Barnsley vs Derby Odds, Free Betting Tps, & Predictions

The Barnsley – Derby clash sees two of the teams currently in play-off positions facing each other. A close encounter can be expected and we believe any Barnsley vs Derby prediction made below is a likely outcome.

Derby or Draw

Derby won all of the last 3 matches against Barnsley. This includes 2 wins already this season – a 2-1 league win in August and a 3-0 FA Cup win in January. The Rams have been very solid travellers in recent months too (W3 D4 L1). Also, Derby have lost just 1 of their last 18 league games. Added to that is the fact that due to many injury issues, Barnsley’s rotation options are seriously restricted and this is why our first Barnsley vs Derby prediction is for Derby to avoid a defeat.

BTTS

Both these teams had been solid defensively in recent weeks. Yet, our next Barnsley vs Derby prediction is for both sides to be able to score. We base that on the fact that 3 of Barnsely’s last 4 home games had BTTS outcomes. Also, 5 of Derby’s last 6 away league matches saw both sides scoring.

Over 2.5 Goals

Our final Barnsley vs Derby prediction is that there will be at least 3 total goals scored. Considering that 3 of the last 4 matches between the sides went over 2.5 goals this is not such a surprising prediction.

Also, Barnsley saw 3 of their most recent 4 home games going over 2.5 goals. Derby too registered 3 consecutive away games with over 2..5 outcomes.

Barnsley vs Derby Lineups, Analysis, and Latest Team News

Barnsley

Despite the many selection issues Barnsley had been near perfect in the last 6 rounds (W5 D1). Still, worth stressing that all of those 6 games were against teams from the bottom half of the table so the schedule helped this impressive run to be registered.

Barnsley could be missing as many as 9 players for this match. Main goalkeeper Collins definitely sits out injured, have 6 other long-term absentees + useful backup striker Watters misses suspended. On top of all that main playmaker Cadden is a fitness doubt.

Derby

Derby have lost just once in the last 18 rounds, with only League One leaders Sheff Wed showing better form during these 18 games. The Rams had been both solid defensively and effective in attack during the recent months.

The main anchor-man Bird is the only serious injury concern. In Knight very good cover option is available though and so far Bird’s absence hasn’t been noticed. Collins, Derby’s second-best goalscorer, should start again after being rested in the last match.
