Football Prediction of the Day Middlesbrough vs Tottenham
As I said above, due to the fact that the Premier League is compromised, I expect Mourinho’s band to focus more on the other competitions.
Middlesbrough is a very accessible opponent, who is positioned in the second half of the Championship hierarchy.
