​Oxford vs Barnsley: Top free betting tips

Our Oxford vs Barnsley prediction is for an open match full of twists, turns and goals. Who can score more goals in this clash?

Oxford and Barnsley are level on points and inside the top 6, so this massive direct clash is important for many reasons. Both sides have been scoring goals with great ease this season and this is why they remain firmly in the race for promotion. 

​Total away goals prediction: Over 1.5 Barnsley goals

Barnsley have been scoring plenty of goals against the U’s for years. The Tykes netted at least 2 goals in 5 of the last 6 H2Hs. Barnsley also scored 2 or more goals in 5 of their last 6 matches heading into this game. This is why our first Oxford vs Barnsley prediction is for at least 2 goals for the away team. 

​Total goals prediction: Even

Our second Oxford vs Barnsley prediction stays on the Goals Market. We think there will be an even amount of goals scored in this match. This was the case in 4 of the last 5 H2Hs. 

Also, all of Oxford’s last 3 games and 4 of Barnsley’s last 6 away matches had an even number of goals in them. 

​​Correct score prediction: 2-2 draw

With our final Oxford vs Barnsley prediction we take into account the first two free betting tips we gave you before predicting the final score. We think this game could easily end in a 2-2 draw. 

Barnsley saw 2 of their last 4 away league games finish in 2-2 draws. Also, 1 of the last 2 H2Hs played at the Kassam Stadium ended in a 2-2 draw.

How far will Barnsley’s fans travel to Oxford?

Barnsley fans will be challenged to make this postponed game as they will need a day off work, or at least a convincing excuse why leaving work so early, to make the 2 hours and 53 minutes rough estimate journey down south. 

The one-way distance that needs to be covered is 152 miles (244km) and with some tricky road conditions for sections of this trip likely we think it might take up to 4 hours to get to Oxford, so setting off earlier might be a good idea. 

​Oxford vs Barnsley: Tickets

There are still tickets available for sale but our information is that only a limited number of seats are left available for the cheapest North Family and East stands. The tickets for this game for U’s fans have been priced between £20.00 and £32.00 for adults, with various traditional discounts for seniors and youngsters in place.

Barnsley have been allocated 1,200 tickets for the match, all priced at £26.00 for adults. The away fans need to buy their ticket by noon on Tuesday, 23 January, at the latest as there will be no ticket sale for away supporters at the stadium.
