Middlesbrough v Man City tips
FootyOn pick out three top Middlesbrough v Man City tips ahead of their FA Cup quarter-final clash this weekend.
Live on Saturday, March 11th at 12:15 GMT on BT Sport 2.
Both Premier League teams will be looking to reach the semis of this year’s tournament, and from this stage there’ll be no replay. Straight to extra time and penalties if it’s a draw after normal time.
Manchester City are five-time FA Cup champions, last claiming it in 2011, while Boro lost in their only final appearance in 1997.
Read on to check out our top Middlesbrough v Man City tips…
Note that all markets are in 90 mins.
Boro may be in somewhat of a freefall in the Premier League, and they now find themselves in the relegation zone, but they have a brilliant record against Man City.
In the Premier League era, they’ve won 14 of their 26 meetings in all competitions – losing just six times.
Even since the Citizens became one of the world’s biggest clubs, Teesside team Boro beat them 2-0 in the 2014/15 FA Cup and drew 1-1 this season in the top flight at the Etihad.
On top of that, Pep Guardiola’s men also shared the spoils in their last Premier League match with Stoke City.
Backing another draw in normal time is a very tasty 7/2 price with betway.
Aguero to score first
Sergio Aguero will be determined to get back on the scoresheet after failing to fire against the Potters on Wednesday.
With 23 goals this season, though, including three in three in the FA Cup, it’s hard not to back the Argentine.
Aguero also opened the scoring against Middlesbrough this season in the 1-1 draw.
He’s 13/5 with Paddy Power to break the deadlock once more.
Both teams to score
At this stage in the FA Cup, no team will be taking the tournament lightly.
Boro will be raring to go in a bid to get their confidence back.
As mentioned above, Aitor Karanka’s men scored against City back in November, and have a number of attacking talent at their disposal.
Even-money odds with Paddy Power again say that both Boro and the Citizens will score in 90 minutes.
