The Baggies recent record against Middlesbrough isn’t much to shout about.
West Brom have just one win over Boro in more than a decade, a 1-0 win at the Riverside back in 2019.
Away from that, their last victory came at the Hawthorns back in April 2010 - Simon Cox and Roman Bednar handing the already-promoted Baggies a 2-0 win on that day.
West Brom: 11/5
