Middlesbrough were on the receiving end of a 4-0 thrashing in their last visit to AFC Bournemouth towards the end of last season, however we expect the Teessiders to fare somewhat better when they travel to the south coast in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday evening. Middlesbrough's form in that April meeting was pretty dire and their subsequent defeat at Dean Court was their seventh in nine outings as they moved ever closer to the inevitable relegation at the end of the campaign.

Garry Monk is now the man in the hot-seat at Boro and he has a fresh new squad at his disposal following a much-needed overhaul during the summer. Indeed while they haven't exactly set the Championship alight this season, they are proving much more difficult to beat at this lower level and they have replicated this decent form into the Carabao Cup with wins-to-nil over Scunthorpe United and Aston Villa along the way.

For their part, Bournemouth have been struggling on all fronts this season although their Premier League woes were eased slightly by their 2-1 weekend win at Stoke City. They nevertheless remain second from bottom in the top-flight and having only just edged past Championship strugglers Birmingham City 2-1 and winning on penalties against Brighton in the previous rounds of the competition, we certainly wouldn't be surprised to see the home side come unstuck when they lock horns with the Teessiders on Tuesday, the /free-bets going 17/4 on the visitors to win.

This is an excellent price on Middlesbrough, especially since Eddie Howe's men have been having a few difficulties in front of goal this season. Indeed we don't expect to see the nets bulge too often on Tuesday evening and as such we'll also be going for Under 2.5 Total Goals on this occasion.
