Barnsley comes motivated for this match after an away win, by 0-2, in the trip to Derby: Chaplin and Adeboyejo scored the goals of the triumph. The home team chooses to play in a traditional 5-2-3, where the three most advanced players are Chaplin, Adeboyejo and Frieser. In the most central area of the terrain, it is possible for James and Mowatt to act, the latter being responsible for conducting his team's attacks. When they go into the offensive process, the team usually chooses to try to channel their attack from the right side, this way it will be easier to take advantage of the depth offered by defender Clarke Oduor. Coach Valérien Ismael should not be able to count on Cauley Woodrow, Jordan Green, Romal Palmer, Callum Brittain, Jordan Williams and Ben Williams for being injured.
Analysis Nottingham Forest
The away team is currently in the 20th position of the league, with 12 points won, after 3 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Coventry City, by (2‑1). In the last match, they won in a home match against Wycombe Wanderers, by (2‑0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, since they have won 4 points in away matches and 8 points at their stadium, with 7 goals scored and 7 goals conceded at home, against 2 goals scored and 5 conceded in away matches. In the last 5 away league matches Nottingham Forest has a record of 1 win, 1 draw and 3 losses, so they have won 4 points out of 15 possible. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their away matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 32 of the last 50 matches have ended with Under 2,5 goals. In 11 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 8 times and have never been able to turn the score around.
Nottingham comes motivated after a 2-0 home win against Wycombe: Taylor scored twice in the match, allowing his team to win all three points. Contrary to the "enemy" of this round, Nottingham usually plays in a 4-3-3, where the three most advanced players are Knockaert, Taylor and Ameobi. The visiting club, when transitioning to the offensive process, usually does so through the left line, in order to take advantage of the quality of full-back Yuri Ribeiro. One of the characteristics of the visiting emblem is the way they are able to take advantage of their players' individual talent to create dangerous situations. Coach Chris Hughton should not be able to count on Lewis Grabban, Fouad Bachirou and Joe Worrall because they are handed over to the medical department.
The most likely scenario for this challenge will be the occurrence of some goals. In addition to the two sets going through a good moment, they also have a high number of goals in their matches. It should be noted that five of Barnsley's last eight matches ended with the “Over 2.5 Goals” market as a winner. Thus, a very open match is expected, with the two teams investing heavily in the offensive process.
