Our football match prediction:
Nottingham Forest will be looking to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Barnsley when they face Middlesbrough at their City Ground. The Reds have been having their ups and downs at the start of the season and they certainly face an uphill task in Saturday’s football match against the Boro. Aitor Karanka’s team are seen as one of the main favourites to secure promotion to the Premier League and they have been producing fine performances at the start of the season. Middlesbrough head into the game against Forest following a routine 2-0 win over Burton Albion and we predict that they are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration this weekend. In their last meeting in the English second tier the Reds emerged triumphant and, no doubt, the Boro are hungry for revenge. Middlesbrough attacker Assombalonga will face his former club at the City Ground and, taking everything into account, away win should be considered.

Highlighted Team (Middlesbrough):
Middlesbrough are 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.
