Middlesbrough Preview – Will Boro claim a first win in five?

Middlesbrough’s promotion bid has run out of steam, but Boro have had a far better season this time around. Neil Warnock’s men are 14 points behind sixth place with just 15 points left to play for.

Middlesbrough were still in the mix when they secured back-to-back wins over Stoke City and Preston North End in mid-March, but the club from North Yorkshire have gone on to take just one point from four games. They have drawn with Watford and been beaten by Millwall, Bournemouth and Barnsley.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1210 GMT, Friday 16 April)

Middlesbrough recently lost five of six at the Riverside, but they head into this one on a four-game unbeaten run at home, winning two and drawing two since a shock 3-1 reverse to Bristol City in February. Can Boro pick up another home win on Saturday?

Queens Park Rangers Preview – Can QPR secure just a second away victory in seven?

Since the turn of the year, Mark Warburton’s Queens Park Rangers are one of the form teams of the Championship. In 2020, the R’s won just four league fixtures, but they have already won 11 league games in 2021.

Rangers have been in patchy form of late, though, winning two and losing two of their previous four. After a thumping 4-1 home victory over Sheffield Wednesday last Saturday, QPR were beaten 3-1 by lowly Rotherham United at the New York Stadium in midweek.

Middlesbrough vs Queens Park Rangers Betting Advice

Middlesbrough have found it tough going against QPR in recent years, winning only one of the last five meetings. However, two of the previous three have ended in draws. Back in September, a Bright Osayi-Samuel goal cancelled out Chuba Akpom’s opener in a 1-1 stalemate at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.


Key Facts – Middlesbrough vs Queens Park Rangers Betting Tip

  • Middlesbrough are unbeaten in four at home, winning two and drawing two
  • QPR have won just one of their last six on the road
  • These two clubs are separated by just one point


Neither side will catch the teams in the play-offs this season, so the pair can start preparing for another campaign in the Championship. To be fair, both clubs would probably have settled for that at the start of this hectic season.

Two of the previous three Middlesbrough vs QPR meetings have ended all square, and we can see the pair cancelling each other at the Riverside again this Saturday. The draw and both teams to score is available at 15/4.

The game earlier in the season ended in a 1-1 draw. A repeat scoreline this weekend is priced at 11/2.
