Middlesbrough vs Millwall Prediction & Match Preview

Middlesbrough vs Millwall
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 19th January 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Riverside Stadium (Middlesbrough).

The Boro’s steady run in the Championship took a hit after the stumble they had at the end of the last month. But they seem to have recovered and is eager to make up for lost time and opportunities. The team is paired up with a weak group of sorts, Millwall, but things are not as simple as that.

The Lions would have dreaded facing the Smoggies at their home a month or two back. But they ran away with four wins in a row, and it really has the fans hoping and expecting for more.

This match should definitely be an interesting one for neutral fans, as two teams trying to get a hold of things, go with all their might for the win.

Middlesbrough vs Millwall Prediction

We can expect goals from both sides considering the home advantage for the Boro, and their passionate gameplay so as to make amends for the dreadful three weeks they had in December, as well as the red-hot streak of form that Neil Harris’s men have been in the recent days. MFC scored a total of seven goals in their last two overall matches, and in their last two home-ties. Their counterparts found the back of the net in four of their last five away ties and scored a total of nine goals from these five fixtures.

Five of the last six h2h ties, eight of the last ten and three of the last four at this venue, had over 2.5 match goals. I think the trend will be continued this week too.

Expect over 2.5 goals in the game and at least one in the first half.
