There won’t be many football games on Friday. The English Championship clash should not be lost in the background. Huddersfield and Barnsley are set to play that evening. The home side are amongst the leaders, and will take on one of the underdogs. But is everything clear in this duel? The website’s experts have developed an exclusive forecast for the match on April 22, 2022. Full statistics and all current odds for the match can be viewed at 1xbet official website.
Huddersfield set to fight for a return to the Premier League
The Terriers almost went ‘in transit’ to League One England after their time in the APL. But still managed to pick up 49 points and climb to 20th place enough to survive. Now they’ve managed to add a lot more than one would expect. Not only Fulham, but Bournemouth as well are clearly stronger for a direct place in the table. But Carlos Corberan’s side should be able to clinch a place in the top six, given the current situation. Yes, they had a poor start after their cup exit but they had some good results in April: victories over Hull and Luton and a draw against KPR. Last round they managed to make it 2-0 at Middlesbrough, which cemented their position in 3rd place in the table.
Barnsley are performing at their worst on the pitch this season
The Mongrels were able to pleasantly surprise last season. Managed to climb to a final 5th place at the time. The club even made the extra play-offs, but lost there to Swansea. Now everything is 180 degrees inverted, and almost nothing at all can be done: they score little, concede often and, as a result, the logical place in the relegation zone. The fact that they manage to keep at least not in last place is not the merit of the team itself, but the result of those point penalties, which are imposed on Derby. Anyway, what difference does it make whether we drop from 24th or 22nd place? What is clear is that there is no longer any real chance of climbing up to a saving position. Although, in general, in recent months the team have been scoring quite often. But victories are few and draws will not save the situation. And last round, Barnsley lost to similarly almost hopeless outsiders – Peterborough.
Barnsley have won three games in a row. But this season, Huddersfield have an away draw in the Championship and a cup win.
1 of the leaders in the standings, who are still dreaming of a direct ticket, takes on a deaf outsider. We bet on the Terriers’ victory with a -1 goal handicap (odds – 2.12).
