The Championship contenders Barnsley and Sheffield Wednesday square battle at Wembley on Monday in a thrilling League One playoff final following two entirely different semifinal matches.
Barnsley had a relatively simple path to the championship, defeating Bolton Wanderers, whilst Wednesday had a difficult time against Peterborough in the semifinals, trailing 4-0 in the first leg before drawing the game and winning on penalties.
Barnsley vs Sheffield Wednesday
We shall learn which team, following Plymouth and Ipswich Town, will compete in the world’s most competitive second division on Monday at the historic Wembley Stadium. Barnsley and Sheffield Wednesday will take the lead in the Championship’s last fight for the final seat.
The Tykes will be vying for an immediate return to the Championship after reaching the League One play-off final on merit. With a final score of 2-1, they outperformed Bolton in the semi-final double encounter. Sheffield Wednesday, a team that produced a historic comeback in League One’s play-off round, is on the opposite side.
Peterborough was eliminated by The Owls from the semi-finals despite losing the first leg by as much as 0-4. At their “Hillsborough Stadium,” they first succeeded in eradicating their opponents’ significant advantage in the regular 90 minutes with a 5-1 triumph, and then they had better luck in the penalty shootout with a 5-4 victory (for a total of 6-5).
Although they had to work hard to get there, Wednesday are the superior team in this situation. They finished 10 points ahead of their Yorkshire opponents and weren’t far behind in the League One championship battle.
Since Barnsley’s victory over Bolton was their first in their last five games, and Moore’s team also has good form, Wednesday will be optimistic that they can win this one.
Expect Wednesday to secure their spot in the Championship with a firm reminder that there is no second leg to save them.
Although Sheffield Wednesday is considered one of the favorites to advance to the Championship, it is important to remember that Barnsley twice outperformed them during the league portion of the season. The Owls won 2-0 in Sheffield, but they triumphed 4-2 at their “Oakwell” stadium. Therefore, we think that goals and on both sides are the greatest choices!
By the way, if the recent matches between Barnsley and Sheffield Wednesday have taught us anything, it’s that the nets move. We were able to profit from the BTTS wager eight times out of the nine prior official matches. We believe that sparks will fly anywhere, even if it’s an important duel.
