Barnsley vs Leeds United Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday lunchtime (12:30) game features two Yorkshire sides doing battle in a local derby. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Barnsley come into this game on the back of a midweek defeat at home to Cardiff. They struggled to create anything against their well drilled Welsh opponents and came undone to an 83rd minute Callum Paterson strike. Leeds also suffered disappointment in midweek as they lost 4-1 at Molineux to league leaders Wolves. After going two down at half-time United fought right back with a 48th minute Egzijan Alioski strike only for the game to come undone in the 60th minute with the dismissal of Ronaldo Vieira. The two meetings between the pair last season were won by the home side with the Tykes winning 3-2 at Oakwell and United coming out on top 2-1 at Elland Road. It continues a trend that has seen the away team win just two of their last 13 head-to-heads.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Bookmakers are having trouble splitting the pair and have them priced up at the same odds and this is hard to argue with. The visitors are the stronger team most likely but the hosts have home advantage and stronger recent form it looks like a could be a good game to watch but not one to take a side on in the match markets. I think this could be a tight competitive game with the local rivalry and as such I would recommend taking bets that we will have to wait for the goals. The market is set at no goal before 29:00 and this looks worth an interest as does the second-half to be the highest scoring 45 minutes.

Barnsley Preview

Despite defeat last time out the Tykes can be happy with their recent form that has seen lose just one of their last five and two of their last nine. They do sit in the bottom eight but just one of their next five is against a side in the top eight. At Oakwell, they have struggled a little recently losing two of their last three and winning just one of their last six. Their last three in front of their own fans have been low scoring with just four goals netted in total. The average time of the first goal scored for Barnsley is the 34th minute but this rises to just the 12th minute for home matches. The average time of the first goal conceded is the 41st minute or the 50th in home ties.

Barnsley Team News

Angus MacDonald (foot), Lloyd Isgrove (thigh) and Adam Jackson (knee) are all doubts. Joe Williams will return after a one game suspension.

Leeds United Preview

It is now four defeats in the last five league games for Leeds and five of six when looking at all competitions. They sit in tenth place and will be looking to bounce back with just one of their next seven against a side in the top eight. Away from Elland Road, they have lost their last two in the league and last three in all competitions. They have managed to net in all bar two of their road league fixtures this season. Nine of their last ten fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals with two of the last three going over 3.5 goals. Egzijan Alioski has netted in each of his last three league appearances for the Yorkshire side.

Leeds United Team News

Stuart Dallas (unknown) and Pierre Michel Lassoga (illness) are doubts while Ronaldo Vieira will miss the game through suspension.
