Oxford vs Barnsley Prediction & Match Preview

Oxford vs Barnsley
England – League One
Date: Tuesday, 29th January 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Kassam Stadium (Oxford).

This match has the potential to disrupt the existing equations at the top of the league table. The Tykes inhabit the third position in the league table as of now. But all that could change this Tuesday, since the top two teams are taking on each other.

Daniel Stendel’s men have got themselves an opportunity to make a huge leap in the race for the title, as well as in the battle for promotion. At present, they are comfortable with a presence in the playoffs, but a finish at the top-two would eliminate the need for all the hassle this summer, and open a red carpet for the team to walk into the Championship.

Against the struggling Yellows from the relegation zone, the Reds, are expected to put in a magnificent performance.

Oxford vs Barnsley Prediction

The Super Reds have the best defensive line in the entire league without contest. They have conceded goals in the competition at an average of below 1 goal per fixture. In one of their most important games this season, we can expect their ever reliable backline to show up.

A clean sheet for the visitors, against an aching team from the last-four is quite expected.

Coming to goals scored by the Tykes, only Peterborough has outscored them in matches on the road. The team knows the importance of this occasion, and the chance they have at hand. They could get into the driver’s seat, and be a top contender from Wednesday, if they keep up with their performances that they have displayed all season.

Considering the team’s great ability to deal with nerves, I expect them to win the tie, while shutting down the home-forwards. A final scoreline of 0-1, 0-2 or 0-3 will be the most anticipated one.
