Our football match prediction:
Middlesbrough will be aiming to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Norwich City when they host Brentford at their Riverside Stadium. Boro dropped to ninth place in the standings, but a win over Brentford could see them regain their spot in top six. Summer signing Britt Assombalonga failed to impress in Tuesday’s football match against the Canaries, but the opposition defenders should have the former Nottingham Forest attacker at bay as he has netted five goals in the Championship to date. The Bees showed character in a 1-1 draw with Derby County on Tuesday evening, with the team scoring the equalizing goal in the dying minutes of the match. Middlesbrough and Brentford seem to be evenly matched at the moment and we predict that they are going to play out a draw at Riverside Stadium on day 11 of the new Championshp campaign.
Highlighted Player (Adama Traore):
After starting his youth career at Hospitalet, Adama Traore moved to Barcelona football academy La Masia in 2004. The pacey winger made a great progress during his spell with the Catalan giants and it has to be noted that he scored eight goals in 63 appearances for Barca B. Adama Traore made his debut for the first team against Granada (4-0) on November 23, 2013, replacing Brazilian superstar Neymar in the 83rd minute of the match. In the summer of 2015 he signed for Aston Villa for a fee of £7 million, but he made no more than 11 appearances in the Premier League for the Vilans. At the end of the 2015/2016 season he moved to fellow English club Middlesbrough and he made his debut for the Boro in a 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace on September 10, 2016. Due to his dual citizenship, Adama Traore is eligible to represent Spain and Mali at senior level, but it has to be noted that he played for youth categories of La Roja.
Highlighted Team (Brentford):
Based in London, Brentford compete in the Championship and they were founded in 1898. Griffin Park has been the home ground of the club since 1904 and the capacity of the venue is 12,300. The Bees have yet to play in the Premier League and it has to be noted that they made it to the FA Cup sixth round on four occasions (1937/1938, 1945/1946,1948/1949, 1988/1989). Brentford played in the League Cup round 4 in the 1982/1983 and 2010/2011 season and that is the club’s biggest success in the competition. Brentford’s main rivals are Fulham and Queens Park Rangers and they take on each other in the West London Derby. The rivalry with the Cottagers is probably the biggest and you should bear in mind that the clashes between the two teams have always been marred by crowd violence. The colour of Brenftord’s shirts is red and white and they wear black shorts.
