Barnsley vs Newcastle U21 Prediction, Odds and Free Betting Tips (20/09/2022)

Barnsley will face Newcastle United U21 in another match from the EFL Trophy Group Stage on Tuesday.

Barnsley vs Newcastle U21: Top Free Betting Tips

Both Barnsley and Newcastle failed in their opening matches of the tournament and need the three points from this game. Here are our predictions.

Under 2.5 Goals

We do not expect an overly exciting game between these two teams based on their seasonal performances and the first games of the EFL Trophy we had last month. Barnsley can score goals but it not a weekly thing – they sometimes struggle against the most unexpected opponent. Newcastle, in turn, are one of the weakest youth teams right now and we actually do not expect them to score a goal.

Both Teams To Score – No

Both teams did not have both teams scoring in the first match of the tournament – Barnsley lost with 0:3 while Newcastle had a 0:0 draw at full time and then lost on penalties. Overall, the visitors are a weak youth team and even a side like Barnsley should be able to keep a clean sheet against them. Of course, there is always the option that this will be one of Barnsley's bad games in attack and they might also fail to score.

Barnsley To Win

With everything explained to date, we do think that Barnsley will win this match without having to go to penalties and we expect either a 1:0 or a 2:0. The team needs the three points to even contest the top two positions in this group and it would be shocking not to see them in this fight – they are the best team out of all four in this particular group. Barnsley should win this and the odds are relatively good too.

Barnsley vs Newcastle U21: Form, Recent Games, and News

Barnsley Preview

Barnsley are a team that plays in the regular League One in England and they have generally been one of the strongest teams in their league this season. It is a difficult competition and it is normal to have different results but Barnsley are one of the main contenders for the playoffs with 4 wins in 9 games and a goal difference of 13:9. They can score a lot of goals but they usually don't do it game after game – it is more of a massive result then a 0-goal game for them.

Newcastle Utd U21 Preview

Newcastle Utd are the youth formation of the regular team with the same name and they perform in the Premier League 2, Division 2, where they are an above-average side this season. The team will probably not reach the promotion stage but who knows. They are definitely not a high-scoring team compared to the other youth teams in the division and have a goal difference of 9:8 in 5 games.
