Barnsley vs Derby Prediction & Match Preview

Barnsley vs Derby
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 2 October 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue:  Oakwell (Barnsley).

Barnsley have been heading south ever since their opening day victory against Fulham and are currently sporting a very dismal nine-match winless streak, that too in all competitions. The home team failed to make a difference in their previous clash at home, which saw them admit defeat at the hands of Brentford by a whopping 3-1 scoreline.

Derby on the other had a change in fortune in their respective clash against Birmingham last week and managed to pull off a narrow 3-2 victory by the end of the ninety minutes. The visitors are unbeaten in their last three clashes as well and will be hoping to pick up back to back victories for the first time this season when they travel to Oakwell.

With Barnsley on a three-match losing streak at the moment, Derby are the favorites to move up the ladder this week.

Barnsley vs Derby Head to head (h2h)

  • Derby have been registering the win in their last two games in running.
  • Three of their previous four matches have seen goals down each end.
  • Both teams have kept a clean sheet apiece just once in their past five clashes.
  • None of their last four encounters have featured under 2.5 goals on the charts.

Barnsley vs Derby Prediction

The hosts have been at the losing end in their last three games in a row, all of which have seen admit defeat by no less than a two-goal margin. Their counterparts for the week have lost just once on the road in the new campaign, while one of their only two victories so far have also come in one of their outings.

Furthermore, the visitors walked away with the bragging rights in hand in their last visit to this venue as well. So, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Derby at the end of the ninety minutes.

However, two of the last three outings for the guests have seen them salvage just a point in each. Taking into account three of their previous five head to head meetings here have also seen both teams inseparable at the last blast of the whistle, the safest punt would have to be a double chance.

In addition, Barnsley have been consistent in finding the back of the net in three of their previous home games. Considering that there has been no dearth of goals in four of their last six head to head matchups here either, a high scoring clash is certainly on the cards this Wednesday.
