Premier League 16th round. Middlesbrough (16th, agg 13-16) receives the visit of Liverpool (3rd, goal difference 37-20). Meet two teams with different styles; Boro hard and crowded defensive marks, while “Cormorants” have the best attack in the league and come away attack to recover the wasted points recently.
As I said, unpleasantly surprised Liverpool in the last two stages. It is obvious that shock defeat to Bournemouth not passed yet. Klopp’s team all make mistakes (newest Karius is responsible for blunders) and confidence disappeared in certain compartments. Only strikers remain strong, because they do their job every game. It was 2-2 with West Ham, Liverpool opened the scoring after 4 minutes, but “Cormorants” need success on Tuesday. The previous round, gave Middlesbrough hard to Southampton, score 0-1.
The hosts favors bets on fewer goals
Currently there great form in any of the camps. Liverpool has just one win in the last 4 matches, Middlesbrough just two in the last six matches. The program of the two lately was not complicated, but their matches have different backgrounds: Boro parties keep tight little difference in score, no more goals: 2-0, 1-1, 0-1, 2-2 , 1-0, 0-1. Liverpool when he imposes the game comfortably win matches, but the team on the “Anfield” is often implicated in mad parties: 6-1, 4-3 and 2-2 are some scores.
The last direct duel took place in 2014 in England’s League Cup, when Liverpool was further qualified on penalties after the match 2-2. Otherwise, Middlesbrough won only match in the last 6 u direct a 2-0 in the championship in 2009. We’ve seen three wins for “cormorant” 2-1, 3-2 and 2-0, and a draw 1-1 in 2008. It’s the kind of match that the first goal portends a game open, friendly bet “over 2.5 goals”. Selection “both marks” could be winning here, but the Middlesbrough attack does not seem very dangerous.
Middlesbrough knows to keep close matches with Liverpool
Statistics indicate 14 direct matches in 16 games concluded with a maximum of two goals scored by the two teams! Surprising is that Boro escaped without goal conceded in six of the last seven matches with Liverpool at home. In the last 8 of 9 matches played in the championship, the band’s Karanka made the bet “under 2.5 goals in the match”, meaning that balance and defenses will be the highest price Tuesday. Liverpool is unbeaten in 12 of the last 13 league matches. Somehow we think of the band’s excellent attack Klopp will have problems on Tuesday.
Liverpool have no problems Coutinho and Sturridge
Middlesbrough has little creativity part of Latin, because Negredo started to score and Ramirez and Stuani, although tormented by medical problems, bring more often. Downing will want at all costs to take revenge against his former team and we expect to see a solid reply to the hosts. Liverpool has them on Mane, Firmino and Origi in shape, but must “negotiate” with medical problems Can’s success and Lovren uncertain. Daniel Sturridge remains injured and nobody knows when it will return, and Coutinho is out until 2017.
Middlesbrough: Valdes – Barragan, Chambers, Gibson, Fabio – Clayton, Forshaw – Ramirez, De Roon, Fischer – Negredo
Liverpool: Karius – Clyne, Matip, Lovren, Milner – Can, Henderson, Lallana – Mane, Origi, Firmino
|Prediction:||Under 3,5 goals|
