Reason For Swansea City vs Middlesbrough Predictions

  • After a promising start to the season, Swansea have now dropped to 11th.
  • The Swans have taken just three points from their last six games, all of which came from draws.
  • After a terrible start to the campaign, Middlesbrough are now looking a bit more comfortable, sitting 20th and four points clear of the drop zone.
  • Boro are showing slight signs of improvement, having lost just one of their last six matches.

Swansea looking for return to winning ways

After a swashbuckling start to the season in which they played some excellent football, Steve Cooper’s Swansea side have hit a real rough patch. The Swans have taken just three points from their last six outings, of which they’ve won none; that has them desperate for improvement going into Saturday’s game.

Now down to 11th and three points short of the top six, Swansea need to regain their form sharply if they want to be part of the play-off picture going into the New Year.

Saturday’s game against a visiting outfit that hasn’t covered themselves in glory certainly represents a good chance to do exactly that. But confidence can’t be too high given just one of their last eight outings at the Liberty Stadium have ended in victory.

Middlesbrough looking to continue recent improvements

Meanwhile, expected to fight for promotion once again coming into the campaign, Middlesbrough’s struggles have been one of the most notable stories of the Championship season so far. The Teessiders certainly didn’t expect to by lying in 20th place and just four points ahead of the drop zone with Christmas approaching, but that’s exactly where they find themselves.

Nonetheless, though it took an undoubtedly talented squad time to adapt to new manager Jonathan Woodgate, recent results have seen slight improvement.

The visitors can travel to South Wales with a degree of confidence behind them. Indeed, Boro have lost just one of their last six matches, at leaders Leeds, and are looking in far less disarray than during the opening months.

A close game is expected

Ultimately, a couple of months ago you’d have had this fixture down as a nailed-on Swansea win. But that’s simply no longer the case. Swansea are now the side struggling and they simply cannot buy a win at the moment.

By contrast, Middlesbrough’s position is something of a false one when taking into account the quality they have and the recent improvement they’ve shown. All things considered, we feel this will be a very even game and  backing a draw provides excellent value as far as the betting is concerned.

Swansea have drawn three of their last six matches, while Boro have drawn three of their last five outings on the road. With neither team in stunning shape, the spoils being shared in a potential 1-1 draw seems likely.
