Barnsley FC vs Middlesbrough FC – Betting Tips for the game
Barnsley come into the game on the back of a 3-1 triumph over Millwall. The victory was their first in five attempts in their Championship campaign. Tom Bradshaw scored a goal in either half for Barnsley.
Middlesbrough have stuttered with their league form of late, and they are winless in their previous three outings. Garry Monk’s side drew 2-2 versus Brentford in their last game. Middlesbrough came twice from behind against Brentford with Fabio scoring the vital equaliser in the 76th minute.
The previous meeting between the clubs was at the Riverside Stadium in 2014 with Middlesbrough securing a comfortable 3-1 win. The scores were 1-1 until the 90th minute when goals from Danny Graham and Lee Tomlin sealed the victory.
The last outing at the Oakwell, however, went in Barnsley’s favour by a 3-2 score. Barnsley scored all their goals in the first period, and they had to withstand a late comeback from Middlesbrough to bag the win. Our betting tips and predictions expect a Middlesbrough victory.
