Today see’s Burton Albion travel to the Riverside Stadium as part of the latest round of games in the Sky Bet Championship.
Last time out
The last time these two met was almost exactly two years to day as Middlesbrough were 2-1 winners in the EFL Cup, thanks to goals from Christian Stuani.
Both teams go into the game with a difference of form following last weekends fixtures.
Middlesbrough ran away 1-0 winners at home to Sheffield United courtesy of a Rudy Gestede header, who will be hoping to keep his place in the side tonight, while Burton lost 4-1 away to Hull.
Burton are still looking for their first league win of the season and currently sit in bottom place, after losing their first two games.
Burton will be looking to get to winning ways and certainly won’t be an easy game for Boro as they try to keep it tight at the back after conceding four goals at the weekend.
However, I think Boro’s quality in the final third will prove to be too much for the Brewers.
Middlesbrough 2-0 Burton Albion
Result: Middlesbrough 2-0 Burton Albion
Thanks for reading.
