Fulham vs Barnsley Prediction and Analysis

The Whites apart from a few hiccups along the way have been the most intimidating team to face in the English second flight this season. With 12 wins and 2 draws they are just 2 points behind the league leaders Bournemouth.

Barnsley’s fall from grace this season has been painful to watch for the supporters and neutrals alike as they have gone from competing in the playoffs last season to arguably the worst team this campaign. Through 2 wins and 5 draws they have added 11 points to their tally.

While Fulham squeezed a 0-1 victory against relegation-threatened Peterborough on the road, Barnsley lost against Hull City, another team in the relegation zone in a 0-2 score line at home.

While the hosts are on a 6 match winning streak, the visitors have just 1 win in their preceding 15 matches. Needless to say, Fulham are the favourites in this fixture. The question that remains to be answered is the winning margin. I have backed a -1.5 Asian Handicap in favour of the hosts.

Aleksandar Mitrovic who has emerged as one of the best strikers in Europe has scored 27 goals for club and country already this season. I have backed the Serbian striker who is the league’s top scorer to score a brace.
