Barnsley vs West Bromwich Albion: Prediction and Betting Tips
— West Bromwich Albion (@WBA) December 13, 2021
Barnsley need to raise their morale and show some fighting spirit
At this stage of the last season, Barnsley had 34 points, now they’re second from the bottom with just 13 points. Notably, this is the Tykes worst start for a Championship season in a decade. To illustrate, Barnsley have the worst scoring average in the league with 15 goals in 22 matches. Moreover, the Tykes tally of 36 goals conceded is better than just Peterborough and Cardiff.
Additionally, Barnsley lost seven games in a row back in September and October. Coach Poya Asbaghi did manage to get a win after that but it was their only victory in the season so far. Also, the Reds have just two clean sheets all season which shows how weak they are at the back. Indeed Barnsley need to come up with better performances if they want to at least fight to avoid relegation.
West Bromwich Albion to stay in contention with the top two
West Brom reacted in an impressive manner to their relegation from the Premier League last season. In fact, the Baggies started their season with a ten-match unbeaten run. Nonetheless, West Brom lost their momentum and had some unstable results losing and winning every other game from round 11 to 16. Yet, once again coach Valerien Ismael’s team retaliated.
To point out, West Brom lost just one of their last seven matches and are unbeaten in their last four. Surely the Baggies’ fans want an automatic promotion and maintaining their unbeaten run of games is the way. However, Ismael needs to find better offensive strategies as his team netted just five times across their last eight games. In any case, West Brom’s away form improved lately and are now unbeaten in their last two trips (W1, D1).
Barnsley vs West Bromwich Albion Prediction
Many interesting markets to look for our prediction in this match. Firstly, six of West Brom’s last seven matches saw under 2.5 goals and the bookies are favoring that outcome and paying 1.75.
Moreover, the last three h2h matches ended in draws, with both teams scoring in all three of them. Additionally, West Brom’s away form in recent matches is much better than Barnsley’s home matches.
Considering all the facts and stats mentioned above, we will back a double chance outcome since Barnsley will battle for a point. And for our second prediction, we will back both teams to score despite the fact that it is not the favorite with the bookies. But we will go with history on this one!
