Derby County vs Barnsley Championship Prediction by LeagueLane

Derby County vs Barnsley
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 7 November 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Pride Park (Derby).

The winless streak continues to the sixth game in the championship for Derby County this season. Things don’t look good for the Rams in the table at the 23rd spot with just 6 points from ten clashes. Phillip Cocu will try to pick up his team from the 0-1 loss at home to the likes of QPR in the previous league clash.

Barnsley tried their best to stay in their unbeaten route in the campaign, but Cardiff had other plans for them in the last fixture. The 3-0 loss on the road to Cardiff will affect the players, as they get ready for another trip in their championship schedule. Still, the Tykes are four points ahead of the home team.

The match is sizing to be a tight encounter, probably leading to a 1-1 draw by ninety minutes. At 6.00 odds, the correct score at 1-1 is the most likely result for the upcoming match. The reason to back this is the overall form of both sides in the campaign so far this season.

Derby hasn’t won a home match for the past 11 clashes across all major contests. Meanwhile, they will come in with an unbeaten streak against Barnsley for the past five clashes in their h2h history. In addition to that, they have 11 wins and just 1 loss in their h2h fixtures at home with the Tykes.

The tip for BTTS will work perfectly, as both sides are likely to see the back of the net. Along with that, over 1.5 goals will probably be the best bet for the punters considering the expected result in the encounter.
