Fulham vs Middlesbrough Predictions 

Fulham meet Middlesbrough in their return to the Championship. The Cottagers have retained most of their Premier League squad and face a Boro outfit riddled by injuries. I’m backing Fulham to win with over 2.5 goals.

  • Fulham have won 3 of their last 5 matches against Boro (all competitions).
  • Middlesbrough have seen over 2.5 goals in 4 of their last 5 matches (English Championship).
  • Middlesbrough have lost 4 of their last 6 away matches (English Championship).

Head to Head

Middlesbrough have a 29-26 record against Fulham with 12 draws in 67 encounters. 

The Cottagers picked up a 1-0 win last time they met back in January 2020. 

Midfielder Anthony Knockeart opened the deadlock in the sixth minute, with Fulham able to hold on from there.

Fulham Form

After a 10 match winless end to their Premier League season, Fulham have sought to start this season on the right foot. 

The Cottagers are undefeated so far in pre-season.

Returning from loan, midfielder Neeskens Kebano slotted a penalty in the side’s 1-1 draw with Southampton away from home. 

Fulham picked up their first win of the pre-season in a 1-0 triumph over Charlton. 18-year-old Fabio Carvalho scored the game’s only goal in 31st minute. 

Fulham Injuries & Team News

Fulham have made some changes ahead of their return to the Championship.

Ex-Everton coach Marco Silva was appointed to replace the outgoing Scott Parker. The Portuguese manager wasted little time recruiting players ahead of his first season. 

Argentinian goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga joined the club from Tottenham, while winger Harry Wilson made a 12-million-pound switch from Liverpool. 

The club did lose veteran midfielder Stefan Johansen to Queens Park Rangers.

Middlesbrough Form

Boro have enjoyed a successful pre-season, winning five out of six matches against lower league sides. 

They picked up a 2-1 win away to League one outfit, Plymouth Argyle, with midfielder Matt Crooks and winger Marcus Tavernier scoring either side of half-time. 

A 2-1 loss to non-league side York City followed, before the Boro finished off their pre-season with a 1-0 win over Rotherham United.

Middlesbrough finished tenth last season in the Championship after winning just two of their last nine matches.

Middlesbrough Injuries & Team News

Neil Warnock has recruited heavily, though will be without several starters for the opening match. 

Former Nottingham Forest winger Sammy Ameobi joined the club though is doubtful to start due to injury.

Experienced defender Lee Peltier also reunited with Warnock, with the 34-year-old expected to provide some stability at the back. 

Boro have also picked up Argentinian playmaker Martin Payero, who will be unavailable due to self-isolation after the Olympics. 

On the injury front, attacker Marcus Tavernier is doubtful to start due to a hamstring injury.
