Cardiff City vs Barnsley Prediction 6 March 2018

Tournament: Football League Championship
Location: Cardiff City Stadium
Match date: 06.03.2018 at 19:45

On March 6 2018 at 19:45 in the upcoming regular game of the 36th matchday of the English Football League Championship at the Cardiff City Stadium the local Cardiff City will play against their guests Barnsley.

Most of the European championships are closer to the end in spring just like the Football League Championship. We already know the teams which are going to be in the race for the promotion and the ones which will be trying their best to just save their places in the Championship. The teams we are going to talk about are from different groups and we think that the stronger ones are going to win this time. There are the reasons why we do it and we will try to explain them.

Cardiff are now on the 2nd place in the standings due to the fact that they won 20 of their 34 games already played. Moreover, they won their latest four matches in a row. And they won those games against the teams which are far above Barnsley in the standings of the Championship now. They actually outplayed Bolton, Ipswich, Bristol and Middlesbrough. Their main task is to stay on the position they take now and promote directly.

Cardiff look just brilliant at home as they won their latest three matches. In general, in their 17 games played at the Cardiff City Stadium they won 12 times and only lost twice. According to the goal stats, every time Cardiff let their competitors score one goal, they score three goals. They are only missing one important defender from the main squad and yet it won’t probably help the visitors as the attack of Barnsley is the fourth worse in the Football League Championship.

As for Barnsley, they are on the 21st position in the standings which is the last once before the relegation zone. The main task of the team is to stay in the Championship and to avoid relegation. And we must be frank that they hardly deal with this task. For example, in their latest five games they only gained five points playing against the teams who are really far from the top of the table. They even lost their domestic match against one of the outsiders Burton Albion.

Barnsley are really poor in their away matches as they lost almost half of their away games played in the current season. They lost all of their away matches played against the teams from the top six.

All of the facts we have already mentioned make us think that the hosts are much more likely to gain their three points in the upcoming game.
