Birmingham vs Barnsley for the English Championship league match on Tuesday at St Andrew’s Stadium.
Next Tuesday, 20th August 2019, Birmingham and Barnsley face each other for a game for matchday 4 of Championship (England). The match has kick-off at 19:45 at St. Andrew’s Stadium (Birmingham).
Barnsley has not found happiness so far in this division. They had made it to the top of the league table last season and got a promotion, but now their lives are not comfortable.
They started with a victory but could not repeat the feat. On the last day, they draw at home by the newly promoted team, Charlton.
Birmingham opponents will have to make full use of their pitch in some way. They had a last-minute campaign, and although it seemed they had let the past remain in the past, the effects have not yet worn off.
Clashes between the two teams
Barnsley has recorded the last three wins.
Six of the last seven wins have gone to the away teams.
Birmingham has conceded twice or more in the last four consecutive games.
The last time the hosts won at this venue was eleven years ago.
Birmingham has three wins in their last seventeen official games and only one at home in the previous eleven attempts. On the other hand, their opponents were unbeaten in eight of their last eleven official trips and, importantly, recorded the last three wins in direct confrontations, and scored two or more goals in the previous four meetings.
Also, six of their last seven clashes wins have gone to the opposing sides, and Barnsley has been unbeaten in this arena for over a decade.
But given Barnsley’s “newly promoted” status, their relative inexperience in the Championship and their disadvantage for this game, both scoring YES looks like a good bet for this game.
