Tuesday is the traditional time for a significant portion of the English Championship tour. This time around, six games are decided this evening. Among them, a duel between Middlesbrough and West Bromwich stands out, clubs that have not lost their chance of reaching the AFL, even if not directly. It’s especially important to take 3 points against a direct rival – who can do that? The journalists of the website have made an individual prediction for the important match on February 22, 2022.

Middlesbrough guessed by betting on Chris Wilder
Riverside have been unable to seriously prove themselves for a long time. Not even Neil Warnock, an experienced and successful specialist just within the Champions League, has shown anything with them. But even with that manager the club only finished in the top 10 of the division last season, and this season they even got off to a poor start. Then, to save the situation, the former Sheffield manager was called in. And it worked, and even better than expected! That was Manchester United themselves in the Cup, albeit on penalties, at Old Trafford. In the Champion’s League they also managed to make a good run, climbing to the top 6. But that unbeaten streak was snapped in the last round by a 1-2 at Bristol City, which caused them to fall out of the play-off zone.
West Bromwich try to rectify the situation
The Thrashers were perceived to be a lift team. But at this point, that should only have served them well. After all, it is for the AFL that the team appears weak, and that was the case last season, while the ‘floor below’ Albion are perceived as one of the main favourites. Valerien Ismael seemed to be doing well, but gradually the results only got worse. As a result, West Bromwich came to the end of January with 4 points in 6 rounds, causing them to leave the top 6, and with the cup relegation. Not surprisingly, there was a new coach here: the experienced Steve Bruce was called in. At the same time they signed Andy Carroll, who was out of contract. But there was no quick improvement: 0-2 with Sheffield United, 0-0 with Blackburn, 0-2 with Luton. The ambitious team eventually dropped out of the top ten of the division.
In 2019, during their previous stint in the same division, the clubs exchanged wins. The next time they met in November at West Bromwich Ground, it ended in a 1-1 draw.
West Bromwich can add to it, sooner rather than later, but they have a difficult and motivated opponent right now. We bet on the home side to win (odds – 2.26).
