Burnley vs Barnsley Prediction

This is a completely lopsided tie with not even a fighting chance for the visiting team. Barnsley plays in the League One, which comes third in the English Football hierarchy, whereas the hosts, Burnley, is a part of the prestigious Premier League, widely regarded as the best football league in the world. With the added advantage of the home status, Burnley will easily procure the win here, and progress to the fourth round of the competition.

Burnley’s only loss against Barnsley, at this venue, came in 2008, when the latter was an entirely different team. If not for that loss, Burnley boasts a 100% unbeaten record at this stadium against Barnsley.

Barnsley scored a total of one goal in their last three away matches and a total of one goal in their last four h2h games at the Turf Moor. Burnley, who narrowly missed out on a chance to play in the Europa League main competition this season, will have no trouble in dispatching this League One side with a huge loss.

Expect Burnley to win both halves and to score more than 2.5 goals in the game.
