Reason For Derby vs Barrow Predictions

  • Derby won each of their last three cup meetings with lower league opponents.
  • Barrow scored in 22 of their last 25 competitive fixtures.
  • Barrow are making their League Cup debut this weekend.

Derby to advance to the next stage

Derby County being their 2020/21 Carbao Cup campaign with a winnable looking first round tie at home to former National League underdogs Barrow at Pride Park this week, and the Rams will expect to cruise into the next stage of the competition at their visitor’s expense.

Philip Cocu’s side finished the previous campaign with a poor record on their own patch, winning just two of their final eight games on home turf during what proved a disappointing run in, though a fixture at home to lower league opponents in the cup offers Derby the chance to kick off with a fresh winning start on Saturday.

Derby are expected to win with relative comfort this weekend, though a Barrow team that notched in 22 of their last 25 competitive fixtures could notch a consolation. With that considered, the home win and both teams to score combination looks worth backing at the prices quoted, while our correct score prediction points towards a 3-1 Derby victory.

Keen to get off to a convincing start, Derby’s established Championship class should eventually shine through and having scored four times the last time they face lower league opponents in a cup competition (4-2 vs Northampton, FA Cup Feb 4th), the Rams can find joy in the final third again.
