Barnsley vs Blackpool Prediction 17 January 2017

Tournament: FA Cup
Location: Oakwell Stadium
Match date: 17.01.2017 at 19:45.

On January 17 2017 at 19:45 in the regular game of the third round of the English FA Cup at the Oakwell Stadium the local Barnsley play against Blackpool. (The result of the first match is 0:0 draw)

 Barnsley are the beginners of the Football League Championship of the current season. They finished the first half of the championship in the middle of the standings on the safe distance from the relegation zone. The loss in Fulham in the previous match of the national championship broke the lossless series of the team which was already 5 games long. As for the FA Cup, they started their way in this competition in the current round and drew in the previous game against Blackpool. That is why according to the rules of the competition they will have to play one more game to decide who makes it to the next round.

As for Blackpool, they take part in the English Ligue Two and show more or less good results there. Yet, after the first half of the season we can’t say that the team has any ambitions to compete for the promotion to the Ligue One. In the latest five games Blackpool gained 5 points of 15 possible where they lost to Luton Town 0:2, Mansfield Town 0:1, outplayed Hartlepool United 0:1 and drew Grimsby Town 0:0 and Cambridge United 0:0.

Barnsley won most of the games played between the teams. They have outplayed Blackpool at the home ground many times and that is why Blackpool are pretty convenient competitors for them. Barnsley haven’t lost at home for three games already. Considering this fact, we can say that Barnsley will probably win in the upcoming game and make it to the next round of the FA Cup.
