Reason For Cardiff vs Barnsley Betting Tips

  • Cardiff are aiming to continue their climb up the table this week.
  • Barnsley have failed to win their last 16 away games in the Championship.
  • Cardiff have lost only 1 of their last 10 meetings with Barnsley.
  • The Bluebirds are chasing a third straight 1-0 win.

Meeting in the Middle

Can Cardiff continue to move up the Championship table with a victory this week? The Bluebirds are going in the right direction, while they are facing a side who are set for League One following a below-par campaign. These two sides were two divisions apart last season, but they’ve met in the middle this term. Will that gulf between them be evident when they clash at the Cardiff City Stadium this weekend?

Barnsley’s Signs of Life

The visitors picked up a rare victory last weekend, as they saw off Hull with a 3-1 home win. That is only their second victory of the campaign, ending a 17-match wait for a win. However, the Tykes remain without success on their travels. That has played a major part in them sitting bottom of the pile as we approach the half-way point.

So far this term, they’ve averaged only 0.22 points per game on the road. The Tykes have lost seven of nine trips, while Barnsley are winless in their last 16 Championship away games (D3 L13) since a 2-0 win at Birmingham in February 2018. That poor record is set to take them down, while it points to another loss incoming this weekend.

Home Dominance for Harris

Cardiff boss Neil Harris got off to a winning start in his first home game, while their impressive victory at Nottingham Forest has added to his good start. The Bluebirds will be out to make it three straight wins, while they could pull that off based on their record against the Tykes. Cardiff City have lost just one of their last 10 league meetings with Barnsley (W6 D3).

Barnsley’s last league match at the Cardiff City Stadium was in March 2018, losing on their way to being relegated that season. They’re going the same way this term, while this clash sees them face a Cardiff side who are back to their best. Cardiff have won back-to-back league games, having won just one of their last seven. They last won three in a row in February/March 2018 (a run of eight). Their early season struggles are gone and Cardiff are finally stringing results together, so we’re backing a home win here.

Cardiff are looking a little different now, with their recent games limited on goals. Three of their last four have seen a single goal scored, while they come into this clash with back-to-back 1-0 wins behind them. Meanwhile, 56% of Barnsley’s trips have seen them lose by a single goal, while they have failed to score in the same number on their travels. The Tykes are looking a little better in defence after conceding just once in their last two, so a 1-0 home win is our correct score selection.
