Competition: England - Championship

Kickoff: 20:00 UK/21.00 CET
Venue: Vicarage Road (Watford)

Watford, considered one of the main contenders for promotion to the Premier League, suffered a huge drop in form after a very good start to the new campaign, taking 7 points from the opening three rounds. Namely, The Hornets have not found a way to triumph in any of their previous four games in all competitions, while they suffered their first league defeat of the season at the weekend, losing to QPR (2-3). Meanwhile, Middlesbrough, a team that fought a fierce battle for promotion last season, were below expectations at the start of the new season, including elimination from the EFL Cup by Burnley (1-2). However, Middlesbrough finally brought joy to their fans at the weekend, beating Swansea 2-1, which was their first triumph of the season, thus ending a six game winless streak.

Watford vs Middlesbrough Betting Tips: BTTS

Both teams settled for a point in their last meeting, drawing 1-1, but recent clashes between these teams have often been monotonous with few goals and chances, but we expect sparks on Tuesday. After a good start to the season, Watford's form looks worrying in recent weeks, particularly their back line, who have conceded at least a goal in three of their last four games in all competitions. To make matters worse, Watford welcome Middlesbrough with two consecutive defeats, and this match is played on the day the summer transfer window ends, where the fates of their stars will be decided.

Meanwhile, Middlesbrough have faced a difficult start to the season but the team should be full of confidence ahead of the trip to Watford, after Boro achieved their first triumph of the season at the weekend. Boro are a team that likes to play open football, and they have proven that in the new season, where they are constantly scoring and conceding goals, and 5 of their 7 games have ended with BTTS. Namely, Boro are still without a clean sheet in the new season, conceding in each of their seven competitive games. Despite Watford's recent poor form, The Hornets have found a way to score at least once against Middlesbrough in 9 of their last 10 meetings at Vicarage Road. Given that both teams come with good chances for victory, I expect an effective duel.

Middlesbrough Team News

Goalkeeper Zack Steffen, who arrived from Manchester City on loan, missed the previous match with Swansea for unknown reasons, so Liam Roberts could be in goal again.

Manager Chris Wilder will be without Chuba Akpom, who is recovering from a knee injury, while Duncan Watmore is a doubt, after leaving the match against Swansea early.

If 28-year-old Duncan Watmore is marked as unavailable against Watford, he should be replaced by 21-year-old Brazilian - Rodrigo Muniz.
