Middlesbrough vs Chelsea Betting Tip and Predictions. In the only game on Sunday of Round 12, in Premier League, Middlesbrough host Chelsea at Riverside Stadium. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Middlesbrough vs Chelsea.
Middlesbrough promoted in Premier League last season and their main goal is to stay in the best football league in England and avoid relegation. They have only one point more than the first team in the relegation zone, so they have to start collecting points, as soon as possible, in order to move up on the table. The match against Chelsea maybe isn’t the best moment to take some point(s), but they have nothing to lose and will try to stay unbeaten. Home side bought Negredo for this season, but he is disappointing and scored only one goal. Boro have one of the worst attacks in league and it will be hard for them to score against team from London, who have one of the best defence in Premier League. Home team last time beat Chelsea 10 years ago and they will be more than happy if they manage to repeat that success, but Premier League is unpredictable, so everything is possible.
Home side miss Daniel Ayala, while George Friend is doubtful. Good news for Middlesbrough is that Gaston Ramirez is back in the team after suspension. On the other side, visitors have full squad available.

Middlesbrough vs Chelsea Prediction
Home side desperately need points and they will try to do their best in order to make good result. Visitors are favorites to win this game, but It won’t be an easy job. I expect interesting game between Middlesbrough vs Chelsea and at least three goals.
