Leeds United vs Barnsley Match Preview and Predictions

Leeds United vs Barnsley
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 21 April 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Elland Road (Leeds).

Barnsley somehow managed to save a point against Bolton Wanderers thanks to a stoppage-time leveller from Oliver McBurnie. Nonetheless, a point from the clash with the Trotters was actually a poor return for the Tykes who are still two points shy of the safe zone.

The team led by Jose Morais will be looking for salvation points at Elland Road where they are about to take on the non-motivated Leeds United on Saturday afternoon. The host have nowhere to go in the remaining three games of the season which can actually be noticed in their latest performances. The Peacocks took only a single point in last four league games.

Furthermore, Paul Heckingbottom’s men won just one of last nine matches in the Championship. They look to be struggling to keep things tight at the back having shipped at least a goal in each of last nine games in the competition.

Leeds United vs Barnsley: Head-to-head

The head to head stats are all square at six wins for each of the teams ahead of their 16th meeting.

The Peacocks were much more successful in matches at Elland Road, though, where they won three, drew three and lost just one of seven games.

Leeds United came on top when teams met in this term of Championship back in late November last year.

Leeds United vs Barnsley: Prediction

Three of last four games Barnsley played offered four or more goals and saw both teams on the scoresheet. Having that in mind, the BTTS does not look to be a bad call at all, set at the odds of 1.66. This scenario was also seen in five of last seven games Leeds United played in Championship.

As for the outcome, we will go with Barnsley not to lose at 1.53 since Leeds United only won one of last nine league matches. Furthermore, the game has a much greater significance for the Tykes who are also worth backing to win at 2.70.
