📊 Form Guide

Middlesbrough
Middlesbrough
WWWLWL

Middlesbrough will be wanting a better result here following the 2-0 Championship loss in their previous game against Sunderland.

In that game, Middlesbrough had 38% possession and 14 attempts at goal with 6 of them on target. At the other end, Sunderland had 17 shots on goal with 6 of them on target. Ross Stewart (51') and Amad Diallo (81') scored for Sunderland.

It has not been often in recent times where Middlesbrough haven’t conceded. The reality is that Middlesbrough have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, shipping 10 goals along the way. It will be interesting to see if that trend will be sustained in this game.

Analysis of their past results shows that Middlesbrough:

  • haven't beaten Watford in their last 10 league games.
  • are undefeated in their previous 5 home league matches.

In their previous game, Watford drew 1-1 in the Championship tie with Rotherham United.

In that game, Watford had 59% possession and 18 shots at goal with 5 of them on target. The only player to score for Watford was João Ferreira (53'). At the other end, Rotherham United had 12 attempts at goal with 5 of them on target. Shane Ferguson (20') was the scorer for Rotherham United.

Over the course of 5 of the past 6 clashes featuring Watford, a comparatively low number of goals have been struck between them and their opponents. The overall average number of goals per game in that period is a paltry 2.17, with the number of goals averaged by The Hornets standing at 0.67.

Coming into this contest, Watford remain undefeated by Middlesbrough when having played them away from home in the previous 5 league games. A very decent away record against them.

🤜🤛 Head to head

A review of their past head to head meetings stretching back to 06/04/2015 tells us that these encounters have not been good ones for Middlesbrough. They have not managed to register any wins at all while Watford have just been stronger than them, winning in 67% of those matches played.

A combined total of 9 goals were yielded between them in these games, with 2 of them for The Boro and 7 being from The Hornets. That is an average goals per game value of 1.5.

The last league fixture featuring these sides was Championship match day 7 on 30/08/2022 when the final score was Watford 2-1 Middlesbrough.

That time, Watford had 50% possession and 14 shots at goal with 4 of them on target. The goalscorers were Ismaïla Sarr (24') and Vakoun Issouf Bayo (93').

Middlesbrough had 14 shots at goal with 3 on target. Rodrigo Muniz (4') was the scorer.

The referee was Chris Kavanagh.

📰 Team News: Middlesbrough

The Middlesbrough boss Michael Carrick has zero fitness concerns at all before this clash owing to a fully healthy group to pick from.

📰 Team News: Watford

Watford boss Slaven Bilić has multiple availability issues to deal with. Imrân Louza (Ankle Injury), Tom Cleverley (Achilles tendon problems) and João Pedro (Ankle Injury) can’t be considered.

💭 Prediction

In our opinion, Watford could well find it tough to register a score against this Middlesbrough team who will likely gain the upper hand.

We therefore see a very competitive encounter with a 1-0 victory for Middlesbrough at full-time.

Should be an interesting one.
