Reason For Fulham vs Middlesbrough Predictions

  • Middlesbrough are the league’s form side, with just one defeat in eight league games.
  • Fulham are missing Aleksandar Mitrovic, but he’s scored just two of Fulham’s last 12 home goals.
  • Boro have scored in 10 straight matches.
  • The visitors have hit over a third of their league goals in the last six games.
  • Fulham have scored in 11 of their last 12 at home.

Capital Return for Boro

Middlesbrough’s great form couldn’t keep them in the FA Cup in midweek, but they have another trip to London on Friday night. Just three days after their loss to Tottenham, Boro are away to promotion contenders Fulham

The Cottagers are fourth in the Championship but meet the team who currently top the form table this weekend. Can Fulham improve their recent run and pull off a victory in this clash?

Boro on Form

Since losing 4-0 at Leeds United in November, Middlesbrough have taken more points than any other Championship side (W5 D2 L1 – 17 points). They are a side to worry about here, with Jonathan Woodgate getting them up and running after a poor start. They look much better across the pitch, losing only twice in 10 games in all competitions. They have 13 points from their last five games, which should worry the hosts.

Meanwhile, the hosts’ chances are being questioned after an injury to Aleksandar Mitrovic – scorer of 43% of their goals this term. However, Mitrovic has scored one of Fulham’s last seven home goals, and that came from the penalty spot. Of the 12 goals the Cottagers have scored since the start of November, Mitrovic has converted only two. They should continue that form against a Boro side who have conceded in 77% of their trips this term.

Scoring Spike for Visitors

As part of Middlesbrough’s great form, Woodgate’s side have started firing on the road. The visitors come into this clash having found the net in five consecutive away trips in all competitions and in five of their last six away in the league. Overall, the away side have scored in 10 consecutive matches, so they head into this clash as a real threat to Fulham. While Boro come here with just 28 goals in 27 Championship matches, 10 of those have come in their previous six games.

Fulham have scored in 11 of their last 12 home matches, while they average over 15 shots per game at Craven Cottage this season. The hosts have found the net in 81% of their Championship matches overall, 93% of their home league games and in 100% of their home clashes with teams in the bottom half. However, the hosts have also conceded in eight of their last 10 here, so both teams to score is our pick for this clash.

Fulham are winless in their last two home league games against Middlesbrough (D1 L1) since winning 4-3 in April 2015. However, Middlesbrough have won none of their last four matches against Fulham in all competitions (D2 L2) since a 2-0 victory in the Championship back in February 2016. These two sides drew their first clash of the season, while we can see a repeat here. Given Fulham’s solid home form and the visitors’ recent run, a 1-1 draw is our correct score pick.
