Millwall vs Aston Villa
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 6th October 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: The Den (London)
Two sides playing far from their best are hoping to return to their better days as Millwall hosts Aston Villa on Saturday afternoon.
Millwall are nowhere near the standards they set last season. The team’s home fortress has fallen this year and relegation battle is at hand. The team has the ability to score goals but they look terrible at the back in recent weeks.
Millwall improved a bit midweek following a 2-2 draw against Nottingham away. They were 2-0 down but two late strikes from the Lions and they secured a vital point.
Aston Villa are in a terrible shape currently. The team started the season decently well but lately dark days have fallen over Villa Park. The Villans have just a single victory in their last 10 games and the fans are getting outraged.
Midweek Steve Bruce’s boys dropped a 2-0 lead over last placed Preston North End to eventually finish in a 3-3 draw. Moments before another disappointment this season one of the fans reportedly threw a cabbage against Aston Villa’s manager before kick-off. Both Aston Villa staff and even the police are investigating the case. Following this story Steve Bruce was removed from his position and now the Villans are looking for a new manager with Thierry Henry and John Terry being linked to the position.

Millwall vs Aston Villa: Predictions
There is usually no telling how a team may react following removal of their manager. Both teams are not in a good shape but still capable of scoring. We would advise against putting a bet on full time result as the Villans will be unpredictable in this situation. The best bet here looks to be for both teams to score.
