Barnsley vs Norwich City Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Tuesday evening (19:45) fixture features two sides in the bottom half of the Championship in a game that was postponed because of the bad weather.  Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Barnsley will be looking to bounce after they lost 3-1 at the Riverside Stadium away to Middlesbrough on Saturday.  Kieffer Moore got their goal in the 58th minute but by that stage they were all three goals behind and that was the end of the scoring.

Norwich were involved in a seven-goal thriller in their last fixture going down 4-3 away to Hull City.  James Maddison had put them 3-1 ahead with a first-half hat-trick but the Tigers roared back to take all three points.

The reverse fixture came in mid-November at Carrow Road and ended in a 1-1 draw with Josh Murphy put the Canaries ahead only for Harvey Barnes to level things.  The East Anglian side have lost just one of the previous 14 meetings with the Tykes.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Norwich are favourites to win the game but given they are six without a victory I could not be backing them here.  The draw is probably the most logical solution for those looking for a match bet though I am looking elsewhere to find the value.

Over 2.5 goals looks a good choice here as the last two Canaries road games have produced a total of 11 goals while each of their last two and three of the last five for Barnsley have gone over.

James Maddison has six goals from his last five appearances on the road including a hat-trick on Saturday and he looks good value to score at any time here.

Barnsley Preview

Just one point from their last three and one victory in ten explains why the Tykes are in trouble as they sit just one place and two points above the drop zone.  This marks the start of a three-match run at their own ground and represents a chance to put some distance between themselves and the bottom three.

At Oakwell, they are nine without a victory though four of their last six at their own ground ended all-square.  Each of their last three and four of their last five in front of their own fans have seen both teams score.

Ollie McBurnie has netted four in his last five appearances while Kieffer Moore has grabbed two in his last five.  Ten of the last 16 goals scored in Barnsley league games have come in the first-half.

 

Barnsley Team News

Matt Mills (ankle) is their only doubt ahead of this fixture.

 

Norwich City Preview

The Canaries saw their five-game drawing run come to an end with defeat last time making it six without a league victory.  Three of their next four (including this one) are against teams in the bottom ten.

Away from Carrow Road, it is three without a victory though this does include draws at Derby and Wolves.  The East Anglian outfit have found the back of their net in each of their last five on their travels.

James Maddison is a player in great scoring form with 12 for the season and seven from his last 11 league appearances.  Norwich have kept clean sheets in five of their last eight meetings with Barnsley.

 

Norwich City Team News

Moritz Leitner (unknown), Christoph Zimmermann (illness), Marcus Edwards (fitness) and Matt Jarvis (ankle) are doubts while Louis Thompson (Achilles), Tom Trybull (ankle) and Marco Steiperman (hernia) are long-term absentees.
