Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Middlesbrough will be looking to put an end to their five-game winless run in the Premier League when they host Watford at their Riverside Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The Boro are eyeing their only second win of the season and it has to be noted the newcomers head into the match following a 1-1 draw with West Ham United. Middlesbrough are tough to beat on home soil, but Sunday’s football game against Watford will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. The Hornets shared the spoils with Bournemouth in their last league match (2-2), but seeing that they were beaten by Burnley in their previous away fixture, we predict that Aitor Karanka’s men are going to emerge triumphant in Sunday’s clash. It has been four years since Middlesbrough recorded their last win over Watford, but we believe that the time has come for the Boro to put an end to the negative trend.
