Our prediction for this Championship match:
Middlesbrough and Leeds United, the two old rivals, face each other at Riverside Stadium in what is expected to be one of the most exciting matches of Wednesday’s program. The Whites have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team recording back-to-back wins over Bristol City and Reading in the last two league matches. Marcelo Bielsa’s men failed to secure automatic promotion to the Premier League last term, and, no doubt, they are eager to make amends for the unsuccessful campaign.
Even though influential midfielder Kalvin Phillips misses the game with injury, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the promotion-chasing visitors. The Boro failed to impress in back-to-back losses to the likes of Luton Town and Barnsley, and we do not believe that they are capable of matching the Elland Road outfit.
