Barnsley vs Blackburn Rovers betting preview: Even match expected

Barnsley hope to sell some tickets for this game even though the season has been rough so far with 38 points and a 24th position in the Championship table. Visiting Blackburn Rovers holds 9th place with 56 pts.

Best bookmaker betting odds:

It's no vacation for neither Barnsley nor Blackburn Rovers as both were in action only a few days ago. Expect some tired legs on the pitch and/or possibly some changes to the lineups.

Barnsley form and stats

Overall Championship stats at home this season for Barnsley are 5-8-7 (wins-draw-losses).

Barnsley are confident in defense, having played 204 minutes without conceding a goal in the league.

A draw after 90 minutes last time out for Barnsley, who played 0-0 against Millwall. That match was also played at this venue (Oakwell Stadium). In the preceding match a 1-0 victory visiting Queens Park Rangers.

The bookmakers consider this a fairly even contest. One could say only the home advantage separates the teams. It could be relevant to look at how Barnsley have performed in matches similar to this (as small favourites). Our database has found eleven matches with the results: Won two, drawn five and lost four.

There's a new game coming up fairly quickly for Barnsley as they are travelling to their away game against Stoke City in the Championship. That match is four days after this one.

The Barnsley fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 26 in 20 matches. With more than 1,5 conceded goals on average, the Barnsley defense is not exactly impregnable. 33 goals conceded from 20 games. You can find more goal stats on the Statistics tab above.

Blackburn Rovers form and stats

6 wins, 3 draws and 10 losses. That’s the product of Blackburn Rovers playing as the away team in the Championship this season. Blackburn seem to be suffering from homesickness with two consecutive losses away. Third time lucky?

There might be some fixture complaints from Blackburn as they are again playing away from home after losing on the road in their previous match, the Championship match against Wigan Athletic (0-2). A home win before that, celebrating 3-1 vs Bristol City.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Blackburn Rovers playing away and similar expectations, we found 16 relevant matches. Results were five Blackburn wins, two draws and nine defeats.

The visitors are returning home after this fixture, hosting Leeds United in just four days.

Blackburn are scoring more than one goal per away game on average, having accumulated 28 away goals from 19 games (in the league). Blackburn's defence is not exactly unbeatable as they have conceded 31 goals from these trips.

Head 2 Head

The last H2H meeting was Blackburn Rovers - Barnsley 3-2, played this season. Head-to-head totals (for the last seven meetings): Barnsley won two games, one match ended with a draw and Blackburn Rovers has four wins. Over 2,5 goals / under 2,5 goals: five / two
