Middlesbrough News and Form

Boro have won their last two games in the league, both with a clean sheet. Before that, they were on a six-match losing streak of form. They took a win at home over Hull on the weekend, which was a very good result. They are W8 D6 L7 at the Riverside this season which isn’t great. They have lost four of their last five played (W1) on home soil. Middlesbrough average under a goal per game on home soil this season.

Just 19% of Middlesbrough’s home games have gone over 2.5 goals this season. Each of their last three at the Riverside have gone under the goal line. They have taken a clean sheet in 48% of their league home fixtures. In total, they have averaged just 0.76 goals against them at home this season. Just one of their eight home wins this term have been by a margin of more than two goals. Boro have scored 65% of their home goals in the first period of fixtures this season.

Middlesbrough v Stoke Head to Head

There was a 0-0 draw when the two met in November
Stoke are unbeaten in four against Boro now (W2 D2)
Boro though are W2 D1 L1 in their last four at home against the Potters
Each of the last four meetings have gone under 2.5 goals

Stoke News and Form

Stoke earned a 2-2 draw at home against the relegation-threatened Rotherham on the weekend. That was their fifth draw in their last seven played (W1 L1). So it’s all very average from the Potters really. They have only managed three away wins all season in the Championship, part of an overall W3 D12 L6 record. Stoke have averaged under a goal per away game so this looks as if it’s going to be a low scoring duel at the Riverside.

Only 43% of their away games have made it over 2.5 goals, with Stoke taking a clean sheet in 38% of their away games. Stoke lost their last away game, which was at Swansea but they were undefeated in five before that. Again, there were plenty of drawn fixtures in that sequence, four of the five ended in a draw. Actually, four of Stoke’s last seven league games, home and away, have ended in a 0-0 draw. Five of their six away defeats have been by a two-goal margin.

Middlesbrough v Stoke Tips & Odds

Draw match outright at 23/10

Who will win – Middlesbrough v Stoke Predictions

Boro eased some pretty at home with a good win over Hull last weekend. It was only a tight win though and they still don’t look particularly confident. Stoke are very tight in defence and may have enough to grind out a point. Draw.
