Barnsley hosts Stoke City in round 32 of the English Championship. The match will be played on Wednesday, February 24th at Oakwell (Barnsley)
Barnsley was remembered for its performance in the cup - there the Tykes knocked out Norwich, which is the leader of their division, and lost to Chelsea with a minimal 0-1 score. As for the Championship, Barnsley has not lost in five matches in a row. It was not for nothing that the Tykes invited the Frenchman, Valerien Ismael. And if there were draws with Cardiff and Nottingham Forest at first, then Barnsley only won. For starters, it sensationally beat one of the leaders of the Championship, Brentford. And then the Tykes managed to take the maximum in meetings with Blackburn (home 2-1) and Bristol City (away 1-0). After this spurt, the club is closing the top ten, but the sixth Bournemouth is only four points ahead, and the Tykes have a match in reserve.

Fans of British football remember Stoke City as a strong middle peasant in the English Premier League. The team even managed to make it to the final of the cup, and such stars as Arnautovic and Shaqiri played in the squad. By the way, Shawcross, a veteran who had played for Stoke for over 13 years, moved to Inter Miami only recently. However, even now you can find relatively famous players - Powell, who hammered 10 goals, Clucas, Vokes, Tom Ince, as well as experienced Allen and Obi Mikel. At the same time, Stoke City almost dropped to League 1 in the previous season. Fortunately, manager O'Neill came and pulled the club to 15th place. And the Potters showed a game at the level of middle peasants. But after leaving the cup and 10 matches without victories in the Championship, Stoke City was able to beat Sheffield Wednesday (1-0) and Luton (3-0), which helped the team to get closer to the playoff zone. Now the Potters have the same 45 points as Barnsley, though they played all 31 matches.
Stoke City mostly plays well with Barnsley. But in the current season, the Tykes tied with the Potters on their pitch (2-2). Truth be told, the Potters have been playing in the minority for the last half hour (Collins picked up a red card). Both clubs are finally in good shape. And we think that they will manage to please us with spectacular and scoring football.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.0 goals scored
