Hull vs Middlesbrough Prediction & Betting tips
With Hull against Middlesbrough, a basement duel rises in the championship. The home side are right in front of the relegation zone and the opponent only has two points more. Hull has been waiting for the next win for no less than 13 rounds. The only threesome in 2020 came on New Year’s Day with an away win at Sheffield Wednesday.
At that time, Middlesbrough also won at Preston and the guests had to be patient until the third to last day before three points could be scored again.
However, Middlesbrough won again last weekend, which is why the recent result is better in comparison.
For the upcoming match in the KCOM Stadium between Hull and Middlesbrough, the tip aims at an away win with cashback in a draw. More preliminary reports for the current game round in the championship are available under the heading England football tips.
The tigers have been toothless since the start of the season. The 13th of the previous year must be strong fear for relegation. Above all, the defense is a shortcoming in Coach Grant McCann’s team: With 67 goals conceded, they have the second worst value in the championship – only the penultimate from Luton conceded more goals.
The team from the northeast cannot count on the home bonus. On the contrary: More than half of the 20 home games were lost and no team in the league-wide comparison scores fewer points on their own territory. Finally, the previously at least reliable offensive was dismantled.
The kickers from the port city have not scored in three home games. However, the recent league game Hull gives hope of improvement in the attack. Three goals were scored in the draw in Birmingham, although this was mainly due to an exceptionally good efficiency on that day. This can be seen from the fact that the opposing box was only targeted three times in the entire game.
Middlesbrough narrowly missed the playoffs last season: In the end, only one point was missing for sixth place. During this season, the coach of coach Neil Warnock could not build on the respectable performance from the previous year. Instead of hoping to jump into the upper house, there is a risk of going into League One.
Finally, the smoggies have grown again. With the win against Charlton on the last day of play before the end of the season and the triple at Stoke last weekend, direct competitors in the relegation battle were defeated. With these successes, Boro has proven that they can act nervously in such six-point games.
Furthermore, the threes were brought away and to zero. One reason for the upswing is the improved personnel in the attack: With the previously injured Roberts, a powerful striker is available again. The Brit kicked in various youth selections from the Three Lions and was already under contract with Celtic.
In addition, the previously injured Congolese Assombalonga was last able to attack for the first time again over 90 minutes.
In view of this and the fact that the home side have the weakest home defensive in the championship, the odds for at least two goals from the guests are also provided with sufficient value in the encounter between Hull and Middlesbrough.
A third of the 21 goals of the season abroad have been scored in the past five guest appearances alone.
