England League Cup - Blackpool vs Barrow Prediction

England League Cup - Blackpool vs Barrow Prediction


Blackpool will go face to face with Barrow on 9th August 


After Blackpool concluded the past season in the lower half of the standings in Championship, Blackpool is looking to get better result this season in the second rank of English Premier league football. Blackpool started the new campaign with a win and a loss, putting them somewhere in the center of the standings once more. Blackpool played Stoke City in their previous match and this was a travel game at Bet365 Stadium. The scoreline was a 2-0 defeat in this Championship encounter. Meanwhile, Blackpool is currently without Anderson, Garbutt, Lawrence Gabriel, who are all at the moment on their injury list.


In as much as Barrow ended the past season just a spot above the relegation zone in League Two, Barrow was also 6 points clear of the first team in it and was never in real danger. Meanwhile, they kicked off the new season in excellent form with a couple of exciting victories in the first 2 rounds. Barrow last League 2 encounter was against Bradford City and the match finished in a 3-2 victory. The game was played at The Dunes Hotel Stadium, with Ben Whitfield, Josh Gordon and Josh Kay netting goals. Anyway, Barrow also has their complete squad at their manager's disposal, without any suspensions or injuries.

Verdict: Blackpool defeated Barrow in their previous three most recent encounters and they defeated them by 2 or more goals in 2 of those 3 matches played. That is exactly what I expect from this upcoming duel as well with lots of goals.

O/U Goals : Over 2.5 Goals
