Cardiff fell short of the play-off places last season and will be aiming to finish in the top 6 this time around, while Barnsley finished 5th in the table but it was Brentford that progressed via the play-offs. We're expecting an entertaining 90-minutes in South Wales and it's the hosts that claim the title of the favourites.

Cardiff to Win

Cardiff have an excellent record against Barnsley and even took 4pts off their guests last season when the Tykes finished above them. Cardiff have won five of their last six games against Barnsley, including each of their last three home games against Saturday's guests. The Bluebirds won their final pre-season game 2-0 against fellow Welsh side Newport, while Barnsley were thrashed 4-0 by Man City.

Over 2.5 Goals

There is a good chance we will see goals in this game as four of their last five meetings have produced over 2.5 goals. Four of Cardiff's last five matches have witnessed at least three goals being scored, including a 4-0 defeat to Southampton and a 5-0 win over Bath City. Barnsley's last game also produced over 2.5 goals as they went down 4-0 to the Premier League winners, Man City.

BTTS

We're backing goals in this game at both ends of the pitch as that has been the case in three of the duo's last five encounters, including their last clash which ended in a 2-2 draw. Two of the host's last four matches have also ended with both teams getting on the scoreboard and Cardiff have only failed to find the back of the net in one of their last five fixtures.

Barnsley expected to challenge for promotion once again 

Cardiff might have finished below Barnsley in the Championship table last season but they have the home advantage and a great recent record against the Tykes, so head into this weekend's clash as the bookmaker's favourites to secure all 3pts. Pre-season went pretty well for the Welsh side other than a disappointing 4-0 home defeat to Premier League side Southampton. The hosts have no fresh injury concerns or suspended players ahead of the first game of the new season but Joseph Bennett remains sidelined and isn't expected back until October at the earliest.

Barnsley impressed last season and played some very attractive football but they did struggle in their games against the Bluebirds. Cardiff secured a 3-0 home win against Barnsley last season and the pair drew 2-2 in their reverse league fixture. Barnsley probably haven't scored as many goals as they would have liked in pre-season but will be hoping to put that behind them against a Cardiff defence that has only kept two clean sheets against them in their last five encounters.
