Middlesbrough vs Southampton Prediction & Betting tips
Middlesbrough against Southampton is a contest for ‘the emperor’s beard’, but it should not be fun; At Middlesbrough they want to flare their own audience again.
The Premier League is definitely a team poorer, and it’s about Middlesbrough this time. Under Aitor Karanka and Steve Agnew, one has not been able to show what it’s capable of while Middlesbrough does not have such a bad team on paper. The lack of scoring ability, however, has given rise, because for defense it was not (always).
The fate of Middlesbrough last weekend was sealed by the upcoming champion Chelsea. In London, Middlesbrough lost 3-0 from Chelsea and has no chance of recovering from the backlog. The defeat was worth a while, because Middlesbrough did not make a fuss at Chelsea and almost created opportunities.
We saw last week that degradation does not mean that you also run out of the following games immediately. Sunderland, already degraded, began to win suddenly after the demolition was already official. At Middlesbrough they will also sign for it, especially because the team is obliged to do so. Those are not spoiled this season.
Probable setup Middlesbrough
Guzan, Fabio, Chambers, Gibson, Friend, The Roon, Clayton, Leadbitter, Traore, Negredo, Downing
Southampton is ranked 10th in the Premier League, but luckily Southampton can finish another eighth. West Ham, Bournemouth, Leicester and West Bromwich Albion also share things with this place. The competition is so murderous, but at Southampton they know what is being asked for a spot in the first ten.
For the match against Arsenal (0-2) rumors came out that Claude Puel’s position is under pressure, and after the game it will not be different. Southampton was attacking very weak and only managed to score twice. In the last six games, Southampton scored a total of twelve times in goal, so it’s not so crazy that the fans are starting to mourn.
Southampton managed to win three of his last six matches in the Premier League and scored again in his last seven league matches against Middlesbrough. So against Middlesbrough, Southampton should be able to score, but today everything is different. In any case, we do not have to count on spectacles, certainly not from Southampton.
Probable setup Southampton
Foster, Soares, Stephens, Yoshida, Bertrand, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Davis, Tadic, Gabbiadini, Boufal
