Barnsley vs Fulham for the English Championship League match on Saturday at Oakwell Stadium.
There were 26 places between them in the football pyramid in May, but now they face off at Oakwell when they both start their path at the Championship.
Barnsley returned to the second tier with a second-place finish in season one, while Fulham was second to last in the Premier League despite the 100 million pounds burden. This shows that there is still a considerable gap between these two teams.
Barnsley is among the favourites for demotion this year, but they don’t have much to think about. They are doing this all season as they prepare for the new campaign. Oakwell’s team have won four of their five pre-season matches as they prepare to face Fulham.
The sentiment at Craven Cottage seems quite clear this season, the club hierarchy is waiting to win promotion. It’s a big test for Scott Parker, but he’s been provided with a talented team to get back to the top.
Aleksandar Mitrovic leads the way in the Championship to the Golden Boot Predictions. He is supported with some reliable creativity as this Fulham team looks very close to the team that rose in 2018 playing brilliant offensive football.
Concern about Fulham it’s their defensive concession in 87% of league games in the top tier, where it showed some weaknesses in this chapter. They were better when they started playing last semester. Tykes have scored 13 times in five friendlies.
With questions about Fulham‘s defence, we hope the hosts will find the net on this one. However, the Cottagers have more than enough strength to cause trouble, so I believe they will be the most favourite in this game.
My bet is Fulham’s draw.
