Chris Wilder’s Middlesbrough take on Michael Duff’s Barnsley at the Riverside Stadium in EFL Cup action this Wednesday night. Wilder will be demanding a response from his side after their poor defeat at Queens Park Rangers last time out. As expected, the EFL Championship team are the big favourites, but can the EFL League One Tykes cause an upset in North Yorkshire? Take a look at the latest betting odds and top tips.

Middlesbrough Preview – Will Boro bounce back with a cup win?

Middlesbrough missed out on the top six by just five points last season, finishing in seventh with 70 points to their name. Chris Wilder’s boys will be looking for a play-off berth at the very least this term, though they have made a slow start to their 2022-23 campaign.

On the opening weekend of the season, Boro were held to a 1-1 home draw by Steve Bruce’s West Bromwich Albion. They then crashed to a surprise 3-2 loss to Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road. Middlesbrough were 3-0 down before the 40th-minute mark.

Our betting prediction:
Barnsley to score first

(odds taken 1603 GMT, Tuesday 9 August)

The league is the priority for Middlesbrough, but the North Yorkshire outfit could benefit from a good cup run. The home team will want an EFL Cup win in midweek, and the bookies have the hosts priced at just 4/9 to prevail in 90.

Barnsley Preview – Can the League One outfit upset the hosts?

After their woeful season in the Championship, a year of consolidation in League One could be a good thing for Barnsley. They have made a steady enough start under Michael Duff, winning one and losing one thus far.

On the opening weekend of the new season, Duff’s boys were narrowly beaten by Plymouth Argyle at Home Park. However, they responded with a hard-fought 1-0 win of their own on matchday two, with Luke Thomas scoring the only goal of the game against Cheltenham Town.

Barnsley will still be licking their wounds from last season, but victory over a good Championship club in the cup could restore some pride. The away win this Wednesday is available at the tempting price of 13/2.


Middlesbrough vs Barnsley Betting Advice

Barnsley were on their way to relegation while Boro were pushing for the top six at the time, but the Tykes beat Middlesbrough 3-2 at Oakwell back in February when these two last met. Amine Bassi was the hero in that one, scoring a brace.

Middlesbrough won the reverse fixture at the Riverside earlier in the 2021-22 season, as goals from Andraz Sporar and Matt Crooks earned the home team a comfortable 2-0 victory.


Key Facts – Middlesbrough vs Barnsley Betting Tip

  • Middlesbrough have taken one point from a possible six so far
  • Barnsley suffered relegation from the Championship last term
  • Duff picked up his first win as Tykes boss last time out


Middlesbrough have won the last two meetings at the Riverside in the league, but Barnsley did leave with a 2-0 win in the EFL Cup back in September 2020. The Tykes also won the last fixture between the pair.

Barnsley will be buoyed from last weekend’s victory, and we fancy the away team to cause an upset at the Riverside on Wednesday. Put your money on the Tykes at 13/2. There is also excellent value in bet365’s 8/1 for Barnsley to win by one goal.
