Middlesbrough kept their play-off dreams alive with a comfortable midweek win over Cardiff City. This Saturday, Chris Wilder’s men will be looking for another huge three points when they welcome Stoke City to the Riverside Stadium in the EFL Championship. The Potters have nothing to play for, but Michael O’Neill’s troops have been in good form lately and will no doubt still be tough opponents for Boro. This promises to be an entertaining fixture in North Yorkshire. Check out our betting preview.

Middlesbrough Preview – Can Boro take it to the final day?

Chris Wilder has done a sensational job since taking over at the Riverside Stadium, as Middlesbrough are just two points away from sixth position. Their play-off bid may come up short in the end, but Boro are certainly heading in the right direction under Wilder.

Middlesbrough kept their top-six hopes alive with a much-needed win over Cardiff in midweek. Despite not being at their best, the Teessiders eased to a 2-0 victory over the Welsh side, with Marcus Tavernier and Riley McGree on target.

Our betting prediction:
Under 2.5 goals

Realistically, Middlesbrough need to win their last two and hope for favours from elsewhere. After Saturday’s showdown with Stoke, Wilder’s boys end their Championship campaign with a trip to Deepdale to face Preston North End.

Stoke City Preview – Can the in-form Potters upset the promotion chasers ?

Before a ball was kicked last summer, Stoke City were tipped to have a successful season under the experienced Michael O’Neill. They made a decent enough start, but six defeats in nine from November to January saw them slip away from the top six.

Stoke’s form has improved of late, with the Potters picking up five wins from their last seven. Victories over the likes of Millwall, Sheffield United, West Bromwich Albion, Blackburn Rovers and Queens Park Rangers have taken them up to 12th. City will be looking for a top-half finish.

Middlesbrough vs Stoke City Betting Advice

When they last met at the Riverside, Boro secured a routine 3-0 home win back in March last year. Grant Hall, Paddy McNair and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing scored the goals in that one.

The reverse meeting at the bet365 Stadium this season finished in an uneventful goalless draw.


Key Facts – Middlesbrough vs Stoke City Betting Tip

  • Middlesbrough ended a run of five without victory on Wednesday
  • Stoke have won five of their previous seven games
  • The Potters have failed to score in their last two with Boro


Middlesbrough’s need for the points is greater, but Stoke have upset a lot of clubs since their season was effectively over. With a top-half finish up for grabs, City will want the points at the Riverside.

Middlesbrough have run out of steam at the end of the campaign, and our money is going on in-form Stoke in this one. The away win is nicely priced at 16/5.

Jacob Brown has been a big hit with the Stoke supporters this season, scoring 13 Championship goals. Brown, who has netted three in his last four, is available at 12/1 to score the opening goal of this game.
