Southampton 1-0 Middlesbrough: Boufal stunner seals Saints win

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 197

The Morocco international netted his first Premier League goal for the club as Boro were edged out in a tight encounter at St Mary's Stadium.

A superb strike from Sofiane Boufal helped Southampton to a first home Premier League win over Middlesbrough for 20 years as they claimed a 1-0 victory at St Mary's Stadium on Sunday.

The winger had yet to score in the league following his big-money move from Lille during the close-season, but he broke his duck in fine fashion with a sweet long-range strike into the top-left corner early in the second half to secure the points.

Southampton were desperate to return to winning ways after last week's 3-0 defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace and their Europa League elimination on Thursday.

History was against the hosts, though, with Southampton having not beaten Middlesbrough at home in the Premier League since September 1996.
