Our prediction for this Championship match:
All eyes will be on Carrow Road when Norwich City and Middlesbrough face each other in a highly-anticipated Championship game. The Canaries aim to build on a 2-1 win over Rotherham United, and the bookies see them as favourites to win Saturday’s clash as well. Despite failing to find the net in the midweek triumph, Teemu Pukki should continue to lead the line for the hosts, while all Andrew Omobamidele, Adam Idah, Jon Rowe, and Jakob Sorensen remain in the recovery room.
The Boro, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 3-0 win over Blackpool, with the team climbing to 16th place in the standings, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the Carrow Road showdown. Since Norwich emerged triumphant in six of the previous seven meetings with Middlesbrough, home win should be considered. Both Fisher and Watmore are injured for the away team.
Highlighted Player (Aaron Ramsey):
Aaron Ramsey is a Welsh football player born on the 26th of December in Caerphilly. Ramsey started his football career playing for Cardiff City. After 2 seasons playing for Cardiff City Ramsey got transferred to Arsenal for a unknown transfer fee. After playing for a loan for Nottingham Forrest and Cardiff City Ramsey returned to Arsenal in 2011.
Aaron Ramsey made his debut for the Welsh national team in 2008 and is one of the youngest players in the history of Welsh football. Ramsey is currently one of the most talentful midfielders of his generation. Because of his dribbling skills, vision and great passes and being two-footed Ramsey is known for being a player that dominates the midfield.
Despite several injuries in his still young career Ramsey managed to win the FA cup and the Community Shield twice with Arsenal. Ramsey is called Rambo by his fans. Ramsey and Gareth Bale are the biggest strength of the Welsh national team which will play in the EURO 2016 for the first time in history.
Highlighted Team (Middlesbrough):
Middlesbrough is a professional football club that have been balancing between the top two divisions of England’s league system in the modern history. Boro have been playing their home games at the Riverside Stadium since 1995 and their shirt colour is red. The capacity of the Riverside Stadium is 34,742. Middlesbrough impressed in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and they did really well to secure promotion to the English top flight. Newcastle United and Sunderland are regarded as the club’s main rivals, but there is a rivalry with Leeds United as well.
Middlesbrough made it to the FA Cup final in 1997, but Chelsea proved to be a big catch for the Boro in the title game (0-2). However, the Riverside Stadium outfit did remarkably well to win the League Cup trophy in 2004, with the team beating Bolton Wanderers in the final. George Boateng, Stewart Downing, Juninho Paulista, Gareth Southgate, Jonathan Woodgate, Yakubu Aiyegbeni, Tuncay Sanli and Hamilton Ricard are the star footballers who left their mark at Middlesbrough.
