Middlesbrough v Man City: Expect An Away Win To Nil In Big FA Cup Clash

Saturday 11th March 2017, 12.15pm - Middlesbrough v Man City (Riverside Stadium)

The FA Cup is heading towards the sharp end this weekend with the quarter-final ties taking place, with all the teams knowing they are just one game from the hallowed turf of Wembley Stadium. The early game on Saturday is an-all Premier League one as struggling Middlesbrough host Man City at the Riverside Stadium.

  • Man City are unbeaten in their last six Premier League games W4 D2
  • Middlesbrough have scored just 19 goals all season in League play - comfortably the lowest tally in the division

City The Clear Favourites For Cup Clash

It has been an interesting first season in English football for Pep Guardiola with a strong start followed with a mid-season slump, but the signs have been positive again in recent weeks with Man City in good form at the moment.

The Citizens go into this game off of the back of a six game unbeaten run in the Premier League and in a strong position to qualify for the last eight of the Champions League. That clash against Monaco will be on their minds but a trophy this season is important for City and Guardiola, which means we can expect a decent display on Saturday lunchtime.

Middlesbrough, on the other hand, have been sliding down the Premier League table at an alarming rate recently. This FA Cup clash will be a welcome distraction for them but it is hard to ignore their woeful form going into this game. Boro have not won in the League since December against Swansea with only the FA Cup providing their fans with a welcome distraction since.

Man City are rightly the hot favourites on Saturday at a price of 4/9 with Paddy Power, whilst a home win for Middlesbrough is as big as 8/1 with Bet Victor.

Toothless 'Boro Set to Struggle Once Again

Middlesbrough have shown time and time against his season that they cannot score goals, and we cannot see any reason why that won't be confirmed again on Saturday.

Aitor Karanka continues to walk a tight-rope when it comes to his job and with just 19 goals in the for column this term, you can understand why the faithful at the Riverside are starting to get restless. A Cup run would be a nice bonus for them but Man City are in form at the moment and it is hard to see where the home teams get the goals from.

No team has been involved in fewer BTTS games in the Premier League than Boro, which means we can back against that outcome at 20/23 with Bet Victor as a nice side-bet.

Punters wanting to take that one further have a number of options with a City win to nil the best of them at 13/10 with Bet Victor. Guardiola rested a number of players in the 0-0 draw at home to Stoke in mid-week so we can expect them to be back up to full strength for this one and it really is hard to see anything other than away win in this big FA Cup game.
