Middlesbrough vs Norwich City: prediction for the EFL Championship Week 36

The Canaries seek to avenge the home loss in autumn, as the playoff slot is near.

Norwich City, only a point away from a coveted spot in top-6, will visit Riverside Stadium in Week 36. Game in Middlesbrough will begin on Wednesday, March 6, at 8:45pm CET.

Middlesbrough

Long gone are the days of the UEFA Cup final, as Middlesbrough became the first team to experience the fate of losing to Sevilla there. Boro’ last time in the EPL came and went during the 2016-2017 season, as they have been stuck in the Championship ever since.

At 44 points, everything was looking painfully average for the Smoggies, but a road loss to Stoke City spiced things up. Now only six points clear of the relegation zone, Boro need points to avoid the dangerous race to the finish line, with every match being an important one.

Norwich City

After going back and forth between the Premier League and the EFL Championship for a while, Norwich City finished only 13th last season, not getting to the playoffs. Now, however, the Canaries are back in the mix, trying to earn their top flight spot back.

Scrapped by Sunderland last week, Norwich City are only one point away from top-6 and now, armed with their fifth ranked offense, will travel to the north to face Middlesbrough.

Prediction ⚽️

A back and forth game in the first round ended up with a «2-1» Boro’ victory, as Norwich City are yet to beat their incoming opponents after being back in the Championship.

Now, however, as a road underdog there is a chance that the Canaries can stop that streak, as Middlesbrough was left scoreless for the second time in a row last week. We will side with the Canaries to cover the (0) spread for 2.29 odds 🔥.
