Middlesbrough – Burnley Preview: Top News, Form, and Probable Lineups

You can find out the most recent news about these teams ahead of their duel here, including the possible Middlesbrough vs Burnley lineups:

Middlesbrough

With three wins, one draw, and two losses in the last six Championship rounds, Middlesbrough has been in solid form, but not in good enough form to catch up to Sheffield United in second place in the standings. There is still time for Middlesbrough to do this and secure direct promotion, but it seems realistic that they will end up in the playoffs this season.

Meanwhile, Middlesbrough remains without Matt Clarke as he is injured, but the rest of the team is in good shape.

Middlesbrough Predicted Lineup:

Steffen – Smith, Fry, Lenihan, Giles – Howson, Hackney – Forss, Akpom, Ramsey – Archer

Burnley

It has been a great season for Burnley as they sit on top of the standings in Championship and we will see them back in Premier League next season, but Burnley fans will be hoping for more great football until the end of this one. So, we don't see Burnley slowing down until the very end of the league.

The team is currently without injured Darko Churlinov only, with the rest of the team in great shape.

Burnley Predicted Lineup:

Muric – Roberts, Harwood-Bellis, Beyer, Maatsen – Cullen, Brownhill – Benson, Tella, Zaroury – Obafemi

Player to Watch: Chuba Akpom

Even though we don't expect Middlesbrough to win this game, we expect them to score in it and that's why Chuba Akpom as our player to watch in this match.

After all, the English winger is one of the best players this season in the Championship and he will most likely finish as the top goalscorer as well since he scored 24 goals until now.
