Reason For Middlesbrough vs Birmingham Predictions

  • Middlesbrough have won four of their last six league games.
  • Birmingham are without a win in their last six games, losing five of those.
  • Middlesbrough are relatively low scorers, finding the net 1.27 times per game.
  • Birmingham have a similar record defensively, conceding 1.26 goals per 90 this season.

Rough ride for Birmingham at The Riverside

Middlesbrough host Birmingham this weekend in what could be a key fixture at both ends of the Championship table.

The home side have been in great form recently, winning four of their last six league matches and sitting just one point outside of the playoffs. A win here would see them jump into the top six, even if just for a few hours. This will serve as great motivation for the players as they try and climb into the playoff positions.

Birmingham have seen their form nosedive in recent weeks, losing five of their last six and slipping to 19th in the league. They now sit just four points above the relegation places in the Championship and they need to turn things around quickly to avoid slipping further down the table.

These two sides met in the reverse fixture just before Christmas with Middlesbrough running out 4-1 winners. That game also featured the last goal Birmingham scored with their goalless run now stretching to three games. Its hard to see that run ending against a Middlesbrough side that have lost just once and conceded just four times at home all season.

For that reason we’re backing Middlesbrough to pick up the win without conceding as Birmingham’s woes continue. Whilst we can’t see Birmingham finding the net, Middlesbrough should find things a little easier in the final third and, with that in mind, we’re predicting a relatively comfortable 2-0 win for the hosts this weekend.
