Our prediction for this Championship match:
Brentford continue life without star duo Watkins – Benrahma, who were hungry for the Premier League football. The Bees are still seen as one of the main favourites for promotion, or at least a place in the playoffs, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to return to the English top flight. Summer signing Ivan Toney has already started paying off, and the former Peterborough attacker will surely pose a big threat for the Middlesbrough defenders.
The Boro, on the other hand, have been impressive at the back of late, with the team eyeing their fourth consecutive clean sheet in the Championship. However, preventing Brenftord attackers from scoring in the suburbs of London is easier said than done. In their last meeting at Brentford Community Stadium the Bees emerged triumphant, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself.
