Watford vs Middlesbrough Predictions & Match Preview

Watford vs Middlesbrough Championship Prediction by LeagueLane

Watford vs Middlesbrough
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 30 August 2022
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Vicarge Road.

Middlesbrough follow an inconsistent form to enter their next Championship fixture. A 2-1 win against Swansea helped them to pass the past. They will try their best to forget the last season because the seventh-place finish did not secure them a place in the Championship play offs.

Going on, they started off winless this season. Their dismal form at the beginning of the season is much displeasing. The past season saw their defensive side leaking goals in huge numbers. They have continued the same and are still struggling with their defense.

Meanwhile, Watford had a season to forget in the previous, as they had finished in the bottom in English top-flight, and thus got demoted to the second division.

Watford opened up with unbeaten outcomes displaying their desperation of losing a spot in the previous season. But, they failed to maintain it further as they are currently on a winless run in the campaign.

However, their form in front of their home crowd has been somewhat better when comparing their overall recordings lately. Out of the three games they played at home, two ended up positive while the other failed to evade a negative.

By the looks of things, we expect an interesting encounter between the two at Vicarge Road this Tuesday in gameweek 7 of Championship fixtures.

Watford vs Middlesbrough Head-to-head (h2h)

  • It’s been a decade since the visitors have delivered a victory at this stadium.

Watford vs Middlesbrough Prediction

Middlesbrough lost 1-0 on the road the last fixture against Reading. They are on a three-game winless run, and two of these were losses.

On the other hand, Watford lost 2-3 against QPR the last time at home. However, they are unbeaten in three of the past five overall home matches, and two of these were victories. And they own a good head to head form against Middlesbrough at this venue.

Judging these observations, expect a winning performance from Watford this weekend.
