Middlesbrough vs Norwich Predictions
- All but one of Middlesbrough’s games this season have seen under 2.5 goals
- Each of Boro’s last seven games have seen under 2.5 goals
- Three of Norwich’s last four matches have seen fewer than three goals
- Middlesbrough are unbeaten in 10 and have won three from four at home
Can Boro brave Norwich test?
The Championship’s two form sides meet on Saturday, with Middlesbrough out to continue their 10-game unbeaten run. They host Norwich, one of the main contenders for promotion this term.
Norwich have put together a seven-game unbeaten streak of their own, but they should be conceded as they prepare to face a Middlesbrough side who shut-out Brentford in their last game.
Boro have recorded four straight clean sheets and they head into this clash with the best defence in the league, letting in only five goals in their last 11 matches. That’s seen all but one of their games finish with under 2.5 goals, including each of their last seven.
Norwich have also seen fewer than three goals scored in three of their last four and we don’t expect them to blow this game wide open. Middlesbrough are a tough opponent for any side right now and we expect a cagey affair as a result.
Under 2.5 goals is our first pick, while we’re going with a 1-0 win for Boro as our correct score prediction. Middlesbrough have won three of their last four at home and they are worthy favourites after keeping six clean sheets in their last seven games.
