Barnsley vs Swansea Prediction

The Swans are at the 12th position on the table having 6 wins and 6 draws. They have 24 points in total while losing 6 games. A late equalizer from Blackpool made their last game to end in a draw.

The hosts are in the red zone having lost 11 games of the 18 matches played. They won only 2 matches and drawn 5 while having 11 points. They lost the 2 previous fixtures against Fulham and Hull.

Since the new manager’s arrival in October the Tykes have won 23 times having taken just 4 points from their opening 7. Not only that, but Ismael introduced an intense style of play which will be boosted by the break they’ve had since the season ended.

Swansea have won just one of their last 5 Championship away games while Barnsley has failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 10 games.

The Tykes have never won against the Swans in history and their last 6 h2h matches saw 9 goals in total with an average of 1.5 goals per game.

Barnsley are on a high and they’re the only side in the Play-Offs who didn’t have huge promotion expectations at the start of the season. That should ease the pressure on them, while Swansea try to improve their form and deliver a Wembley return. Anyway, scoring from both sides can be seen at Oakwell this Wednesday.
