Bristol City vs Barnsley Match preview

Even though Bristol City has been dropping points in the league lately, they have managed to win against Wigan in their previous encounter with a 0-2 scoreline.

After three winless games, Barnsley also managed to find all three points in their prior clash in the league with Huddersfield at home in a 2-1 encounter.

Another three points would put Barnsley away from the relegation zone for the time being. Meanwhile, Bristol City will need it to get closer to the top six spots in the table.

Bristol City vs Barnsley Prediction

In the current league table, Bristol City does have an advantage over Barnsley in terms of overall performance. Clearly, the Robins have a 17 points lead over Barnsley in the league table.

Apart from that, the host does enjoy their home ground advantage. Bristol City has won five of their 13 league home matches so far. Even so, they have lost only four of the 13 attempts.

On the other hand, Barnsley is the second-worst away team in the campaign currently. They have managed only one win in their 13 away games until now.

Having lost nine of their 13 trips on the road in the campaign, Barnsley stands a rare chance against the Robins. So, the home team has more chance of winning the game.

However, since Bristol City has shown a mixed form at home, it is safer to go with a double chance in the clash. Also, expect the total score to be lesser than 3.5 goals in ninety minutes.
