Our prediction for this Championship match:
There will be fireworks when Watford and Middlesbrough face each other at Vicarage Road on the opening day of the season. The Hornets surprisingly suffered relegation to the Championship last term, but they are seen as one of the main favourites to return to the English top flight. Watford chiefs signed a loan deal with Glenn Murray in the summer, with Jose Holebas and Dimitri Foulquier leaving the club.
Anyhow, Watford are capable of beating Middlesbrough at home in the opening match of the season. The Boro, on the other hand, did well to add QPR centre-back Grant Hall to the squad, but the likes of George Friend and Adam Clayton are no longer part of the team. Considering that over the years the Hornets have turned their Vicarage Road into a real fortress, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed.
