Millwall vs Cardiff City
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 21 November 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: The Den.
The Bluebirds are currently placed 15th in the table, and have a single win to their name from the past five match-days. They also have been struggling to score goals lately, and that has majorly contributed to them being inconsistent in posting points on the board.
On the road, their latest fixture had ended in a 3-2 loss against QPR, and note that the Rangers are one of the worst teams in the competition at the moment.
Meanwhile, the Lions are just two points away from possessing a playoff position. They have had some tough match-ups lately, and that has put a dent in their chances of going after a top-six spot.
However, they have the fortune of taking on the struggling Bluebirds this weekend, and fans hope the hosts could turn it into a win.
Moreover, Gary Rowett’s men have the better h2h record in the past two decades against this opponent.
Likely, expect Millwall to deliver the better performance this weekend at the Den.
