Middlesbrough 2 – Union Berlin 2 (Pre-season friendly, July 30, 2010) Chinedu Ede’s looping header put the Germans ahead, but Scott McDonald put Boro in the lead at the break with a double. Bjorn Brunnemann’s low drive ended the match honours-even.
Nottingham Forest 1 – Lyon 3 (Pre-season friendly, July 29, 2010) Bafetimbi Gomis opened the scoring after just eight minutes with a rasping 25-yard shot. Dele Adebola equalised after 34 minutes when he turned home Robert Earnsha’s mishit shot but parity lasted just six minutes before Gomis struck again, this time from close range. Jimmy Briand beat Paul Smith with a tame shot just after the hour to complete the scoring.
