Middlesbrough vs Leeds United

, KO: 20:00 Apr 22, 2024, Riverside Stadium
Leeds United

Leeds United travel to Middlesbrough for a Monday night Championship fixture as they look to snap out of a difficult run. Leeds have been out of sorts lately and with Boro plagued by too many draws at the moment, a stalemate could be in the cards here.

Middlesbrough have shown some resurgence in recent weeks as they look to make a late push for the promotion playoffs. However, that may be a bridge too far as they sit ninth on the standings, nine points off the top six with three matches left to play.

Boro have looked decent lately as they are unbeaten in their last nine Championship matches, claiming five wins in that run. However, four of the last six fixtures have ended in draws, including a 1-1 scoreline at title chasers Ipswich Town last time out.

The good news for Middlesbrough heading into Monday’s clash is that things have been fairly smooth at the Riverside Stadium. Michael Carrick’s men have won three and drawn one in their last four home matches, claiming a 2-0 victory over Swansea City in their previous fixture in front of their fans.

It has been a tough couple of weeks for Leeds United, who appear to be sharing a stumbling bug with the other title/promotion chasers. They have picked up just one win from their last five matches and are currently third on the standings.

Things have been so difficult for Leeds United that they have also failed to score in their last two Championship matches. Daniel Farke’s men suffered a 1-0 home defeat to Blackburn Rovers last time out in the Championship.

Having played at Elland Road in their last two matches, Leeds United will be on the road on Monday. They have lost just once in their last seven away matches, although two of the last four fixtures in that run have ended in draws.

How the bookies view it

Despite their recent struggles, Leeds United are still considered overwhelming favourites among the bookies with a win priced at 4/5 by Unibet. A victory for Middlesbrough is priced at 16/5 by William Hill while Betfred is offering odds of 3/1 for a draw.

Recent Head to head

Leeds United have dominated recent meetings with Middlesbrough and have won the last three matches. The Whites claimed a 3-2 victory in the reverse fixture back in December.

Players to watch

Emmanuel Latte Lath often carries the attacking threat for Middlesbrough and has 12 Championship goals this season. The forward netted a brace in the reverse fixture and is priced at 3/1 by Paddy Power to find the net on Monday.

Crysencio Summerville may be in the middle of a goal drought but still remains the biggest attacking threat for Leeds United having scored 17 times this season. The forward was also on target in the reverse fixture and is priced at 43/20 to get on the score sheet.

Anything else catch the eye?

It was a five goal thriller in the reverse fixture and another high-scoring encounter could be on the cards here. Over 3.5 goals is priced at 2/1 by Paddy Power, over 2.5 goals is priced at 4/5 by Unibet, who is also offering 8/11 on both teams to score.

Leeds United have seen more goals after the break in two of their last three matches and a repeat is priced at 11/10 by Paddy Power.
