First Team to Score Prediction: Barnsley to Score First

Barnsley is our pick to score first in this EFL knockout game against Port Vale. Despite keeping only one clean sheet in the group stages, Barnsley has improved massively in recent games. They have four wins ahead of this game, two of which had clean sheets. On the other hand, Port Vale slumped in form, losing two of their last four and winning once in the games.

Team to Score Prediction: BTTS

Port Vale hasn’t done poorly in recent games. So, while their current run of form is a wide berth of their 3 wins in the group stages, they only failed to score in one of the last four games. The hosts have five goals from the last five and with home support, back them to score too in this knockout game.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Barnsley

Barnsley’s current form should hand them a hard-fought victory in this game. They are better both defensively and in offensive play. Bet on a 2-1 win for Barnsley.
