This afternoon at 16:05 there will be a dispute between Middlesbrough vs Manchester City, which will take place on Riverside Stadium, where I expect a spectacular match where we will have many goals.
Middlesbrough is ranked second in bookmakers, despite the fact that it is advantaged by the fact that it will evolve on its own field, but still to cheat with a much more valuable opponent.
Boro does not make a great season, at the moment he is in the “basement” of the rankings, occupying the penultimate position, being seven points from the 17th place, the last one to be saved from relegation. In the 34 stages so far, the team trained by Steve Agnew has accumulated only 27 points, managing 5 wins and 12 draws, losing 17 times in these games, scoring 24 goals, receiving 43.
Middlesbrough comes after a win on home ground in front of relegated Sunderland, imposing 1 – 0, ending a series of nine unsuccessful games.
Manchester City on the other side is seen as the favorite of bookmakers, as it was normal, having a more valuable lot than the opponent, with better evolutions in the current season.
The team trained by Pep Guardiola does not make a great season, this time being in the 4th place in the English Championship standings, aiming to be ranked for Champions League places. The “Citizens” have gathered 65 points in this championship edition, in 33 games having won 19 time, 8 draws, losing 6 times, matches in which scored 63 goals, receiving 35.
Manchester City is not going through a great time, with the last eight official games with just two victories, with Hull City and Southampton.
Middlesbrough vs Manchester City : Probable Teams
MIDDLESBROUGH : Guzan – Friend, Gibson, Bernardo, Chambers – Forshaw, Clayton, Roon – Ramirez, Negredo, Downing
MANCHESTER CITY : Caballero – Clichy, Kompany, Otamendi, Navas – Fernandinho, Toure, De Bruyne – Sane, Gabriel Jesus, Sterling
The two met twice this season in the championship when they finished on Etihad Stadium, but also in the cup, this time City winning, imposing 0 – 2 on “Riverside Stadium “. Judging by value, City should impose, but Middlesbrough is also a team that needs lots of points, so I will bet on the goals.
