Odds: 4/7 @ Bet 365
After enjoying an impressive start to the new Championship campaign, early season favorites Middlesbrough will welcome Rochdale to the Riverside Stadium on Tuesday looking to book their spot in the third round of the EFL Cup.
Starting with Tuesday’s hosts, although it may have taken penalties to come past Notts County in the last round, Middlesbrough are enjoying a stellar start to the new season. After five games in the Championship, The Reds have won four, drawn one and are yet to be beaten in any competition. Scoring nine and conceding just two in return, Middlesbrough now hold the best defensive record in the Championship. Winning their last five matches on the bounce, they have also kept a clean sheet in four of their last five.
As for the visitors, although they may have avoided relegation in League One last season, Rochdale have struggled at the start of the new season. Although they booked their spot in the next round with a 2-0 win over lower league Grimsby, Rochdale have only managed to win one of their five League One matches at the start of the new campaign. Losing the three and drawing one of their remaining outings, the visitors have also lost their last two on the bounce, conceding six times.
