Barnsley vs Brentford Match Preview and Predictions

Barnsley vs Brentford
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 28 April 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Oakwell Stadium (Barnsley).

The Tykes brought home zero points from last two visits to Elland Road and The City Ground. They are this still inside the danger area being just two points adrift of the safe zone with just two left to play. Can Jose Morais find the way to lead his team towards a rebound win which could prove out as crucial in terms of saving the Championship status for the next season?

The Portuguese manager will have a very complicated task in doing so as his troops are about to lock horns with the in-form Brentford side on Saturday. The Bees won four and drew one of last five league ties to get just three points away from the sixth-placed Derby County. Given they are about to take on Hull City in the last round, the playoffs are far from mission impossible for them.

Barnsley vs Brentford: Head-to-head

Teams have three wins each, while five of 11 H2H clashes ended without a winner.

Only one of last eight head to head affairs generated three or more goals.

This term’s clash at Griffin Park ended in a goalless draw.

Barnsley vs Brentford: Prediction

Brentford only conceded two goals in last five league matches and they have to be regarded favourites here, regardless of the fact this might be the last train for Tykes to catch en route to saving the second class status. The Bees also shipped just three goals in last seven league games on the road and Barnsley will definitely struggle in the final third here.

Dean Smith’s squad did well without being prolific at the other end, though, as they won three on the bounce with the same 1-0 scoreline before holding Fulham to a 1-1 draw at Craven Cottage. Barnsley, on the other side, bagged at least two in each of last three home fixtures in the Championship, but we doubt they’ll be able to keep such trend going past the rock-solid defense of Brentford’s here. We will shoot for the quality and take the away win at 1.95 as the main betting option.

Alternatively, the match importance and the fact that eight of last nine H2H games between these two sides saw the Under 2.50 goals FT pick “come in”, we’ll predict the low-scoring contest as well.

Barnsley vs Brentford: Bet Tips

Brentford to win @ 1.95

Under 2.5 goals FT @ 2.40
