Barnsley vs Norwich – Championship: A Barnsley at the bottom of the league table hosts a Norwich coming off a match that finished with 7 goals scored
Being the 3rd worst team in the league playing at home, Barnsley has bene feeling some difficulties to try to be consistent playing at home, with 2 losses and 2 draws on their last 4 matches at home,
having lost to Fulham and to Burton, which means they’ve lost against 1 good team and against 1 struggling team.
With only 15 goals scored at home, on a total of 36 goals scored, which results on an average lower than 1 goal per match, having failed to score in 7 of their matches at home (over 40% of their matches as hosts).
Their defence also shows great difficulty at home, conceding in 76% of the matches played, only keeping a clean sheet on 4 occasions.
With 9 winless matches at home, this match might be an opportunity for them to win again.
Winless on their last 6 matches, Norwich has had some very difficult encounter, against teams of the top of the league table such as Wolverhampton, Derby and Middlesbrough
They’ve played away from home against teams that are fighting for promotion and they didn’t lose, scoring on 2 occasions, so, they have some offensive ability that, in my opinion, can’t be ignored.
With 20 goals scored, they score in 78% of their away matches, and they’ve only failed to score 4 times, having scored on their last 5 matches away from home, which means the team scores even when playing on the road.
Conceding 24 goals when playing away from home, they’ve conceded a lot of goals on several matches. However, on 12 occasions, they’ve only conceded 1 or no goals, which gives me some confidence regarding their defence.
Barnsley vs Norwich – Betting Tip and Prediction:
A team that doesn’t score much at home, against a team that tends not to concede a lot of goals, despite having conceded 4 or 3 goals in some matches, it is not usual, and I don’t see the home side having the ability to score that many goals against Norwich.
That way, I think that Norwich has the ability to beat Barnsley, even away from home.
