Barnsley vs Brentford Prediction & Match Preview

Barnsley vs Brentford
English Championship
Date: Tuesday, 24 November 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Oakwell, Barnsley.

One of the most interesting mid-week clashes in the Championship is happening at Oakwell where in-form Barnsley welcomes Brentford FC. Visitors were considered as one of top favorites to win the league before the season even started. Their fans are surely in despair because of current standings, as the team sits in 11th place with 17 points.

The distance from the top is not that big though, so one streak of four or five victories would surely get them high. Can that streak start on Tuesday night? Barnsley have won four out of the last five divisional games, so they surely shouldn’t be underestimated. In terms of the odds, Brentford FC are warm favorites for the win at 2.10 rate.

Barnsley vs Brentford Prediction

Even though the start of new campaign was slow, it seems like head manager Valerien Ismael found the winning formula. Barnsley have collected 12 points in the last five divisional games, losing only to Cardiff City on the road. They were able to beat QPR, Watford, Derby County and Nottingham Forest while keeping clean sheet in all duels. Abovementioned loss was the only one in last eight appearances. They are currently 13th with 16 points.

As for their opposition, Brentford are sitting one position and one point ahead of the hosts. Even though The Bees are undefeated in the last five outings, fans were expecting more than seven points from those encounters. Both teams have been consistent when it comes to scoring lately, so going for the BTTS seems like the most reasonable option.
