Middlesbrough vs Bristol City predictions and betting tips for Tuesday’s crucial Championship clash on April 2nd with an anytime goalscorer tip and goals prediction included.
It’s been a torrid few weeks for Middlesbrough with Tony Pulis’ men dropping out of the play-off places following a winless run. On Tuesday, they’re back at the Riverside, and face another tough task against Lee Johnson’s Bristol City. The Robins are level on points with the Teessiders, and they’ll fancy their chances of leaving the North East with all three points. See our Middlesbrough vs Bristol City predictions below.
The fans have been critical of Tony Pulis in recent weeks with many disenfranchised supporters complaining about the slow and laboured build-up, and the lack of dynamism in the final third. In truth, they played well against Norwich, and did create a few chances, but found the leaders at their defensive best. It’s a quick turn-around for the Teessiders, who must pick themselves up and go again. They face a Bristol City side who will be buoyed by their magnificant victory against Sheffield United. The high-flying Blades looked in control for the majority of the match, but Lee Johnson’s tactical tweaks helped turn the game in the Robins’ favour. Andreas Weiman’s finishing also played a significant part, and he will be on cloud nine following his superb hat-trick in South Yorkshire. The men from the south west are one of the streakiest teams in the country, and it’s something that Lee Johnson has previously admitted to. When Bristol City win, they tend to do it in sequences. They went 13 unbeaten between November and February, and won seven in a row during that run. Only once this season have they failed to secured back-to-back wins in the Championship, and I do fancy them to get something from this game. With the sides level on points, and both firmly in the play-off hunt, there looks to be far more pressure on the hosts. Middlesbrough were expected to be in the top six, and they’re currently on the fringes, hence the fan’s frustration. Bristol City could take advantage of that, and they are 3/4 to win or draw in this game. Bristol City or Draw is the first of our Championship predictions for this evening’s game.
Although Middlesbrough failed to find the net at the weekend, they did create chances with Britt Assombalonga and Jordan Hugill both culpable in the final third. Norwich also defended well, and there was an opportunity cleared off the line. Boro have now failed to score in back-to-back games, but they are unlikely to make it three. They’ve not failed to find the net in three consecutive games all season, and they should be able to test the BC defence. It’s now seven games since the Robins managed to keep a side off the score-sheet, and I think this should be an entertaining 90 minutes. Goals-based bets are always generously priced in Middlesbrough games with their early-season reputation preceding them, so it’s best to take advantage of the 21/20 available on BTTS here. Both Teams to Score? Yes is the second of our Championship betting tips for Tuesday’s tie.
It may seem like an obvious pick, but just like his employers, Andreas Weimann tends to score goals in sequences. He netted in the opening two fixtures of the campaign, before scored three times in two matches at the end of August. He may only have scored nine times this season, but he clearly thrives on finding the back of the net, and at 4/1, he’s worth backing in this tie. Seven of his nine goals have also come on the road this campaign, and with Bristol City expected to find the back of the net here, the Austrian is likely to be heavily involved. Andreas Weimann is the third of our Middlesbrough vs Bristol City predictions for Tuesday.
Middlesbrough have priced up as the favourites for this tie, and can be backed at 11/10 to take all three points. Bristol City, coming off the back of a significant away win look generously priced at 3/1, whilst it’s 12/5 for the game to end all-square.
With plenty at stake, neither side can afford to make mistakes, and Under 2.5 Goals is available at 8/13 in this one. However both teams have plenty of talent at their disposal, and it’s 13/10 for Over 2.5 Goals in this Championship fixture. Both Teams to Score is available at Evens.
Britt Assombalonga was a touch wasteful at the weekend, and he is available at 5/1 to open the scoring in this one. Jordan Hugill, who started alongside the former Peterborough man is available at 6/1 to net the opener, the same price as Ashley Fletcher. Famara Diedhiou is 15/2 to score the first goal of the game whilst hat-trick hero is also 15/2.
