Birmingham City - Middlesbrough predictions

Kickoff starts at 16:00 on 27/01/2024 played @ St. Andrew's Stadium

Birmingham City have their work cut out for them if they want to beat Middlesbrough. They are widely considered to be the weaker team – though the difference is not huge, to be fair. Overall, it’s shaping up to be an exciting showdown.

The Boro are regarded as favourites, but that doesn’t mean they can relax. With an almost negligible difference in the perceived strength of these two teams, sub-standard play is a recipe for disaster.

Birmingham City’s confidence is soaring after a major breakthrough in their previous Championship game. Despite a very hard matchup against Stoke City and a home-field disadvantage, Birmingham City secured an early lead and turned it into a narrow 1:2 victory.

Middlesbrough hit a brick wall last time they hosted Rotherham United as neither of the teams was able to break the stalemate for more than 90 minutes. We can assume neither was happy with the 1:1 result, though it reflects more poorly on Middlesbrough who were hard favourites.

Given The Boro_GOALS_CONCEDED goals conceded in their own net over the past 3 matches, Middlesbrough's defensive line is much to be desired.

We already saw these two teams clash earlier in the season with The Boro winning a solid home win. They’re on foreign grounds this time, but that shouldn’t hinder them too much – most bookmakers online still consider them to be the favourites.

No suspensions or injuries means both teams will have their full lineups available for a highly anticipated matchup.

Our advice is to stay on the safe side and go for the Over 2.5 Goals market. It’s reliable, very probable, and available at odds of 1.85 if you use the William Hill sportsbook.
