Liverpool vs. Middlesbrough – Best Predictions and Tips

4th place Liverpool host relegated team Middlesbrough in the last round of the English Premier League season. Liverpool are the big favourites to clinch the 4th spot behind Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester City. They should have enough to beat Boro at Anfield Road in the last round and earn a lucrative Champions League position. Liverpool have won eight of their ten Premier League final day games at Anfield, scoring 27 goals in the process. Anything but a victory here will leave their 4th place exposed as the Gunners are just one point behind them. They are winless in their last three home fixtures but they bounced back last round with an incredible 4-0 win away at West Ham. They’ve lost just home matches all season long earning 38 points in 18 home matches. They were unlucky to be without the services of their main striker Sadio Mane injured for such a long time. Jurgen Klopp is waiting the summer break to bring fresh legs in the team and transfer some star European players. The newspapers are speculating an interest for Liverpool’s Phelippe Coutinho from Barcelona, but it looks like he will remain part of Klopp’s master plan for the next season and will not leave the team. He is very important for the team and he showed that once again last round against West Ham scoring 2 goals and delivering an assist.

Middlesbrough saw their relegation confirmed when they were beaten 3-0 by Chelsea two rounds ago. They have nothing to fight for, they don’t need to push for the win and that might affect their play. They have failed to find the back on the net in seven of their last eight away games losing 6 matches during the process. They have the worst attack in the EPL with 27 goals scored in 37 rounds winning just five games this term. Boro have lost five of their last six EPL away fixtures on the final day. They have been really bad all season long and can have no complaints about returning to The Championship.

We expect Liverpool to finish the season in style and score at least 3 goals in this clash. Boro will try to put their best effort to pull off an upset before heading back to the second tier. We don’t believe that Middlesbrough will contribute to the scoreboard let’s not go in that direction as you never know when to expect a goal. We will not touch the winners market because the highest set of odds offered for a home win by the green listed bookmaker Bet365 are @1.37. Middlesbrough are priced @21 with Betfair.
