Stevenage - Barnsley predictions

Kickoff starts at 16:00 on 20/01/2024 played @ White Hart Lane refereed by Sam Purkiss

With bookies pricing a home win at 2.20, it’s clear the match may yet go either way. The hosts have a distinct advantage, of course, but both a draw and an away win are quite possible outcomes.

The visitors are conscious of the challenge before them. To come out on top against Stevenage on their home field would be a noteworthy accomplishment, and it is never an easy task.

Stevenage are coming off from a textbook 0:1 victory in the previous round against Shrewsbury Town . The first half was slightly unfocused, but they managed to walk away with an away win after a solid second-half performance.

Barnsley secured three more points on the scoreboard after their previous home game against Carlisle United, though the performance itself gave the fans little cause for celebration. A relatively weaker opponent was in the lead for most of what should have been an easy match.

The home-pitch advantage appears to be quite important for Stevenage. Their last 3 fixtures at home were crowned by more than 5 goals in total.

The fact that they’re playing as visitors doesn’t seem like much of a hindrance for a team like Barnsley. In fact, their previous 3 away games were crowned by more than 5 total goals, so we can be sure that their attackers won’t shy away.

Despite the 2.20 price for a home win, the hosts lost their previous match against The Tykes. However, it’s important to keep in mind that they were the visitors in that bout.

Both teams will be able to field their strongest lineups this Saturday, with no injuries or suspensions to worry about.

You can safely put down an Over 2.5 Goals bet on this match and feel very confident. If the teams’ records are any indication, 3 or more goals in this match are almost guaranteed.
