📊 Form Guide

Middlesbrough
Middlesbrough
WLLDDW

Middlesbrough, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 2-1 Championship victory versus Barnsley.

In that match, Middlesbrough had 39% possession and 13 attempts on goal with 6 on target. For Middlesbrough, the goals were scored by Jonny Howson (45') and Chuba Akpom (48'). Barnsley got 13 attempts on goal with 1 of them on target. Cauley Woodrow (89') was the scorer for Barnsley.

It has been seldom in recent times that Middlesbrough have shown defensive steel. The facts show that The Boro have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 9 goals on the way. That sort of trend won’t necessarily be carried forward into this game, however.

Their previous form shows that Middlesbrough:

  • haven't been beaten in the league by Reading in their previous 7 matches.
  • haven't been defeated in their previous 2 home league matches.

WWLWWW 📈

Reading come into this clash following a 1-0 Championship win in the defeat of Watford in their previous match.

In that game, Reading managed 44% possession and 9 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. The scorer for Reading was George Puşcaş (41'). At the other end, Watford had 11 shots at goal with 2 of them on target.

A run of hard-working displays by the Reading defensive players has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 3 from their previous 6 fixtures overall. In that time, the number of goals that they have scored themselves amounts to 10.

Their previous form shows that Reading:

  • have left without a victory over Middlesbrough when they have played them away from home in the previous 4 matches in the league. Not good at all.
  • are undefeated in their last 2 away league matches.

👥 Head to head

A review of their past head to head meetings going back to 28/10/2017 tells us that these encounters have been a source of anguish for Reading. They have not managed to come away with any victories at all while Middlesbrough have been dominant against them, beating them in 100 per cent of those matches.

In all, 13 goals were shared by the two clubs in these games, with 10 of them for The Boro and 3 belonging to The Royals. That’s an average goals per game figure of 2.17.

ℹ️ Team News: Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough boss Neil Warnock will be grateful to have no fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this match with a fully healthy group available to select from.

ℹ️ Team News: Reading

With a completely healthy squad available for selection, Reading manager Veljko Paunović does not have any fitness worries to report before this game.

✨ Prediction

We believe that Reading could well find it tough to score against this Middlesbrough outfit who we think might well gain the upper hand.

We’re therefore seeing a hard-fought 1-0 winning score for Middlesbrough at the end of the 90 minutes.

It should be a good one.
