Millwall vs Brighton Predictions & Match Preview

Millwall vs Brighton
England – FA Cup
Date: Sunday, 17th March 2019
Kick-off at 14.00 UK/ 15.00 CET
Venue: The Den (London).

It’s deep into the FA Cup, but still, teams from different leagues are still going at each other for this domestic glory.

For Millwall, the home advantage might be the only saving grace this Sunday. Even then, it might not count enough against their opponents, who ply their trade in the much more competent and superior Premier League, while they themselves are fighting to avoid relegation.

Brighton can hold their head high as far as this season is concerned. Against the stalwarts of the English top division, they have tried to hold their ground, and it must be said that they were not too bad. They too have the threat of the relegation fights looming behind, but at least they have built a comparatively healthier buffer of points.

Millwall vs Brighton Prediction

While Millwall is fighting to avoid relegation in the second division of English Football, Brighton is a valued presence in the Premier League. The difference in stature and quality is evident from this fact alone. Moreover, Millwall lost four of their last five games and was winless in seven of their last ten. At home, they have not tasted victory in the last four attempts. The team scored just two goals in these last four matches, while they conceded two or more in four of their last six home ties.

At the same time, Brighton won three of their last four fixtures and scored two or more goals in five of their last seven away matches. And importantly, the last time Millwall won an h2h game at their home was in 2007. The team also failed to score in their last two h2h attempts in front of their home crowd.

As these observations obviously suggest, the top pick is the Premier League side to dominate the game and progress.
