Bristol City plays host to Middlesbrough on 20 October. Will the hosts be able to get three points and keep their leadership in the Championship? – the answer is in our forecast.
Bristol City is the leader of the Championship. The team has thirteen points scored in five games played. The winning streak, consisting of four matches, was interrupted in the confrontation with Barnsley (2: 2). Thus, the leadership in the domestic championship for Dean Holden’s charges is conditional, since Reading has the same number of points.
In the English League Cup “Bristol City” could not oppose “Aston Villa” (0: 3).
Neil Warnock’s team did not start this season in the best way. The team was eliminated from the English League Cup, losing to Barnsley (0: 2). In the Championship, things are not very good either. Only six points scored in five fights.
In the last meeting , Middlesbrough drew with Reading (0: 0), and before that got his first victory in the championship, beating Barnsley (2: 1).
The teams met among themselves twice last season. Draw and win for Bristol City

Add “Middlesbrough” in recent fights. This is felt by the results of the team. The last draw with Reading inspires optimism before the coming confrontation. We believe that the guests will be able to fight the championship leader.
It will be difficult for Bristol City , as, judging by the statistics, Neil Warnock’s players perform very well in away matches. Considering all this, the guests should cling to at least one point in this match. To do this, you need to reliably play on the defensive and surprise your opponent with smashing counterattacks.
Our prediction is that Middlesbrough will not lose and we bet on this on the Marathonbet line with odds of 1.63.
