Millwall vs Brentford
Date: Saturday, 26 September 2020
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: The Den, London.
One of the most anticipated matches this Saturday in English Championship is taking place in the capital.
Millwall are taking on the most efficient team from the last season and one of the main candidates to win the league Brentford FC.
We personally really enjoy watching Bees play. Their victory against West Bromwich Albion during the mid-week action was a true desert.
It looks like the loss to Birmingham in premiere appearance didn’t affect their confidence or play-style. As expected, bookmakers marked visitors as warm favorites for the win at 2.15 odds.
Millwall vs Brentford Head-to-head
Tradition and previous head to head stats say that Millwall have lost less than 10% home games against Brentford.
There were 22 duels in the past, and Lions are having minimal 7-6 lead in terms of victories.
The average number of goals scored in those encounters is somewhere around 2.50 per game.
Last season’s clashes in the Championship were won by home teams. Millwall won 1-0 here, lost 2-3 FT on the road despite having two-goal lead at the half-time.
Millwall vs Brentford Prediction
Even though everyone predicted them to struggle in the previous year, Millwall almost made it to the playoffs, ending the campaign in 8th position. Decent record of home is one of the main reasons for that – the stats were ten wins, eight draws and five defeats.
When it comes to current campaign, Millwall are doing just fine, beating Crawley Town and Cheltenham before getting eliminated by Barnsley. Championship games are much different, usually ending in low-scoring affairs (goalless draw vs Derby, 1-0 win against Rotherham).
Brentford have successfully recovered from a shock loss at St Andrew’s. The Bees are currently on an amazing streak of three wins in a row, having won duels against Southampton, Huddersfield and WBA.
There is no doubt Ollie Watkins and his departure crippled the team in terms of efficiency, but youngsters Joelenda Silva and Marcus Forss are on a good path to replace him, scoring one goal each so far.
Millwall have shown ability to stop Brentford at home numerous times in the last couple of years.
We feel that is going to be the case this season as well. We are tipping home win or draw double chance for the primary bet.
