Stoke City vs Middlesbrough Prediction 4 March 2017

Tournament: English Premier League
Location: Bet365 Stadium
Match date: 04.03.2017 at 15:00

On March 4 2017 at 15:00 in Stoke City at the Bet365 Stadium the local club with the same name plays against Middlesbrough in the regular game of the 27th matchday of the English Premier League.

Stoke City seem to be close to the level of the Europa League zone, yet they still don’t take the position which would let them take part in that competition. Anyway, the current season is pretty controversial for them and they show results which are natural for the middle-peasants of the league. in the latest matches the Porters drew Manchester United 1:1 and Everton with the same score, lost to West Bromwich 1:0 and Tottenham 4:0 and outplayed Crystal Palace 1:0. As a result, the Porters have 32 points and take the 10th position in the standings.

Middlesbrough are definitely the least scoring team of the current season. The Riversiders only scored 19 goals in their 26 matches played. Yet, their defensive skills are more or less good as they only conceded 28 goals in their matches played since the start of the championship. Anyway, the final results of the Boro in the latest games were really far from perfection and their winless series is already 9 matches long.

The teams only met three times in their history. In the season 2008/09 Middlesbrough won once 2:1 and Stoke City won once 1:0. As for the first round game of the current season, in that match the teams drew as they scored one goal each. We must also admit that Stoke City haven’t slot for 7 home matches in a row already while Middlesbrough haven’t won in the away ones for 12 matches already.
