Middlesbrough vs Millwall
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 28 April 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: Riverside Stadium (Middlesbrough).
Millwall got a huge slap in face when they fell 0-3 at home to promotional chasers Fulham last weekend at The Den. The Lions thus dropped out of the top six in the league standings after being winless in last two league affairs. They will have a mountain to climb to break back into it given they are to play the likes of Middlesbrough and Aston Villa in the last two rounds of the regular season.
An upset at Riverside would, however, mean the world to Neil Harris and his men since Boro sit three points above in fifth ahead of Saturday’s clash. The schedule might have been a tricky for the Lions of late, but their counterparts also played fellow playoffs contenders in the last couple of weeks.
Unlike Millwall, Middlesbrough snatched wins over the likes of Bristol City and Derby County to gain the pole position in the battle for the playoffs. Furthermore, they have a much easier fixture with the bottom-half and out-of-form Ipswich Town upcoming in the last round.
Middlesbrough vs Millwall: Head-to-head
We could really be in for goals on Saturday at Riverside judging by the most recent head to head record between these two likes.
Three or more goals were seen in seven of last eight H2H games.
Middlesbrough snatched eight goals in two wins over Millwall in the 2014/15 campaign in Championship, but the Lions came on top when teams met in this term, 2-1 at The Den.
Middlesbrough vs Millwall: Prediction
Tony Pulis’ men were almost impeccable at Riverside in 2018. They won six of last seven home games in the league, netting at least twice in all of these wins. Given that Millwall will come into the match low on confidence, we have reasons to expect another success for the locals in front of the home crowd. The main pick is Middlesbrough to win at 2.00.
Millwall bagged at least a goal in all of last seven league games on the road, we will alternatively shoot for the Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS option, set at the odds of 2.50.
