Middlesbrough vs Barnsley Prediction
It has not been a walk in the park for Middlesbrough in this season of the championship. More than aiming for promotion, they will be focused on not falling into the relegation zone in the table. Since there are more games to follow, the previous season 7th spot holders will be hoping to change their poor form into a better one in the upcoming matches.
Ever so, the clash with the promoted contingents, Barnsley will be the best opportunity to turn the tables around for the Smoggies themselves. Evidently, Middlesbrough has won only 2 games so far, while most of their 17 appearances ended in a draw (8 Draws). Alongside that, the host has lost in 7 of their attempts in the campaign.
Middlesbrough was unbeaten in four of the last five but all four were draws. Currently, the Smoggies are at the edge of relegation at the 21st position in the table with 14 points. Their previous encounter with Hull City ended in a 2-2 draw.
Since they are scoring at home even against upper table teams, we can count on Middlesbrough to perform well against Barnsley.
Barnsley is at the ultimate bottom of the table with just 9 points from 6 draws and a lone win in the league. Also, the guest has scored 18 goals but conceded 36 goals in return in their 17 league appearances. They have lost 10 of their attempts in the campaign so far.
Besides that, Barnsley is winless in the last 17 Championship games. Other than the win against Fulham in the opening match at home, Barnsley has never found three points in the season until now. Apart from that, their previous encounter with Blackburn on the road gave a 3-2 defeat for the Tykes.
Henceforth, the host having the home ground advantage is more likely to register the win in the match.
