Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Portsmouth play host to Barnsley at their Fratton Park in the FA Cup round 4. The Pompey have been in a promising form at the start of the year, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to return to the Championship. Portsmouth have big ambitions for the 2019/20 FA Cup campaign as well, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against Barnsley.
The Tykes, on the other hand, sit in the relegation zone in the Championship standings ahead of the trip to Hampshire. Barnsley’s main goal is to avoid the relegation to the League One, meaning that head coach Gerhard Struber is likely to mix the squad against the Pompey. Seeing that Portsmouth are a real force to be reckoned with at home, the visitors are likely to return home empty-handed.
