Watford have been in a poor shape since December, going winless in 5 Premier League games with 4 defeats and a draw. They have managed only 2 Premier League wins since November having drawn once and lost 7.

However the Hornets went home with a smile in the FA Cup as they defeated Burton Albion 2-0 at home. They will hope to build on this win as they face Boro this weekend.

On the other hand, Boro’s in this New Year are still without a stain, as they are unbeaten in their 2 games so far with a draw and a win. Also Middlesbrough are yet to concede a goal this year having drawn goalless in the Premier League and defeated Sheffield Wednesday 3-0 in FA Cup.

Middlesbrough are still close to the drop zone, they are in 26th spot with 19 points, 4 points above 18th placed Sunderland. They seriously need a win in this game to ensure their safety in the coming weeks.

Watford vs Middlesbrough: Head to Head Statistics

  • Watford have been the better team in their previous few meetings, having won 9 games, drawn 6 and lost 6 to Boro.
  • The Hornets have also been unbeaten in their last 6 meetings, they have won 4 and draw twice.
  • Watford have won 6 of their meetings at Vicarage Road against Boro, they have lost twice and drawn twice.

Watford vs Middlesbrough: Prediction

Both teams have been in a bad shape since November, losing most of their games. However, Middlesbrough’s away games is a thing of worry to the fans, as they have won just once on the road this season. They are win-less in their last 10 away games in all competitions with 5 defeats and 5 draws.

Despite the Hornets bad form, we don’t see them losing this game. We expect a win from the Hornets but it won’t be an easy one. Also we expect both teams to get on the score sheet.
