From 17:00 EEST will kick off the dispute between Middlesbrough vs Southampton, the two will to meet on “Riverside Stadium”, where I expect a match where the goals will come from the first half.
Middlesbrough, although it is the host team and has the advantage of own land, today starts with the second chance at the bookmakers, as it was normal, but still to play with a stronger opponent. Boro is making a very weak season, at the moment he is on the penultimate place of the standings, being mathematically relegated to the second league.
In the 36 stages so far, Steve Agnew’s team has accumulated 28 points, managing only five wins, drawing 13 times, suffering 18 defeats in these games with only 26 goals, receiving 48. Middlesbrough comes after a defeat suffered on the field of Chelsea champion, where he lost 3 – 0.
Southampton, on the other hand, is a more valuable and experienced team, fighting each year for European competitions, which is why the dispute starts with the first chance, even if it is disadvantaged by the fact that it will evolve away.
The “Saints” do not impress in the current edition of the championship, at this moment being only on the 10th place in the standings, being unlikely to be placed on a Europa League spot. The 35 Premier League games brought 11 victories, 9 draws and 15 defeats to Claude Puel’s team, scoring 39 goals in these matches, receiving seven more.
Southampton is going through a weaker period, coming after a bad series of five games without success, in which they scored only two goals, receiving seven more.
