Middlesbrough v Manchester United Prediction & Betting Tips – 19th March 201717th March 2017 / lee
Middlesbrough v Manchester United Premier League, 19th March 12.00pm
Boro are starting to look in heaps of trouble now and are firmly rooted in the bottom three all a sudden and with not much hope of clawing their way back out this weekend either. They are just lacking the punch up top to punish teams and Manchester United will fancy a chance at collecting three comfortable points at the Riverside to keep their hopes of a top four finish alive. Boro are 11/2 for the win, with the draw at 14/5 and Manchester United are out at 4/7.

Middlesbrough v Manchester United Betting Tips
Boro have fired Aitor Karanka which isn’t surprising after a poor run of form which has seen Boro slip into the bottom three. Boro are now winless in their last ten Premier League games (D4 L6) and they have failed to score in six of those ten games and they are without a league goal in their last four outings now. Boro have scored 19 league goals only this season, which is were Everton’s Romelu Lukaku is at on his own personal tally for the season. No side has had fewer shots on target in the Premier League this season than Boro have. Boro are also winless in their last 12 against Man Utd in all comparison (D5 L7). At the Riverside, Boro have gone W1 D3 L1 in their last five there and they have kept three clean sheets in that sequence. Under 2.5 goals at Coral is trading at 7/10 and considering the busy week United has had, that’s value. Also 38% of Boro’s home games this season have gone under the goal line. Overall this season at home in the top flight, Boro have gone just W3 D4 L6.
Manchester United have netted in each of their last 14 away games against Boro but they will still have Zlatan Ibrahimovic out for this one. That leaves Marcus Rashford as 6/4 anytime goalscorer favourite at Coral. United have won four of their last six Premier League visits to the Riverside (D1 L1) and Man Utd are unbeaten in their last seven (W5 D2) against newly promoted sides, keeping five clean sheets. United have gone unbeaten in their last seven away games in the top flight as well (W5 D2) so it’s all been good from them. They have taken three clean sheets in their last four away games and Man Utd to win to nil at Coral has to be appealing at a price of 6/4. United banked a 2-1 home win over Boro back in December and overall, but Manchester United are currently on the longest unbeaten run in the Premier League (17 games), while opponents Middlesbrough are on the longest current winless run in the competition (10 games). A Manchester United 1-0 correct score is shortest priced at 11/2 considering this is a noon kick off after they had played on Monday and Thursday in the week.
Who will win – Middlesbrough v Manchester United Predictions
Manchester United away win: Manchester United have won four of their last five out on the road in the top fight and you can’t dismiss that. Boro have just shown time and time again they have very little to offer at this level.
