Birmingham got off to a great start in the Championship, picking up a brilliant 1-0 win over Brentford on the opening weekend. They then drew 1-1 with Bristol City before a 3-0 defeat at Nottingham Forest on Saturday gave them their first defeat of the season.
Barnsley have also made a decent start to the season, despite the loss of striker Keiffer Moore to Wigan. They drew 2-2 with their fellow newly-promoted side Charlton Athletic at the weekend and started the season with a 1-0 win against Fulham. In between those results was a loss in the League Cup against Carlisle United and a 2-0 league loss to Sheffield Wednesday.
We’re kicking off our Birmingham vs Barnsley predictions with both teams to score in this game. The hosts have scored in their last five competitive home matches now and both teams have scored in four of those.
Barnsley drew 2-2 in their weekend clash with Charlton and they are likely to get a goal against a Birmingham side who rarely keep clean sheets. During their summer pre-season matches they scored a lot of goals and we’d be hopeful of a high scoring match in this one.
It could be tough to separate these sides and a 1-1 score looks a good bet to round off our betting tips in this one. The odds for this are 5/1 with Ladbrokes.
The odds for Birmingham to win this match are 5/4.
