Our prediction for this Championship match:
Stoke and Middlesbrough square off against each other at Bet365 Stadium in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Saturday’s program. The Potters restarted the season with a 1-1 draw, with Nick Powell rescuing a late point for Michael O’Neill’s troops. The bad news for Michael O’Neill is that key centre-back Ryan Shawcross picked up a groin injury in the 1-1 draw with Reading.
Middlesbrough, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 3-0 loss to Swansea City, and it is no wonder bookies see them as underdogs in the Bet365 Stadium showdown. Even though Ryan Shawcross misses the game with injury, we are tempted to put our money on the Potters as they are more of a team than the Boro. Middlesbrough defeated Stoke City 2-1 at Riverside Stadium earlier this term, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
