Middlesbrough vs Leeds Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips

Leeds continue their quest for automatic promotion as they travel to the Riverside Stadium for an English Championship fixture against Middlesbrough. Leeds are looking to keep up their title charge and should edge past Boro who are winless in their last 10 matches.

Middlesbrough Form

Middlesbrough are coming off a 1-0 defeat at Barnsley last time out in the Championship. It was yet another poor performance from Boro as they struggled to create chances and finished with just one attempt on target.

It was the 10th straight match without a win for Middlesbrough who are now just three points above the relegation zone. They have lost three of their last four matches and have failed to score in their last two. 

Middlesbrough News

Middlesbrough are without midfielder Dael Fry who is ruled out for the rest of the season with injury.

Leeds Form 

Leeds earned a 1-0 home victory against Reading in their previous Championship fixture. Pablo Hernandez’s 57th minute effort proved to be the difference, although they could have won by more having created several goalscoring opportunities.

The result means Leeds have now won their last two matches and opened up a five-point lead in second position. Marcelo Bielsa’s men are also regaining their defensive solidity having kept clean sheets in back to back matches.
