 Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough are keen to return to the Premier League, a competition in which they played a few seasons ago. This year they have experienced an upward trend in terms of their level of play and results. They are currently in ninth place, just two points outside the promotion playoff zone.

In their last home game, Middlesbrough beat Bournemouth, one of the clear favourites for a move up to the Premier League. In their overall home record, Middlesbrough have six wins, two draws and four defeats. They have 16 goals scored and 12 goals conceded in 12 games, which means an average of one goal conceded per game played.

With 25 goals scored in 23 games, Middlesbrough are one of the most efficient teams in the category, as without having an incredible goal scoring capacity they occupy ninth position and are very close to the teams above them in the standings.

 Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest, a historic English team that had its glory years in the seventies and eighties, when they won the Champions League, but is currently stuck in the Championship and has failed to move up to the Premier League for many years in a row. Could this be the season that brings joy to Nottingham?.

Nottingham are currently the third best away team in the division, with five wins, four draws and two defeats. They are particularly good both offensively and defensively when playing away, scoring the second most goals, with 18, and  they are the second team with the fewest goals conceded, with nine. All this in 11 games.

Nottingham have won 11 of their last 15 points and have conceded just two goals in their last five games, reflecting the fact that they are in a very good run of form.

Middlesbrough vs Nottingham Forest Predictions

Two very similar teams are facing each other, both coming in with a similar positive streak. Middlesbrough’s home games have been notable for being low-scoring and Nottingham are not exactly spectacular goal scorers either. We think it will be a very close game but Middlesbrough can take advantage of playing at home to win by the narrowest of margins.
