After 12 wins, 5 draws and 9 losses, the home team is in 8th place, having won 41 points. In the last game, he beat Preston North End out (2-3), having lost (0-1) at home in a game against Aston Villa. This is a team little affected by the house factor, that is, presents similar results at home and away, since in the last 30 games has recorded 6 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses as a visitor, with 23 goals scored and 19 conceded; against 9 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses in his stadium, with 20 goals scored and 10 conceded. The team arrives at this meeting after a home win with Sunderland by (2-0). For the championship, Middlesbrough won 16 points out of 30 after 5 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses in their last 10 games at their home stadium. Defensive solidity has not been his strong point as he has conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 games but his attack has regularly scored as he has scored goals in 8 of the last 10 games for this competition. In their home games for this competition there is a tendency towards few goals, since in 10 of the last 13 that disputed there were less than 3 goals. In 26 games in this event, he suffered the first goal 14 times and only managed 2 rounds.
Middlesbrough looks to be much better at their performance and currently has two wins in a row in the official games, being the last on Sunderland for the FA Cup. We remember that ” Boro ” aims to return to the Premier League, and for this reason, all home games are important. As usual, commander Tony Pulis should keep the team at 4-2-3-1 benefiting from the possession of the ball and successive bouts through the aisles: Braithwaite acts as number 10, but appears very well in finishing areas. It is important to note that Britt Assombalonga is Middlesbrough’s top scorer with 12 goals scored. There is no lack of weight for this challenge.
Analysis of Fulham
After 10 wins, 9 draws and 7 losses, the visiting team is in 10th place, having won 39 points. In the last game, he beat Ipswich Town (4-1) at home (2-2) in the last game having drawn it out in a game against Hull City.

The team conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 games, so it has not presented great defensive solidity, but its attack has regularly marked, since it managed to materialize in 9 of the last 10 games for this competition. In 26 games in this event, he suffered the first goal 12 times and only managed 2 rounds.
Fulham’s season has also been very positive, a little like the image of the opponent, and now he has four straight games without losing in the championship. However, we should point out that Fulham are in this game with a defeat in the FA Cup, 0-1, against Southampton. In this tough-packed out-of-door game, commander Slavisa Jokanovic must go into the field with a cautious, low-key strategy, exploiting only the counterattack. However, the visiting set has all the quality to take the meeting in a few moments. Ryan Sessegnon is the best finisher of the visitors with 7 cleared goals. It seems that there are no absences for this game.
