Millwall vs Blackburn Prediction & Match Preview

Millwall vs Blackburn
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 12th January 2019
Kick-off at 17.30 UK/ 18.30 CET
Venue: The Den (London).

After a disappointing run towards the final part of the year, Millwall picked up their pace some time around Christmas and has been on a roll ever since. They are on a four-game winning streak and managed to keep clean sheets in two of them.

Blackburn couldn’t close out their FA Cup fixture against Newcastle, and the extra match they will have to play will be hanging in the back of their minds. The team missed progression right out of the grasp of their hands. An 84th-minute penalty by the hosts equalized the score after the Riversiders led for the better part of the second half.

Only Ipswich, the dead-last team in the league, has conceded more goals than either of these sides.
