Millwall vs Bristol City
England – FA Cup
Date: Saturday, 23 January 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: The Den (London).
Millwall went to Boreham Wood in their previous encounter in FA Cup schedule. The Lions came back with a 0-2 win on the road against the National League contenders. The host will aim to build on that clean sheet win in the tournament to advance into the quarter-final stage this season.
Bristol City had a tough fought win at home against Portsmouth in the previous FA Cup fixture. The 2-1 win against the League One contingents did not come easy. And visiting another fellow championship side will not be a walk in the park for the Robins in the tournament.

Millwall vs Bristol City Prediction
Millwall is at the 16th spot on the championship table with 29 points this term. On the other hand, Bristol City has picked up 36 points to stay at the ninth spot on the league table as it stands. The Robins had three losses in their recent five fixtures while the host had a win after four winless games in their schedule.
The Lions have the worst record at home in the championship, as they have won only one of their 11 such attempts in the campaign. Meanwhile, Bristol City has 5 wins in their 12 outings in the league but will visit on the back of a four-game losing streak in their away fixtures this season.
Since both teams are in a troubled form in the campaign, we cannot expect a high-scoring affair in the tournament. So, the tip for over 1.5 goals will probably be the safest bet in the clash. With their lead in the championship table, the double chance favoring Bristol City will be the ideal choice for the punters.
