Middlesbrough booked their place in this round with a penalty shootout success at Old Trafford in the last round and they go into this fixture unbeaten in their last eight home matches (W7 D1). Middlesbrough currently sit second place in the Championship and have kept a clean sheet in nine of their 18 matches this season whilst conceding just 12 goals, the third lowest in the table. Seven of those clean sheets have come at the Riverside Stadium meaning they have conceded in just two matches at home this season (0-1 Bristol City, 3-1 Brentford) and they've kept a clean sheet in each of their last six home fixtures. It's not only defensively where Middlesbrough are strong, QPR & Burnley (17) are the only sides to have scored more goals at home than Middlesbrough (16) in the championship too. No Middlesbrough player has scored more than four goals in the championship this season (Diego Fabbrini & David Nugent), though Uruguayan forward Christian Stuani has seven goals in 14 appearances in all competitions.
Are going to win.
