Barnsley vs Blackburn
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 30 June 2020
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Oakwell (Barnsley).
The Reds need to win all remaining matches and hope Luton and Huddersfield lose some of theirs. With 38 points in 39 games they are at the bottom of the table. They have shown some signs of a comeback in the two recent games.
The highlight of recent weeks was the away win to QPR. But Barnsley need to make amends to their poor home form.
Blackburn is yet another team in the top 10 aiming for a chance in the playoffs. But the recent defeat to Wigan has prevented them from replacing the struggling Preston in 7th spot.
With only one win coming in their last 5 league matches Blackburn is slowly fading from the form they had previously. This is mainly due to the inability of their defence to cope up with pressure.
Barnsley vs Blackburn: Head-to-head (h2h)
Both sides have two wins each in their 5 previous meetings.
More than 2.5 goals were scored in three of those 5 games across all venues.
Both teams found the back of the net in three of those matches as well.
The visitors have two wins and a defeat in their last 5 trips to this ground.
Four of those five head to head clashes here had goals from both teams.
Over 2.5 goals were also scored in three of those recent clashes here.
Barnsley vs Blackburn: Prediction
The home side has more draws in their home games than wins or defeats. They are currently on a 2-match winless run. But despite the defeats the away win to QPR and the goalless draw at home to Millwall will give them hope.
The head to head stats give none of these teams the upper hand. Since the visitors have failed to win against much inferior teams, they will be a bit sloppy in the field.
Blackburn is busy giving goals away too cheaply. They have conceded 8 goals in their 4 latest league fixtures. Thus, Barnsley has a chance to break the out-of-form backline on Tuesday.
At the same time, I am backing a Double Chance for a draw or the hosts winning with both sides getting in the score sheet.
