Our Prediction:

Bristol City will win

Barnsley – Bristol City Match Prediction | 01-11-2019 15:45

Bristol City have been a good side to watch too and also pose opposing sides plenty of problems in the final third. TammyAbraham has been responsible for 8 of their 21 league goals and has the potential to cause a sluggish Barnsley defence problems here. He would have benefited from being rested in the League Cup in midweek and backing Abraham to score at any time at 13/10 looks worth a punt, given the stunning form he has been in this season.

Bristol City have been impressive in recent warm-up games. Barnsley suffered a heavy 4-0 loss to the League One side Rotherham United in their last friendly match and, taking everything into account, we believe that the hosts will pick up all three points from the Ashton Gate Stadium clash. Bristol City aim to kick off the new campaign in style and we predict that the hosts will go all guns blazing at the Tykes in Saturdays football match. A man to watch in the home team will be summer signing Famara Diedhiou, who scored 8 goals for Angers in the 2016/2017 Ligue 1 season. Following three consecutive wins over the likes of Yeovil Town, Guimar and Cheltenham Town the Robins recorded a 2-0 win over Twente in their last warm-up game and, no doubt, the hosts are high on confidence ahead of the visit of Barnsley.

Bristol City have been in a much better form of late than Barnsley and seeing that a win over Barnsley will see them regain their place in top six, we predict that the visitors are going to pick up all three points from the Oakwell Stadium clash. Barnsley aim to avoid relegation to the League One, whilst the Robins are eyeing a place in the Championship play-offs. The Robins, on the other hand, desperately needed a win over Ipswich Town in their last league match and they managed to get one. The Tykes are on a five-game winless run in the league ahead of the visit of Bristol City and they are eager to get back on course. Oakwell Stadium will host Friday's football match between Barnsley and Bristol City, the two teams who have totally different ambitions in the season finale.

Formed in 1894 the Robins mostly participated in English lower leagues and they have never played in the Premier League. Bristol Citys bitterest rivals are Bristol Rovers and it has to be noted that two teams first met in 1897. Bristol City have outplayed their local rivals on 43 occasions in the Bristol Derby. Bristol City are one of the two famous clubs from the city of Bristol.

Tammy Abraham has been scoring goals for fun this season and we predict that he will pose a big threat for the opposition back-line. The Robins are sitting in 18th place in the standings ahead of the visit of Barnsley and they are only four points clear of bottom three. The hosts are likely to leave their hearts on the field in Saturdays football match as a win over the Tykes would see them move one step closer to securing the Championship survival. Following back-to-back wins over the likes of Wolverhampton and Queens Park Rangers, Bristol City shared the spoils with Birmingham City in the relegation six-pointer. You should know that Bristol City are eyeing their fourth consecutive win at their Ashton Gate Stadium. Barnsley, on the other hand, have little to play for in the season finale as they are stuck in the middle of the table and that is yet another reason why home win should be considered.

The Robins were beaten by the likes of Cardiff City and Queens Park Rangers in previous two away games in the Championship and they are unlikely to spoil Barnsleys Party at Oakwell Stadium. The Tykes regained a much-needed confidence and they will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they host Bristol City at their Oakwell Stadium. Thanks to a 2-0 win over Brentford at Griffin Park Barnsley put an end to their three-match losing run in the Championship. Barnsley are four points behind the play-offs places and, no doubt, Saturdays football match against Bristol City is of big importance for the hosts. You should know that 16 goals were scored in previous three meetings between the two teams in all competitions. Bristol City did well to beat Blackburn Rovers on Matchday 14, but we predict that they will return home empty-handed from Saturdays football match against Barnsley.

Barnsley vs Bristol City Stats

If Bristol City are to be genuine play-off contenders then Oakwell is the sort of place they may think they need to be winning at and they will come gunning for 3 points rather than 1. This is also a game that both teams will genuinely believe they can win. You under-estimate Barnsley at your peril though and the Yorkshire side will be really boosted by that win last time out and will fancy they can back that up with another good showing here.

Liam Lindsey, Jason McCarthy and Ethan Pinnock are all defenders but they need time to adjust and may lack the necessary quality to compensate for Roberts leave. The team was left by several important figures in the summer. The defender left a void in the defensive line after departing for Birmingham. The most notable is central defender Marc Roberts who had a key presence in the heart of the defensive line. There were a few defensive additions to the squad but they are hardly going to fill the void.
