Coral’s bet of the day

  • Middlesbrough have won last three league meetings with Burnley 1-0
  • Boro have not lost at Turf Moor since April 2011
  • Visitors on run of six successive Championship victories

Boro 16/5 to overcome Burnley to nil

Brighten up your Tuesday by getting involved with Coral’s promising bet of the day, which comes from a crucial Championship crunch clash between current league leaders Middlesbrough and close second-placed challengers Burnley.

Fulham v Middlesbrough - Sky Bet Championship - Craven Cottage

Boro enter this potentially decisive second tier match-up on a superb run of form and will be confident of securing another three points on their quest for automatic promotion to the Premier League, making them a tasty 16/5 to triumph to nil this time out.

Aitor Karanka’s Northeast outfit are currently just two points ahead of the Clarets in the race for top spot, and they know another strong showing at Turf Moor would edge them towards being crowned champions this season.

Karanka’s Northeast men on fire

The current Championship leaders have enjoyed a blistering run of form in recent weeks, having superbly secured six successive league victories since the end of March, seeing them rally to top spot in the standings.

Among those six consecutive wins, four have been won without conceding a goal, proving both Boro’s astute attacking abilities and solid defensive capabilities at this crucial stage of the campaign.

Middlesbrough v Huddersfield Town - Sky Bet Championship - Riverside Stadium

As well as their recent sublime streak, Karanka’s men will hold a great deal of confidence based on previous fixture meetings with hosts Burnley, as they have not been defeated domestically in five clashes.

The visitors also enjoy their visits to Turf Moor, having not tasted defeat there since April 2011, while the club’s three latest encounters with Burnley have ended in narrow 1-0 victories in their favour. With that in mind, make sure not to miss out on Coral’s latest bet of the day for another Boro win to nil here!
