Barnsley vs Norwich: Preview and Predictions

Barnsley vs Norwich
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 3rd March 2018

Barnsley have clawed their way out of the drop zone for now. The team went through a huge slump of form which saw them drop all the way down from mid-table to the drop-zone. Last 2 games the team picked up 4 points which is a huge improvement for the teams form.

The Tykes will be hoping to continue the good impressions on Saturday. Last game they went close to taking 3 points against another relegation rival – Hull. Barnsley was leading most of the game but the Tigers managed to equalize through Dawson sharing the points.

Farke looks to be turning tides at Norwich. The team is having a poor campaign overall but the team now looks stabilized and without near danger of relegation. A few victories coupled with many draws have helped the team climb to 13th place in the middle of the table 17 points above the relegation zone. The next goal I front of the Canaries should be converting the many draws they do to victories. The team can play now without pressure for relegation and this may help the players perform freely.

Barnsley vs Norwich: Predictions

Barnsley may look a bit improving but this happens mostly on the road. The team can defend and try to hit on the counter there but struggles at home when they need to organize the play. This was clearly shown in their defeat against Burton at home and their victory away at Birmingham. Norwich will play patiently and won’t be going reckless up front. The game shouldn’t have many opportunities as both sides will prefer to avoid the defeat than going reckless up front. Norwich are slight favourites in a game which shouldn’t offer much goals.
