Sheffield United vs Barnsley Championship Prediction by LeagueLane

Sheffield United vs Barnsley
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 19 March 2022
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Bramall Lane.

Sheffield are desperately going after a top-six finish. As of now, they are placed seventh in the table, and need a surplus of just two points to climb level with the sixth-placed squad. Do note that they have a game in hand, and this could come in handy towards the end of the campaign.

Meanwhile, Barnsley are placed 22nd in a table of 24, right in the clutches of relegation zone. They have won just six times all through the campaign, and only one of these victories has come on the road.

It goes without saying that they are one of the worst teams in the Championship, and with the season approaching its end, the team is under pressure to deliver.

Thus is something that Sheffield could take advantage of. This weekend, at the Bramall Lane, expect them to make the most of this upcoming clash against a relegation-battler.
