Derby County host Barnsley on Sunday afternoon in what would be the first FA Cup match between the two sides since January 1897, when the Rams won 8-1.
The hosts go into this game full of confidence, having won each of their last two league games. Apart from the attack line, which has scored nine goals in the last four games alone, the team has also been very good defensively lately. In their last nine games in all competitions, they conceded only two goals, keeping a clean sheet on seven occasions. However, the fact that they have kept a clean sheet only twice in their last eight meetings with the visitors might just see Sunday's game end differently. Let’s check soccer tip for today in here
Barnsley, meanwhile, had a chance to extend their run of six unbeaten games in all competitions lớn seven when they hosted Bolton earlier in the week, but suffered a 3-0 defeat. Nevertheless, it can be said that the defeat was due to Mads Juel Andersen’s red card, which reduced Michael Duff's side to ten men after just ten minutes. Considering that it was only the first match in the last eleven games in which they didn't score a goal, you should expect the visitors lớn get on the scoresheet this weekend.
