Sheffield Wednesday welcome Middlesbrough for a clash in the Championship at Hillsborough this coming Tuesday.

Sheffield Wednesday are placed 23 with one point after six matches. Middlesbrough occupy a position as 24 in the league on one point.

Following some poor performances in the season-opening of this Championship season, Middlesbrough desperately need points and some good performance in the match against Sheffield Wednesday could get them back on track.

Sheffield Wednesday are not a high scoring team these days, as they only found the back of the net nine times in the last ten outings. That is an average of just 0.9 goals per game, as they conceded 16 goals. They managed three clean sheets in these matches.

Middlesbrough average 0.5 goals a game in their last ten outing, scoring a total of five goals. They conceded an average of 1.6 per game, for a total of 16 goals, whilst keeping their opponents from scoring one times.

Their latest encounter was a belter of a game, which finished with a 3-1 scoreline. An uncommon result, but we would not mind a similar goal fest this coming Tuesday.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Middlesbrough Prediction

Sheffield Wednesday Form

Two draws were the best Sheffield Wednesday could manage in the previous three matches. They drew 1-1 with Mansfield, before sharing the points in a 0-0 draw against Leeds. Their most recent match brought a 0-1 defeat against Ipswich. Sheffield Wednesday claimed just a single measly home win from a possible six in the Championship, which also saw them drawing two and losing three matches, in which they scored three and conceded five goals.

A top half finish is the dream target for Sheffield Wednesday, although keeping their Championship status for another season has to be the priority.

Middlesbrough Form

In their last three matches, Middlesbrough won 1-3 win against Bolton, lost 0-2 against Queens P.R. and lost 2-1 against Blackburn. Middlesbrough didn't manage a single away win in their last six Championship matches, but managed one draws, while suffering five defeats. They conceded 12 and scored four goals themselves.

A top half finish is the dream for Sheffield Wednesday, but neutral spectators have them down for a season in the lower end of the Championship.

Does Middlesbrough have enough about them to take out Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday? We are not as sure as odds suggest, but considering aspects like form, strength in squad and match history, we believe they'll come through in the end.

Sheffield Wednesday won zero points from their last zero encounters with teams from the bottom six, like their upcoming opponent. They won zero, scored zero and let in zero goals. Sheffield Wednesday claimed zero wins, one draw as well as five defeats in the Championship this season. Middlesbrough have a record of zero wins, one draw and five defeats in the Championship.
