Middlesbrough v Barnsley Carabao Cup kick off time, TV channel, news

Middlesbrough will take on Barnsley in the hope of avoiding the Championship club curse against lower league opponents who have already swept the Carabao Cup first round so far.

The 10 second-tier teams that were matched against opponents from lower divisions were eliminated at the first hurdle.

Chris Wilder’s top priority will be to get his side back up the league after a lackluster start to 2022/23. They are among the favorites to be promoted to the Premier League this season.

However, cup races are rarely a bad thing. They may sap some extra energy, but fans of 2004 champions Middlesbrough can attest to the joy of a solid run.

Barnsley were relegated to League One last season and started the season with a win and a loss.

Defeat clears the log of any other ties, but victory puts you in the crosshairs of far superior teams with the promise of a glamorous, sold-out tie. Boro toppled Manchester United last season and will line up determined for another run here.
