The Sheffield Wednesday comes to this game with a win, 1-2, on the grounds of Bristol City: the two goals were scored by Lucas João. It should be noted that the locals do not lose four consecutive games in the championship. On this day against Middlesbrough, coach Jos Luhukay will have to line up his team in a 3-4-3, benefiting the organization of his block and the fast transitions, especially through the flanks. Striker Lucas João is the best marker of the home team, with 5 goals scored. For this game the coach can count on all his players.

This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 24 goals scored and 18 conceded; against 10 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses at their stadium, with 25 goals scored and 11 conceded.

Their defense has been very strong, since they only suffered goals in 3 of the last 10 matches for this competition.

Middlesbrough arrives at this game with a rebuff at home, 0-2, against Nottingham Forest, putting an end to the four games in a row without losing in this competition. In this game away from home, coach Tony Pulis must play in the usual 4-2-3-1, benefiting possession of the ball and organized attacks, however, in some moments of the game should act only in counterattack. Britt Assombalonga is the great highlight of Middlesbrough, with 4 goals scored. There are no absences of weight for this game.
