Barnsley vs Brentford
England – Championship
Date: Sunday, 29 September 2019
Kick-off at 13:30 UK/ 14:30 CET
Venue: Oakwell (Barnsley).
Barnsley is a new addition to this competition after they managed to get promoted at the end of last season. But the effects of their life in the lower division is surely on display. So far, the squad has managed a single win, and they have scored the least number of goals of all the cavalries in contention.
In that regards, the players will have to heavily rely on the home advantage as Brentford comes visiting.
While the guests too have had their share of problems in the offensive front, they have been defensively far superior. As of now, from their eight match-days in the league, the team has let just six goals in total.

Barnsley vs Brentford Prediction
The Tykes have managed just a single win this campaign, and it had come in the first match-day, against Fulham, and that too with a 1-0 scorecard. Ever since they have been winless.
As of now, they are on an eight-game winless run, with six of them being losses. At home, they have remained winless in their last four appearances, of which three were defeats.
Opponents Brentford too have had problems, but owing to the superior performance by their backline, the team holds the upper hand here.
As such, count on the guests to narrowly register a win this weekend.
Going on, taking into account the home advantage of the Colliers, the chances for this meeting to turn into a goal-fest is very low. Also, keep in mind that eight of the last nine encounters between these two had under 2.5 goals.
Still, to be on the safe side, we’ll opt to back the U 3.5 option.
