Brentford vs Barnsley Prediction & Match Preview

Brentford vs Barnsley
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 22 July 2020
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Griffin Park (London)

Brentford still has the chance of getting that automatic promotion. But the recent defeat to Stoke has shaken both players and management alike. They could have replaced West Brom in the second place. With just a match to go, they have to end the season strong and hope the latter loses theirs.

The away team pulled off a splendid win over Nottingham Forest in their last league fixture. This was their first win in five previous league games. Even if the hosts are low on morale it will be a miracle if Barnsley gets three points in this upcoming game.

Brentford vs Barnsley: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Barnsley has two wins and a defeat in their last five meetings.
  • Fewer than 2.5 goals were scored in four of those five games.
  • The reverse fixture ended as a 1-3 win for Brentford.
  • The host has three wins and two defeats in seven head to head games at this ground.
  • Both sides found the back of the net in five of those seven games here.

Brentford vs Barnsley: Prediction

Brentford is one of the most dominant teams in this season of the Championship. However the same cannot be said about Barnsley. The visitors are losing games consistently. The recent win against Nottingham was more or less lucky as Forest is suffering defeats to most teams in recent weeks. I think Brentford will get going from the starting whistle and will dominate the possession. They are the highest-scoring team in the league with 79 goals scored in 25 games. But the visitors have scored only 47 goals. So there may not be goals from both these sides on Wednesday.

More than 20 matches that both sides played were high scoring games. Brentford has scored two or more goals in five recent games at this ground. The same trend can be seen in their head to head games here also. Considering the reverse fixture also had a score with more than 2.5 goals, we can expect a similar score in this one too.

Brentford vs Barnsley: Betting Tips

  • Both teams to score: No @ 1.95 (10/11).
  • Over 2.5 goals @ 1.66 (2/3).
