Venue: Riverside Stadium (Middlesbrough)

Middlesbrough has done a good job in the pre-season campaign, achieving four triumphs from their five friendlies, and their motivation is flying high after beating Marseille 2-0 in their last warm-up game. Only two triumphs from the last eight games of the season were not enough for Middlesbrough to at least secure a place among the top 6, finishing the term in 7th position - 5 points less than the playoffs. Like their opponents this week, West Bromwich Albion also managed to motivate themselves in the best possible way ahead of the start of the new season, with a 2-1 win over Hertha in their last friendly. Namely, West Bromwich Albion is one of the candidates for promotion to the Premier League, and they will want to erase the 2021/22 season from their minds as soon as possible.

Middlesbrough vs West Bromwich Albion Betting Tips: BTTS

Last season, Middlesbrough were the better team than WBA, but the important thing is that there were goals at both ends of the field in both clashes and we believe that trend can continue on Saturday. Middlesbrough finished last season as one of the best home teams in the Championship - just 2 points behind Fulham (best home team), but keeping a clean sheet against WBA was a problem for them. Namely, West Bromwich Albion were defeated only twice in the previous eight matches at the Riverside Stadium, and they managed to find the net seven times during that time. Middlesbrough showed signs of defensive frailty at the end of last campaign, but their attack is strong enough to threaten one of the promotion contenders in front of their home fans. Albion's only problem, ahead of the start of the new campaign, was a poor away record last term, but we believe the team has enough fire in attack to upset the strong hosts. It's an unpredictable match, but goals at both ends are on the menu.

Middlesbrough Team News

Middlesbrough sold David Spence to Tottenham, so club chiefs signed Darragh Lenihan this summer, in order to strengthen the defense.

Zack Steffen has also arrived from Manchester City on loan, so he should be the first-choice goalkeeper for Boro this season.
