Aleksandar Mitrovic to score anytime against Barnsley in Saturday’s Championship matchup

Competition: Championship

Market: Aleksandar Mitrovic to score anytime

RESULT# bet won

Fulham will return from their international break this weekend when they host Barnsley at Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, while Fulham may have lost their Premier League status earlier this year, the Cottagers are tipped as a standout pick to return to the top flight immediately. 

The west London club were last seen heading into the international break on a six-match winning streak, having finally found their feet under new manager Marco Silva. 

Continuing to shine in the final third, the former Everton manager will be buoyed by the fact that he has one attacking talisman enjoying his own purple patch.

Aleksandar Mitrovic has taken the Championship by storm this season, scoring a stunning last-gasp winner to help Serbia secure a spot in next year’s World Cup finals. Surprisingly, the Fulham striker has already scored 20 second-tier goals since the start of the 2021/22 season.

In terms of the visitors, while Fulham may be coming off a winning streak, the same cannot be said for a downbeat Barnsley side. Although the Reds surprised many in the Championship by securing a play-off spot last season, new manager Markus Schopp is well aware of the magnitude of the task ahead of him.

Fans around Oakwell have seen their side lose eight of their last nine second-tier games, most recently a sluggish 2-0 defeat against Hull on home soil earlier this month. 

With that run dating back to September 18th, the Yorkshire-based club is embroiled in a relegation battle. Opening this weekend’s fixtures four points adrift of safety, it should also be noted that Barnsley have only won one game since the middle of August.
