Barnsley vs Huddersfield Town
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 26 December 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
The Tykes have been on a blistering run in the past several match-days, that their only losses have come against some of the best teams in the competition.
They have also been scoring goals pretty consistently, and they have been on a formidable run at home as well.
Meanwhile, the Terriers have struggled to show a semblance of consistency throughout this season, and especially on the road they have been on a dismal run.
As such, it’s inferred that Barnsley will have the upper hand this weekend at the Oakwell.
However, note that Carlos Corberan’s men have a good h2h record against this opponent, and Valerien Ismael’s men have not been that great in defense in 2020.
Moreover, goals have come in plenty in majority of h2h clashes as well.
For the reasons, expect a high-scoring thriller this weekend.
Barnsley vs Huddersfield: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Seven of the preceding nine match-ups had goals from both teams.
- Eight of the previous eleven clashes had three or more goals.
- Corberan’s men recorded seven of the last eleven overall wins.
- The last the guests failed to score at this stadium was back in 1996.
- The hosts had won the latest encounter at this venue, with a 2-1 scorecard.
Barnsley vs Huddersfield: Prediction
Ismael’s men lost 2-0 on the road the last match-day, against Swansea. In the meantime, the Terriers registered a 2-0 win at home against Watford.
The Tykes had also won three of the preceding four games, and at home they had won five of the preceding seven appearances.
They have also lost just twice at home since the second week of September – against Brentford, and Bournemouth – both of whom are placed in the top-four of the table.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in eight of the last thirteen overall fixtures, and remained so in 20 of the former 24 road trips.
As such, expect Barnsley to win at least one of the halves this weekend.
However, note that Corberan’s men have a better overall h2h record, and also take into account the fact that Ismael’s men have not kept a clean sheet in the past eight straight games, and not once at home since the last week of November.
Likely, the BTTS seems to have a high probability of making good returns.
