Middlesbrough vs Brentford Match Preview
Middlesbrough were involved in an entertaining 3-3 draw on the opening night of the season that was a great advert for the Championship. Ashley Fletcher, Lewis Wing and Britt Assombalonga netted a goal each in a game they could have won having missed a penalty but probably did not deserve even a point when looking at the expected goals data.
At the Riverside, Boro were decent last season winning ten of their 23 fixtures and only losing on six occasions. The 17 that they conceded in front of their own fans gave them the joint-best home defence along with Sheffield United.
Brentford absolutely dominated Birmingham on the opening day of the season but found themselves at the wrong end of the results going down 1-0. The lack of goals will not be helped by the sale of forward Neal Maupay.
Away from Griffin Park, the Bees really struggled in the last campaign winning just three times with nine draws and 11 defeats. Just 23 of the 73 goals that the London outfit grabbed last season came on their travels.
Bookmakers make Middlesbrough marginal favourites but the prices suggest that there is little to choose between the duo. It is hard to argue with this notion and the game to finish all-square looks the best bet on offer here. A little more value can be hard in taking the game to end in a draw and both teams to find the back of the net.
