Our prediction for this Championship match:
All eyes will be on Riverside Stadium when Middlesbrough and Bournemouth face each other on day 2 of the new Championship campaign. Middlesbrough kicked off the 2020/21 season with a 1-0 loss at Watford, but they were not outplayed by the Hornets at Vicarage Road. The Boro are eager to record their first win of the season on Saturday afternoon, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Bournemouth. Experienced attacker Britt Assombalonga will be the man to watch in the home team.
The Cherries, on the other hand, showed character in a 3-2 win over Blackburn Rovers, with Dutch forward Arnaut Groeneveld scoring a late winner. Bournemouth are eyeing a quick return to the Premier League, but beating Middlesbrough on the road is easier said than done. Share of spoils is on the cards, and we are tempted to put our money on draw. The good news for the visitors is that Joshua King should recover in time to face Boro.
