Barnsley are having an eventful season in Championship after earning promotion from League One last season in dramatic fashion. They started the season with 5 wins from their first 7 matches. But this has turned upside down as they failed to win in their last 4 matches, losing 3 during the process. They are currently 10th in the league and will be eyeing all three points from Fulham who are on an equally bad run.

Fulham, who started their season in style with back to back wins against Newcastle and Preston have managed just 1 win from their next 9 matches. They haven’t won their last 6 matches, avoiding defeats on 3 occasions during the same period. They are currently 14th in the league table, a region around where they spend majority of last season.

Barnsley vs Fulham: Prediction

Both sides are in particularly no good form and are coming on the back of a win-less runs. Also this is the first meeting between these two sides since over 15 years. So we like to look away from the head-to-head stats and solely concentrate on the form analysis.

Barnsley’s success in the earlier part of the season was based on their goal-scoring prowess, which has now diminished. They scored 18 goals in the first matches at an average of 2.5 goals per match. But the last four matches have seen a total of 3 goals at an average of 0.75, while they conceded 7. Fulham won’t concede a lot of goals and the same time they have difficulties in scoring as well.

All of the above analysis is pointing towards a low scoring draw. We believe under 2.5 goals is a safe bet for this fixture, with a full-time draw at 3.40 is equally good.

Barnsley vs Fulham: Prediction

  • Under 2.5 goals at 1/1 (2.00)
  • Full-Time Result in Draw at 12/5 (3.40).
  • Correct Full-Time Score: 1-1 at 11/2 (6.50).
