Cardiff City vs Barnsley Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Tuesday evening (19:45) game features two sides who had their game postponed at the weekend. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Cardiff were expected to go to Brentford and try to extend their winning run to five games but it was postponed. They last played February 25th when a Kenneth Zohore goal saw them defeat Bristol City. Barnsley were set to play host to Norwich on Saturday but that game also fell victim to the weather. They were last in action on the 27th February when a Oliver McBurnie goal saw them earn a point at Hull. The reverse fixture came in November at Oakwell and it was the Bluebirds who won that 1-0 thanks to a Callum Paterson goal. It continued a trend that has seen the away side go unbeaten in the last six head-to-heads.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Given their strong form and the gap in points between the two sides Cardiff are strong favourites to win the game. The price is not one you can back so I imagine most will want to find a way to enhance this price and backing the Bluebirds to win to nil might be a popular option as this has paid in their last four. A word of caution though Oliver McBurnie is on fire now and Kiefer Moore is also playing well so Barnsley look capable of getting a goal. Backing both teams to score looks a better option. Another bet I like is also a positive for the Yorkshire side and taking them to score before 79:00 minutes looks a play especially as they have netted four first-half goals from their last four.

YES in the both teams to score market

Cardiff City Preview

The Bluebirds are in great form with four straight victories and no defeat in their last eight in the league. Three of their next four at home and these all against sides struggling towards the bottom. At the Cardiff City Stadium, it has been four straight victories with eight goals netted and not one conceded. No side has a better home defence in the division with just ten shipped from 17 played. Cardiff have let in just two goals from their last eight Championship fixtures keeping six clean sheets. Kenneth Zohore has two in the last two in the league while Sean Morrison has two in the last three at home.

Cardiff City Team News

Armand Traore (thigh), Jazz Richards (severe bruising), Sean Morrison, Jamie Ward (both groin), Danny Ward (knee), Lee Peltier (unknown) and Aron Gunnarsson (ankle) are all doubts.

Barnsley Preview

The Tykes have started to show life under new manager Jose Morais and have taken four points from their last two. They are still in trouble with three of their next four against teams in the top eight. Away from Oakwell, they are unbeaten in two though they have taken just one point on the road to the top nine this season. They have found the net in all but one of their last six on their travels. Each of the last four that Barnsley have played have produced a total of exactly two or three goals. Oliver McBurnie is a player in form having netted four times in his last four appearances.

Barnsley Team News

Matt Mills (ankle) and Ethan Pinnock (broken foot) are doubts
