Middlesbrough vs Man City Predictions, Betting Tips and Preview

Middlesbrough vs Manchester City betting tips and predictions for the FA Cup quarter final this weekend including a match preview and the best bets for the clash.

 

Can Manchester City book an FA Cup semi-final place on Saturday? The first quarter final kicks off on Saturday afternoon at the Riverside, with Pep Guardiola’s men heavy favourites to make the next round.

 

Middlesbrough vs Man City Predictions

 

City’s hopes of winning the Premier League title suffered a blow on Wednesday night, as they drew 0-0 at home to Stoke. If only they were in FA Cup form, as they’ve been scoring for fun in this competition. They may have drawn a blank against Huddersfield, but in their other three games City have scored 13 times. Given that Middlesbrough dropped in to the bottom three last weekend, this should be an opportunity for the Citizens to record a big win. We’re backing over 2.5 City goals for our first Middlesbrough vs Man City prediction, which is priced at 17/10 with Coral. Open a Coral account via this link for a £20 free bet.

 

City’s scoring troubles in midweek were nothing compared to Boro, who are the lowest scoring side in the top flight this season. Former City striker Alvaro Negredo has hit a rough patch of form, and outside of him the men from the Riverside look lost. Guardiola has seen his team keep three clean sheets in this competition, while they’ve managed a shutout in six of their last nine. We’re backing City to win to nil on Saturday for our second Middlesbrough vs Man City betting tip which is priced at 5/4 with Bet365. Use this bet365 sign-up link to get a £200 bonus.

 

Man City vs Middlesbrough Team News

Pep Guardiola has named a strong side throughout this competition, and their Champions League tie in midweek is unlikely to change that too much. Middlesbrough are more likely to make changes, after dropping in to the bottom three following a defeat to Stoke.

Middlesbrough actually have the better of the recent encounters between these two, including a shock FA Cup victory at the Etihad. These two drew 1-1 earlier in the season, but goals have dried up for Boro since then.

 

Middlesbrough v Manchester City Betting Odds

City are priced at 2/5 to win this game within 90 minutes, with the Citizens aiming to turn around their poor record against Boro of late. Given that City have been in excellent scoring form of late, we’re backing a couple of any time scorers in this game. Both Yaya Toure and Leroy Sane have scored in two of the three rounds so far. The Ivorian is a 5/2 shot to score here with Sky Bet, while Sane is 13/5 with Paddy Power. Given how well they’ve been playing in this competition, we expect both to score but we’re going for Yaya to score anytime to complete this weekend’s FA Cup betting tips for Middlesbrough vs Man City.
