Barnsley vs Middlesbrough
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 26 February 2022
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Barnsley are not pulling up any trees so far this season. They remains at the rock bottom of the table. It’s on rare occasion that they have recorded a positive outcome this league. They also possess a struggling attacking and defensive lineup.
However, they have managed to record two victories recently. Most recent of those recorded in the last Championship fixture against Hull away from home. Such a run will not count much as they are going to face Middlesbrough in their upcoming fixture.
Meanwhile, Middlesbrough have been recording positive displays in frequent intervals of time. As a result of such recordings, they entered the safe zone. They will be eyeing for a top spot while occupying the sixth spot on the table currently.
They have won three of their past 5 league fixtures and have collected 10 points from those fixtures to add up to a total of 52 points on the table. They will be having positive spirits following their current form.
By the looks of things, we see Middlesbrough possessing a better form in the league when compared to Bansley. As such, expect a win for the guests at Oakwell in this Championship fixture on Saturday.

Barnsley vs Middlesbrough Prediction
Barnsley have been following a dreadful form in the league of late. Despite of their previous positive recording, they are winless since many games. Such a set of negative results will only help them to enter this fixture with lowest of spirits.
On the other side, Middlesbrough have been enjoying a decent form in the league lately. But they possess an average form on road. However, such a run will count only little in this fixture.
Therefore, we expect a win for the visiting side at Oakwell on Saturday. Considering the above facts, we expect a one-sided low-scoring affair.
