📊 Form Guide

Middlesbrough
Middlesbrough
WDWWWW 📈

Middlesbrough, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 2-3 FA Cup victory over Mansfield Town.

For Middlesbrough, goals were scored by Uche Ikpeazu (4') and Caolan Boyd-Munce (14'). Oliver Hawkins (67'), Rhys Oates (85') and Elliott Hewitt (95' Own goal) scored for Mansfield Town.

Their latest results show that much solidity has been shown by the Middlesbrough rearguard. Middlesbrough have been miserly, resulting in the tally of goals that have gone in at their end during their previous 6 outings standing at 3.

Going into this contest, Middlesbrough are unbeaten in their last 3 league matches at home.

Reading
Reading
WDLDLL

Following on from being beaten in their last game against Fulham in Championship action, Reading will be aiming to make amends here.

In that match, Reading had 33% possession and 3 shots at goal with 1 on target. Fulham got 22 attempts on goal with 13 of them on target. Harry Wilson (13', 60'), Aleksandar Mitrović (45', 89'), Kenny Tete (68'), Neeskens Kebano (70') and Tosin Adarabioyo (75') scored for Fulham.

Illustrating their involvement in eventful encounters, we’ve seen goals 22 times in the prior 6 games in which Reading have taken to the field, making it a mean average of 3.67 goals per clash. Opposition teams have got 15 of those goals. Putting that to one side, it remains to be seen whether that pattern shall continue on in this match.

Ahead of this meeting, Reading have not emerged victorious against Middlesbrough when they've played them away from home in the last 5 matches in the league. Not good at all.

👥 Head to head

Inspecting their past head-to-head meetings going back to 27/04/2019 shows that Middlesbrough have won 4 of these & Reading 1, with the number of drawn results standing at 1.

A sum of 10 goals were scored between the two sides throughout the course of those matches, with 7 for The Boro and 3 created by The Royals. That’s an average goals per game of 1.67.

📋 Team News: Middlesbrough

The Middlesbrough manager Chris Wilder doesn’t have any fitness worries to speak of ahead of this clash with a fully injury-free group ready to go.

In our view, The Boro could kick off with a 3-5-2 system for this game featuring Joe Lumley, Souleymane Bamba, Anfernee Dijksteel, Dael Fry, Isaiah Jones, Matt Crooks, Patrick Mcnair, Marcus Tavernier, Lee Peltier, Duncan Watmore and Andraz Sporar.

ℹ️ Team News: Reading

Reading boss Veljko Paunović has not got a full squad to pick from. Michael Morrison (Knee Injury), Andy Rinomhota (Ankle Injury), Tom McIntyre (Fractured Foot) and Yakou Méïté (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are names that won’t be on the team sheet. Andy Yiadom is ineligible for this match because of suspension.

We’re of the thinking that The Royals could decide to play in a 4-2-3-1 system, starting Luke Southwood, Dejan Tetek, Tom Holmes, Michael Stickland, Ethan Bristow, Daniel Drinkwater, Josh Laurent, Junior Hoilett, John Swift, Tom Dele-Bashiru and Andy Carroll.

💡 Prediction

Our thinking is that Middlesbrough can and should be able to create a decent number of chances and shots on target.

However, Reading could well find it tough to score a goal of their own but we do fancy them scoring.

We can therefore see a 3-1 win for Middlesbrough at the end of the match.

Our expert partners are tipping under 3.5 goals for this match. Check out their VIP predictions here.
