Harry Wilson came to Cardiff’s rescue against his former loanee club Bournemouth on Wednesday night, equalising midway through an action-packed second-half. He was comfortably their best player on a night of fine margins and head coach Neil Harris will be hoping for a better collective display at home to Middlesbrough this weekend.

Neil Warnock’s side held onto an important 1-0 away win at Bristol City’s expense on Tuesday night, courtesy of George Saville’s second-half winner.

Can Boro continue their five-match unbeaten streak or will recent H2H history repeat itself this weekend? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Cardiff vs Middlesbrough Betting Tips

Boro missed two big chances and had goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli booked in stoppage-time for time-wasting as they edged a 1-0 away win over Bristol City on Tuesday. They snapped a three-match winless streak, while earning their first clean sheet against the hosts since August 2018 by doing so, a morale-boosting result to say the least.

Patrick Roberts (on-loan from Manchester City) acquitted himself well on his debut, creating a joint game-high three key passes, while there was encouraging displays elsewhere. Perhaps none moreso than Northern Ireland international George Saville, picking the right moment to score his first Championship goal of 2020.

Daniel Bentley’s short goal-kick to Taylor Moore invited pressure as he sensed danger before pouncing.

Within moments, he curled an effort into the bottom corner. He’ll be hoping for more of that against Cardiff, who did well to earn a hard-fought point against Bournemouth 24 hours later.

The Cherries dominated possession (67%), had 17 shots, missed big chances and also hit the woodwork. Wilson’s low drive beyond Asmir Begovic stung Jason Tindall’s side, who deserved better. Can they channel that energy to earn all three points here?

Cardiff vs Middlesbrough Correct Score Predictions

This fixture is tough as both emerged with credit for contrasting reasons after their midweek results – only one point separates them at this early juncture. Interestingly though, Cardiff have won four successive H2H meetings against Boro – who’ve failed to keep a clean sheet in their last seven matches against the Bluebirds.

That’s a significant statistic, so I’m predicting BTTS here.
