Our prediction for this Championship match:
Saturday’s football game at Oakwell pits together Barnsley and Watford, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the 2020/21 season. Barnsley’s main goal is to secure yet another Championship survival, while Watford are eyeing a quick return to the Premier League. The Tykes are high on spirits ahead of the match as they did well to beat ten-man Queens Park Rangers 3-0 in midweek.
Talented defender Benjamin Williams remains in the recovery room, but he should be the only absentee in the home team. The Hornets, on the other hand, dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with relegation strugglers Wycombe on Tuesday evening. Seeing that the likes of Deeney, Dele-Bashiru, Masina, Perica, and Success are all likely to miss the game through injury for the visitors, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the Tykes this time out.
