Boro 3-1 to bounce back at the first attempt

MIDDLESBROUGH'S relegation from the Premier League was confirmed with a 3-0 defeat at Chelsea on Monday but they are just 3-1 with bet365 to regain top-flight status next season.

Boro are 9-1 with bet365 to win the 2017-18 Sky Bet Championship and 8-13 to finish above Sunderland.

Chelsea have moved seven points clear of Tottenham and might be looking towards strengthening for next season.

They have been linked with a move for Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk and are 11-10 with Betway to sign him this summer. Van Dijk is 11-4 to stay put and 7-2 to join Liverpool.

Gareth Bale is often mentioned as a target for Manchester United but doesn't appear set for a move to Old Trafford. Betway are betting on Bale's club at the end of the transfer window and quote 1-20 Real Madrid and 9-1 United.

Dick Advocaat has agreed to take over as Holland head coach for a third time - replacing Danny Blind, who was sacked after a 2-0 loss away to Bulgaria in March.

Partick v St Mirren

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Partick have not won in their last seven matches
Expert verdict
Partick failed to make a winning start to life in the League Cup, drawing 1-1 against Livingston and the Jags finished last season poorly in the Premiership. Championship outfit St Mirren were turned over by Livingston themselves on Tuesday but they could have the fitness edge on the hosts which may help Saints.
