Sheffield Wednesday vs Barnsley Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

This lunchtime fixture (12:30) is a Yorkshire derby between two sides in the bottom-half of the Championship table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Sheffield Wednesday suffered a 2-0 loss to Derby last time out in a game they were in trouble early on with Glenn Loovens being dismissed in the fourth minute. Derby were ahead after five minutes through the penalty spot and the Owls did well to restrict them to just two goals. Barnsley also lost last time out as they suffered a 1-0 home defeat to Hull thanks to a 78th minute goal. The expected goals data shows the result was harsh on the Tykes who created better scoring opportunities but could not convert. This fixture last season was won 2-0 by the Owls while the reverse game at Oakwell ended in a 1-1 draw. Angus MacDonald had mixed fortunes in these matches netting an own-goal in one tie and a 90th minute equalizer in the other.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The prices dictate the bet and that means opposing Sheffield Wednesday at far too short a price. The Owls fans were calling for the head for manager Carlos Carvalhal in their last game and the Tykes will fancy their chances of bloodying the nose of their neighbours here. Wednesday have dropped points to Sunderland and QPR and Barnsley must be considered just as good as these teams so take them along with the draw in the double chance market as the value selection. It also looks worth a play on the visitors to be ahead at half-time with 60% of the goals they have scored coming before the break while just 31% of the hosts goals have come before the break.

Sheffield Wednesday Preview

The pressure is growing on manager Carlos Carvalhal who after leading his side to the play-offs two seasons in a row is now struggling to get his team going this season. It is two successive defeats and four from five for the Owls who sit in 16th place with the same number of points taken from their 13 fixtures. At Hillsborough, they have produced their better performances with three victories, one draw and two defeats. A feature of these home matches is goals with each of the last four going over 2.5 goals while five of six have seen both teams find the back of the net. Eight of their 13 in the league have seen a total of exactly two or three goals while none have ended goalless. 50% of the goals they have scored this season have come in the final 30 minutes with 44% coming between the 61st and 75th minute.

Sheffield Wednesday Team News

Glenn Loovens will miss the game following his red card last time out while Jordan Rhodes is a doubt with a sprained ankle.

Barnsley Preview

It is now just one victory from their last seven for the Tykes though that defeat against Hull did put to an end a run of three without defeat. They sit in 19th place with 12 points though that is one game in hand of most teams. Away from Oakwell, they have played five times, winning one, drawing one and losing three times. It is interesting to note though that four of these five on the road have been against top-eight opponents and the one that was not they won 3-1 at Millwall. The Yorkshire outfit tend to reward backers of their over 2.5 goals with eight of their 12 previous going over and they are producing an average of 2.75 goals per fixture. 60% of the goals they have scored have come in the first-half and 40% in the opening 30 minutes.
