Preview
Middlesbrough and Luton Town meet at Riverside Stadium, in a match for the 33th round of the Championship. These teams have tied (3‑3) in the last head‑to‑head for this edition of the league, played on 02‑08‑2019. In this match the home advantage may play an important role, as both teams present significant differences between home and away performances.

Analysis of Middlesbrough

The home team is currently in the 18th position of the league, with 37 points won, after 8 wins, 13 draws and 11 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Brentford, by (3‑2). In the last match, they tied in an away match against Wigan Athletic, by (2‑2). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 2 wins, 5 draws and 8 losses in away matches, with 16 goals scored and 25 conceded; against 5 wins, 8 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 16 goals scored and 15 conceded. In the last 10 home league matches Middlesbrough has a record of 4 wins, 5 draws and 1 loss, so they have won 17 points out of 30 possible.

They haven’t lost any of the last 9 home matches for this competition. In their home league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑0 (8 out of 16 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. 12 of their last 16 matches for this competition have ended with Under 2,5 goals, so there is a tendency for few goals in their home matches. They have conceded the first goal in 18 of their 32 matches for this competition, and have only turned the score around in 1.

Middlesbrough come to this game with a 2-2 away draw against Wigan, registering in this way the sixth straight game without winning in this English second division: the team's two goals were scored by Wing. Usually we can see that Middlesbrough play with a system designed in 4-4-2, with McNair being the anchor of the team, being this owner of a fantastic positional sense. On the other hand, Ashley Fletcher is the great highlight of this team, which is very powerful and strong in finishing: he has 8 goals scored. For this match the coach won't count on Dijksteel, Ayala and Roberts, all injured.

Confirmed Lineup: A. Pears, H. Coulson, H. Moukoudi, D. Spence, G. Friend, G. Saville, J. Howson, P. McNair, L. Wing, A. Fletcher, L. Nmecha.
Coach: J. Woodgate.

Analysis of Luton Town

The away team is currently in the 23th position of the league, with 27 points won, after 8 wins, 3 draws and 21 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in a home match against Cardiff City, by (0‑1). In the last match, they won in a home match against Sheffield Wednesday, by (1‑0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 2 wins and 13 losses in away matches, with 13 goals scored and 41 conceded; against 6 wins, 2 draws and 7 losses at their stadium, with 20 goals scored and 24 conceded. Their last away match for this competition ended in a loss by (2‑0) against West Bromwich Albion.

In this competition, they have a sequence of 11 losses in the last away matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their away mathes there is a tendency for goals, since 13 of the last 16 matches for this competition have ended with Over 2,5 goals. This is a team that has had a hard time trying to score first. They have opened up the score in only 8 of the last 32 matches for the Championship, they have reached half‑time in front in 5 of those 8 matches and have held on to the lead in 4. In 32 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 24 times and have only turned the score around in 4.

Luton come to this match with a 1-0 home win over Sheffield Wednesday, returning to triumphs after two consecutive defeats in the English second division: Collins was the actor of the team's only goal. For playing away from home and against a club with great individual values, coach Graeme Jones should choose a different strategy to the last match, that is, to prioritize defensive organization and counterattacks. James Collins is the player with the most ability to shake up the match, with this player being the best scorer, with 10 goals. All players are available for this game.

Confirmed Lineup: S. Sluga, M. Cranie, C. Carter-Vickers, D. Potts, M. Pearson, S. Bradley, R. Tunnicliffe, K. LuaLua, P. Ruddock , L. Berry, J. Collins.
Coach: G. Jones.

Betting suggestion:

The Odds of the match envision great favoritism for the Middlesbrough side, and we agree with that. In addition to playing with the support of their fans, the home team have made great exhibitions at their stadium and in addition to this they have high quality players, that is, it is expected that the team will dominate and hold the best chances to score. From Luton, we expect some danger, however, without much capacity to conquer a positive result. It is important to remember that the visitors recorded 11 consecutive away defeats. So it makes perfect sense to risk in favor of Middlesbrough in this round.
