Hull City will welcome Barnsley to KCOM Stadium for a matchday 34 fixture in England Championship. The last meeting on 6th November 2021 ended in a Hull City 2-0 win. Both sides have met twelve times in the most recent seasons. Hull City has won 5 matches, and Barnsley triumphed in 5. Recent outings average 2.08 goals, while both teams score 42% of the time.
Hull City’s latest fixture against Queens Park Rangers ended in an away 1-1 draw. They were not spectacular, so this result seems fair. Hull City set the tone early and scored in the 26 minute.
Barnsley’s previous game in the competition versus Coventry City ended in an away 1-0 loss. The Reds had plenty of time to pass around and make quality forward runs. However, the final result was not what they wish for before the game started.
Since the start of the season, Hull City is more dominant at home. They have five wins out of 16 games on home soil. Although Hull City is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 31% home clean sheets.
Barnsley has picked up 3 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Barnsley wins 0.25 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Barnsley kept a clean sheet in just 6% of their visits.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Draw or Barnsley.
Still, I expect a close game and don’t think that we will see a lot of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.25 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 44% of Hull City’s home and Barnsley’s away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
