Leeds United vs Barnsley – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Premier League side Leeds are odds-on favourites to eliminate League One outfit Barnsley in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday. Read our top predictions for this week’s fixture below.

Over 2.5 Goals

Leeds have made a flying start to the 2021/22 campaign under Jesse Marsch and alongside some excellent results, United have been delivering excitement by the bucketload. All three of their domestic fixtures so far have produced over 2.5 goals and though several changes are expected to be made to their team for Wednesday’s Yorkshire derby cup clash against Barnsley, Marsch’s forward-thinking philosophy should ensure that supporters are on the edge of their seats again. With that considered, we recommend sticking to the under 2.5 goals market for this one.

Half Time/Full Time – Leeds/Leeds

Leeds enjoyed a superb 3-0 victory over Chelsea on Sunday and a rich vein of confidence should be running right through the club as a result. Barnsley meanwhile, were dismantled 3-0 at home by Wycombe Wanderers in their last assignment – a reverse that could have a crushing impact on their self-belief ahead of a tough trip to Elland Road. Leeds should have little trouble swatting the Tykes aside and a stake on the hosts to be leading at half time and full time appeals at the prices on offer.
