Middlesbrough may not be pulling up any trees in the Championship this season but they could soon be tasting success off the field in the inaugural edition of FIFA Ultimate QuaranTeam.
That’s because the Boro have been installed as the new 5/1 favourites to lift the tournament set up by Leyton Orient amidst the coronavirus outbreak.
They’ll face a tough battle with Manchester City and Angers hot on their heels at 6/1 apiece, although they should go further than local rivals Newcastle United, who are 12/1 shots.
Jessica O’Reilly of Ladbrokes said: “Boro narrowly edge the betting in a three-horse race with Manchester City and Angers to be crowned as the Ultimate QuaranTeam champions.”
