Barnsley vs Burton
England – League 1
Date: Tuesday, 19 February 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Oakwell (Barnsley).
Barnsley are well-placed to earned automatic promotion from League 1 this season. They sit at second with a 5 point lead over Portsmouth after a 2-1 win against Wycombe this weekend.
The Tykes have a lot to show for in the run to they haven’t lost a league game since 8th of December. Theis put the team managed by Daniel Stendel is on a 12 match unbeaten run. And to further boost their morale, they notched 6 straight wins at home.
Meantime, Burton is sitting at the middle of the table, yet their promotion chances are still alive. with their distance to top six an achievable 11 points.
However, we are far from impressed with Burton’s current run of results, despite they hold a 5 match unbeaten streak. Only 1 win came during the period with the remaining 5 ended in draws. It remained to be seen if the series of dropped points come to haunt them at the end of the season.

Barnsley vs Burton Prediction
The form guide clearly indicates the fact that Barnsley are clear favourites to win this league fixture against Burton.
The six consecutive home wins Daniel Stendel’s men bagged since Christmas and Burton’s inability to win matches at their home turf and on the road strengthen this.
However, I do not see any clear parameters to put my money on btts, even though their last three h2h meetings ended up with both teams scoring.
So, I leave you with a home win as my best recommendation for this League 1 fixture.
