Middlesbrough vs Man City Betting Tips
After going four games without a goal in the Premier League, the mood is fairly low at Middlesbrough at the moment. In fact, the only games they have won in 2017 have come in the FA Cup. So, perhaps, this competition has been light relief from the relegation battle.
Manchester City represent a much different challenge to Sheffield Wednesday, Accrington and Oxford though. Once again Boro find themselves at home, but can they really put their struggles aside to beat the in-form visitors?
Going into this FA Cup clash, City have gone five games without conceding a goal in a domestic away game. Since the worrying 4-0 loss to Everton, they have improved defensively and maintained their attacking threat.
This isn't ideal for Middlesbrough and an early goal could see Sergio Aguero and co storm to the FA Cup semi-finals without too many problems.
