Luton vs Middlesbrough Predictions and Betting Tips, 02 Aug 2019

The Match Is Over. Score: 3-3
The new Championship season kicks off with an interesting match that pits together newcomers from League One, Luton, and a team who had a decent chance to contest promotion up to the Premier League through play-offs, with Middlesbrough finishing within a single point of 6th place, occupied by Derby. Here we analyse the first game of opening round and give predictions for it.

Luton v Middlesbrough Team News

Both clubs will enter this campaign after they've made managerial changes in the summer. Nathan Jones, who steered Luton to the top spot in League One last season, has been replaced by Graeme Jones and will continue at counterparts Stoke City for this one. For the team that ended up a point outside the top six Boro have appointed Jonathan Woodgate to replace the sacked Tony Pulis.

Notably, not only did Luton go up after winning last season's League One but managed to earn back-to-back promotions having come second in the previous year in League Two to effectively stroll up the ranks - but might returning to the second-best English competition in as short as 15 months prove too much of a task?

This will be in new manager Jones' responsibilities to keep his new team up in the second tier. On the other side, Boro head coach Woodgate will face quite opposite aims: to get the team back to the heights of English football.

Why are our predictions certain to succeed?

Championship newcomers Luton will be handed a hard task straight away in the form of Middlesbrough, whose games, in fact, last campaign were quite modest on goals with Tony Pulis, producing three or more goals per game in just over one third of their fixture (32%). What is expected from Woodgate, however, is a more attack-minded approach.

If he does so, it will better suit their first game at Luton’s Kenilworth Road, that averaged the highest total goals per game in League One last term (3.3) and the home team scored 2.48 goals per game there during their league-winning campaign.
