Barnsley vs Sheffield United: Preview and Predictions

Barnsley vs Sheffield United
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 7 April 2018
Kick-Off at 12:15 UK
Venue: Oakwell Stadium (Barnsley).

Sheffield United came up with a quite strong display against the second placed Cardiff City on Monday evening, but they were unlucky to drop the victory by conceding a stoppage-time leveller at Bramall Lane. At the end, it was the third subsequent draw for the Blades who are still outside of the top six spots in the league ladder. A win at the Oakwell could well get them right in.

The hosts, however, have calculations of their own. They are desperate to clinch the spoils and garb a survival lifeline. The safe zone is currently four points away and Sheffield United’s visit could be one of the last trains to catch for Jose Morais and his men. The Portuguese manager will be hoping to see improvements in his team’s back line as the Tykes have been pretty easy to break down lately. The hosts have shipped at least two goals in four of last five league affairs. This includes a 2-2 draw on Monday evening against Bristol City.

Sheffield’s Leon Clarke will definitely be the man to keep an eye on. He was the one who broke the deadlock on Monday against the Bluebirds netting his 16th goal of the campaign. Given the mentioned holes in Barnsley’s defensive line, backing him to score anytime might look to be a decent betting call here.

Barnsley vs Sheffield United: Head-to-head

Draw has been by far the most common of the outcomes in the history if H2H games between these two sides.

It happened on 12 occasions in 27 matches.

Interestingly, none of the previous five head to head ties has seen three or more goals.

Barnsley vs Sheffield United: Prediction

Sheffield United ply defensive football, but we can’t ignore the 1.83 odds offered for the BTTS option knowing that Barnsley have been way too easy to break down lately.

We’ll thus combine the BTTS bet with Leon Clarke to keep the good form going and score anytime eat the odds of 2.90.
