West Brom vs Middlesbrough by Rahul

West-Brom
VS
Middlesbrough
West Bromwich Albion welcome Middlesbrough to their ground at the Hawthorns looking forward to get their first win in front of their home fans after losing to Everton last weekend by a score of 2-1. West Brom will also feel a sense of exhaustion coming into this fixture as many of their regular starters played 120 minutes in mid-week EFL Cup action which resulted in a loss after a penalty shootout for Tony Pulis' men. West Brom have been pretty decent on the offensive end scoring in all their games played so far, which will bring confidence that they can get a result if Rondon and Berahino come to the party. Defensively the Baggies look a bit shaky after conceding 4 goals during the last weeks 2 games, and that can keep them wide open to conceding against a good counter-attacking Middlesbrough team.

 

Boro have a lot of confidence coming into this game after taking 4 points from their opening 2 games with goals from Negredo and Stuani helping them reach there. Boro also played in the EFL Cup for 120 minutes, but Karanka rotated a large part of his squad to give his fringe players some time on the pitch ahead of a busy campaign. The forward play of Ramirez and Downing providing support for for Stuani and Negredo have been plain to see for all that has helped them score their goals on the counter attack. Boro have also yet to unleash striker Jordan Rhodes, and that could be an option in this game. Boro's weakness has been on the defensive end where they have conceded a goal in all of their 3 competitive games so far, with Brad Guzan the favourite to be in between the sticks as Valdes is out injured.

 

This game should be an extremely cagey affair, and I think we might see both teams finding the back of the net, but just in case I am backing over 2 Asian Goal Line in this encounter.
