Barnsley vs Birmingham City
Date: Tuesday, 11 February 2020
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Oakwell, Barnsley
There is a lot of mid-week action coming up in the English Championship! Barnsley will tirelessly continue with their efforts to exit the relegation zone on Tuesday when they host Birmingham City.
Visitors have been on fire lately, winning three out of the last five divisional games and climbing up to the 15th place. This is only one of the reasons why we were surprised to see them marked as the underdogs here priced at 2.90 for the win.
Barnsley have spent a lot of time hammered to the last position on the table. A couple of victories in mid-December 2019 were refreshing, but the squad continued to struggle.
Barnsley have won only one out of the last eight matches in the Championship (home against Huddersfield Town). They don’t have much choice but to chase three points now, as Charlton Athletic (the first team above red line) is eight points away.
When it comes to matches of these sides during the weekend, Birmingham City easily defeated Bristol City on the road 3-1, while Barnsley drew to Sheffield Wednesday at home 1-1.
Barnsley vs Birmingham City: Head-to-head
The first head to head clash between them this season at St Andrews was played in August 2019.
Birmingham have won it comfortably 2-0 thanks to the goals scored by Jutkiewicz and Alvaro Gimenez.
Overall these two teams played 31 times total, with Birmingham winning 15 games while losing only 8.
Barnsley vs Birmingham City: Prediction
Barnsley will have to go aggressive here and hunt an important win. That should leave a lot of space in the back and result in a high-scoring game. Both teams to score should be a big banker.
As for the full time winner, we will go with the away win.
