Blackburn vs Barnsley Match Preview

leaguelane.com, 19 November 2019, 16:27

Barnsley is coming to terms with the fact that just how tough the Championship could be. The recently promoted club is placed 24th in the table, and with them, on the road, this match-day, the misfiring but experienced Blackburn, will surely target nothing but the three points.

Blackburn vs Barnsley Head-to-head (h2h)

Five of the former seven wins went to Blackburn.

Barnsley conceded twice or more in five of the previous seven fixtures.

Three of the previous four fixtures at this stadium saw the home team recording the win.

Three of the preceding four games at the venue had the hosts scoring two or more goals.

Blackburn vs Barnsley Prediction

Barnsley was outplayed right from the beginning of their previous fixture, for which they even had enjoyed the home advantage. Conceding in the eighth minute, the hosts were put under pressure, which later compounded with another goal let in, in the 30th. Though the home team hit back one just after half time, another two goals by the visiting contingent settled the score in their favor.

Blackburn, meanwhile, will be proud of how their latest home fixture panned out. Till the 83rd minute, the match remained goalless, and then visitors, Sheffield Wednesday opened their account to scare the assembled fans. However, in the final two minutes of the match, the hosts hit two goals to shift the tide in their favor.

This Saturday, take account of the fact that Barnsley is placed dead-last in the table, and have secured a single victory so far, from their 16 fixtures. They have also conceded the most number of goals in the process, and are easily the worst of the lot on the road as well.

To quote a stat, they have not yet won a game away from home, and have scored the least number of goals in such fixtures as well.

On the other hand, their opposite number was unbeaten in 11 of their previous 13 games in front of the home crowd, and have kept three clean sheets from their past seven appearances there.

Also, do understand that Barnsley is a new addition to this league. They have also paled in comparison in h2h clashes, and coupling the away handicap to this mix as well, the upper hand easily goes to the hosts. Consequentially, expect Blackburn to script a win this weekend.
