For the last four years, Middlesbrough and Birmingham City have not played a single official match between themselves, so the fans are already bored with such football confrontations. According to the tournament calendar, this match will be held on October 05, and everyone can come to the stadium at 21:45 Moscow time. Middlesbrough have won four of their last six head-to-head meetings and only one match ended in a draw. And the last time the players of the Birmingham City club beat this opponent was twelve years ago.
If Middlesbrough and Birmingham City fail to determine a winner in ninety minutes of the match, odds of 3.2 will play. If the hosts win, quotation 2.12 will win, and if the guests win, 3.5 will play.
In recent years, the football club Bad Gleichenberg has always fought for the European Cups, but this season the hosts started much weaker, so they live in the middle of the tournament table. The team had a series of five defeats in a row, which was the reason for such a small number of points. True, Middlesbrough is already gradually coming out of the crisis, because this series was followed by a victory and two draws. The home game of the team has deteriorated, because if earlier the hosts were almost invincible in their arena, extremely rarely allowing defeat, then this season the players of the Middlesbrough club lost at home, and more than once. The head coach has already been told by the management that it is urgent to improve the team’s game, otherwise he will be resigned. Moreover, now the hosts do not have significant problems with the line-up, because only the right-back is in the infirmary among the main players.
After last year’s success, when the football club Birmingham City made it to the Champions League, the fans were waiting for a repeat of the success, but the team began to play a little worse. Since they have to play both in the championship and in European competitions, the guests do not have enough depth in the composition to rotate the players. Many key players find it difficult to play on tight schedules, and this leads to a deterioration in the game and loss of points. At the moment, Birmingham City is in eighth place in the national championship, already nine points behind the leader. In the last five matches, the guests won twice, drew twice, and also received an away defeat from the championship leader. Injuries to several defenders have led to inconsistent defensive performance, so Birmingham City concede a lot more goals than last season. But, despite the disqualification of the left winger, the guests are still strong in attack.
Since the odds for the victory of the hosts of the football meeting Middlesbrough – Birmingham City are not very large, but the team often wins with a minimal advantage, football analysts intend to bet on the Asian handicap -0.25.
