Swansea v Middlesbrough Odds: Swans favourites to win quarter final tie

Swansea welcome Middlesbrough to the Liberty Stadium on Wednesday evening as the two sides meet for their Capital One Cup quarter-final tie. The Swans are making their first ever appearance in the last-eight of this competition and they are odds on favourites to move a step closer to a Wembley final appearance.

The Welsh side are currently priced 8/13 on in the latest match odds with Bet 365, who are streaming the match live (kick-off 7.45pm) on Wednesday night. Middlesbrough travel across to Wales as 17/4 underdogs and Tony Mowbray has a difficult balancing act as his side look to maintain their interest in this competition while also pushing for promotion from the Championship.

Swansea know all about earning promotion from the Championship and they have looked at home in the Premier League ever since. They impressed under Brendan Rodgers in their debut appearance in the top-flight last term and they have continued that good work under Michael Laudrup this season, although they did lose 4-3 in a thriller at home to Norwich on Saturday.

It was their first defeat in eight matches and Michu was in fine scoring form again as he took his tally to five goals in his last three matches. The Spaniard is quickly proving to be one of the signings of the summer and he is a best price 4/1 to be first goalscorer on Wednesday. Goals could be on the menu in this week's match as both teams have scored in five of Swansea's last six at the Liberty Stadium and both teams to score is a 4/5 punt.

Meanwhile, Swansea to win and over 2.5 goals combined is available at 7/5 and could be worth a look as the Swans head into the game on the back of their high-scoring defeat to Norwich, while Boro have scored eight goals in their last three. Scott McDonald has been in fine form for the North East side, with three goals in his last three to take his tally to eight for the season, and he is a best price 9/1 to score first with B365.

McDonald scored the winner when Middlesbrough beat their local rivals Sunderland 1-0 in the last round of this competition and he has been a key figure in their fine start to the season. Boro are currently third in the Championship but they have lost three of their last five outings and are threatening to stutter ahead of a busy Christmas period.

Late goals have been a real feature of their league games this season as there have been 18 goals in the final 15 minutes and the last goal to be scored after 73:59 minutes on Wednesday can be backed at 5/6. That looks a decent bet when you consider Swansea's last eight games have witnessed four 90th minute goals and it is the Swans who look worthy favourites for this quarter-final clash.
