THE PREDICTION

Watford will be looking to bounce straight back up to the Premier League as they welcome Middlesbrough to Vicarage Road in their first game of the new season. The Hornets are struggling desperately with injuries, which could count against them here. Boro boss Neil Warnock is famed for his sides being difficult to beat and his side should take advantage of Watford’s injury woes and secure a low scoring draw in the first match of the 2020-21 Championship season.
