10 (11/10).
