EFL: BORO vs Bristol

Middlesbrough continues to stay in the Championship this season with a match that is considered difficult at home Riverside against Bristol City. A season of great disappointment is causing Middlesbrough to race each score with the red light group. There is not much time left and the home team needs to make the most of the opportunities to be sure of relegation success. Therefore, the encounter with a depleted Bristol City will be a better opportunity for Middlesbrough to raise hope.

It will not be an easy match as Middlesbrough will have to host the visitors Bristol City, who are much appreciated. Especially, the recent matches of the home team Middlesbrough are showing a lack of convincing performance. Specifically, the last 4 matches played, the home team has only 2 wins, the rest are 3 defeats, including 2 losses against Swansea and QPR are home matches. After the last 42 round, the home team Middlesbrough has got 47 points and is currently ranked 18th in the rankings. However, confidence has somewhat returned to Middlesbrough when they have just conquered Millwall (2-0) right away. As such, they created a 2-point gap with the group holding the red light and there was no reason for Middlesbrough to lose that advantage.

The Bristol City team played very well in the first leg and always appeared in a position in the promotion play-off group. However, the declining performance made them lose all advantages and run out of goals to strive in the remaining 4 short matches. Currently, the Bristol City visitors are not under much pressure in terms of achievement, as they have almost finished in 12th place, got 58 points and no longer hope to compete for promotion. Looking at head-to-head performance statistics, Bristol is still showing a little better. In the last 7 meetings, they lost 2, drew 1 and won 4 victories over Middlesbrough. However, 3 points is a bit too much for the visitors at this time. Remember, in the last 5 rounds, they only won 1 and lost to 4. It seems that the satisfaction of their position is turning the guest team into a First Division points warehouse.
