Middlesbrough vs Burnley: Top Free Betting Tips

Following an away defeat against Huddersfield, Middlesbrough returns to Riverside Stadium to play their next game against Burnley on Saturday, 7 April. The Clarets will also be eager to secure all three points as they witnessed a draw in the previous league affair against Sunderland.

Match Result Prediction: Middlesbrough to Win

Burnley is on an undefeated streak in EFL Championship but they have ended three of the previous six league games in draws. The Clarets won the reverse fixture this season against Middlesbrough but the home advantage curries in favour of the Boro in this game. Middlesbrough has registered eight victories in the previous nine games at Riverside Stadium, ending the remaining one in a draw against Luton Town. Burnley was also clipped to equal scores against Millwall and Blackpool in the last three road fixtures. Given Boro’s strong performance at Albert Road, we predict the home side to earn a victory in this game.

Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

Despite losing their last game against Huddersfield, Middlesbrough was able to score twice in the fixture. At home, the Boro have hit the back of the net 16 times in the last five games at Riverside Stadium. On other hand, Burnley has caged the ball into the target eight times in the same number of league games away from Turf Moor. The previous H2H of these teams this season featured a total of Over 2.5 Goals and the current scenario lets us predict the same for this fixture.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough has scored at least three goals in four of the previous five games in front of their home crowd. On the defensive end, the Boro have conceded only three goals in three different games in the same duration. On the other hand, Burnley has managed to find the back of the net more than once in only one of the last five fixtures on the road. Therefore, we predict the Boro to have the upper hand in this game with a 2-1 lead at the end.

Middlesbrough vs Burnley: Form, Recent Games, and News

Middlesbrough Preview

Despite a 0-1 lead in the first half against Huddersfield, the Boro collapsed to a 4-2 defeat at the end of the previous game. Middlesbrough is third in the standings and the last defeat made them equal to Luton on points in the fourth position. With all players fit and available, manager Michael Carrick will be looking to make further progress on the league table.

Burnley Preview

The Clarets entertained Sunderland in the last game at Turf Moor but were limited to a goalless draw. But Burnley is still 11 points clear of Sunderland at the top of the points table. Except for central midfielder Josh Brownhill, who is a fitness concern, the rest of Vincent Kompany’s team is ready for this visit to Riverside Stadium.
