Our football match prediction:
Riverside Stadium will host Saturday’s football match between Middlesbrough and Everton. The Toffees produced probably their best display of the season at the weekend, with the team rolling over Everton (6:3), but they do not want to stop now. Romelu Lukaku scored four goals in the triumph over Eddie Howe’s troops, meaning that Middlesbrough defenders should have the Belgian attacker at bay. Ronald Koeman’s men aim to move a little closer to the Champions League places and we predict that the visitors will adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s clash against Boro. Aitor Karanka’s team suffered a 1-0 loss to Tottenham at White Hart Lane, but it has to be noted that striker Marten de Roon missed a clear-cut chance to score the equalizer in the dying minutes of the game. The Boro are tough to beat at home and that is the main reason why we believe that two teams will share the spoils at Riverside Stadium.
Highlighted Player (Christian Stuani):
Christian Stuani is considered one of the best Uruguay attackers. Stuani was born on 12 October, 1986 and he began his senior career at Danubio. He impressed with the Uruguayan outfit, scoring 23 goals in 36 appearances for the club and, as a result, he became a target for a number of top European clubs. In 2008 he signed a contract with Reggina, but he failed to impress in 17 appearances for the Italian team. After spending the 2012/2013 season on loan at Espanyol, Christian Stuani signed a permanent deal with the Catalan side in 2013. Stuani scored 12 goals in 37 league appearances for Espanyol in the 2014/2015 Primera Division campaign, but at the end of the season he moved to Middlesbrough for a reported €3 million fee. The 186-cm-tall striker made his Uruguay debut on 14 November, 2012 in a friendly win over Poland. Stuani also represented la Celeste at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
Highlighted Team (Everton):
Everton are one of the two Merseyside giants that were formed back in 1878, with the club holding a long-standing rivalry with Liverpool. Everton have participated in the English top flight for a record 113 seasons, with the team competing in the English second tier in just four camaigns. The Toffees play their home matches at Goodison Park, the stadium that was opened in 1892. Everton have won the national championship nine times, with the team winning their last domestic trophy back in 1987. The Toffees have clinched five FA Cup trophies as well and it has to be noted that a victory over Manchester United in the 1994/1995 FA Cup final helped the team win their last title in the prestigious competition. Everton and Liverpool face each other in the Merseyside derby and the clash between the two local rivals has been called the Merseyside derby since 1955. In the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign Everton were hammered by Liverpool (0-4) at Anfield.
