Middlesbrough take on the visitors Hull City in the round 41 match of English Championship. The match will be played om Saturday, April 9th at Riverside Stadium (Middlesbrough).
The hosts did not deserve defeat in the last match with Fulham, but Mitrovic made the difference once again this season. It is not shameful to lose to the leader. All Middlesbrough needs to do next is to gain as many points as possible in the future. I don’t see any special preconditions for their loss in the match against Hull City, as Boro’s decisive matches will be against Bournemouth and Huddersfield. The ability of Walder’s team in the fight for the sixth line will depend on the result of these meetings. In eight recent matches at home, the hosts won all eight. Average scored goals are just over two goals per match.

Can Hull City prevent a defeat? First, the visitors have no objectives in the finish the season, a comfortable gap from the relegation zone of twelve points allows them to painlessly accept any defeat. Secondly, the tigers in the mediocre and inconsistent form of a typical mid-table side of Championship. The visitors can give a good fight, but it is often followed by two or three failures in a row. And the matches with the leaders of the championship of McCann’s team are often difficult. Maintaining a residence permit after a short stay in the First League – such a task was set by the management before the start of the season. And it seems to be achieved.
Surprisingly, Hull City have not lost away five games in a row and have not even conceded in the last three. QPR and Sheffield United could do nothing. Middlesbrough even lost in the reverse fixture. Middlesbrough look solid recently. Losing two points is not in the interests of the hosts.
