Barnsley vs Nottingham Forest Prediction & Match Preview

Barnsley vs Nottingham Forest
England – Championship
Date: Sunday, 19 July 2020
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Oakwell (Barnsley)

Barnsley is badly in need of wins to still keep their chances alive for next season. But this also depends on the remaining results of Luton Town and Hull City. In their most recent league action, they faced the topper Leeds and lost by one goal.

Forest is finding it hard to get all three points from a game. Currently, they are winless in four matches on the trot. The last two games against Preston and Swansea ended as draws. They have had problems in defense in these past weeks which has prevented them from getting further up the table.

Barnsley vs Nottingham Forest: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Forest has a two-match winning streak going on against this opposition.
  • They have three wins and two defeats to Barnsley in the last five head to head matches.
  • More than 2.5 goals were scored in three of those five matches across all venues.
  • Both sides have two wins each in their last five clashes at this ground.
  • More than 2.5 goals came in three of those five meetings here.
  • Both sides found the back of the net in four of those games as well.

Barnsley vs Nottingham Forest: Prediction

Both these teams are going through a tough period at the moment. The remaining games are important for both of them. Barnsley has shown some character to fight for their place in next seasons Championship. The match against Leeds would have been tough for any opposition. They have won two recent head to head games against this opposition.

Even though the visitors have no wins in four consecutive matches on the road, they never lost any of them. In fact, they are unbeaten in six away games on the trot. So I am backing a Double Chance for either a draw or the visitors getting a narrow win.

Barnsley has found the net in four meetings with this opposition at this ground. They have scored past teams like Blackburn and West Brom at home this season. Also, the visitors have conceded at least a goal in all four previous away games. So we can expect goals at both ends of the pitch on Sunday.
