Millwall vs Coventry Prediction & Match Preview

Millwall vs Coventry City
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 2 January 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: The Den.

Both teams are amongst the worst in the whole competition.

They are placed 16th and 17th in the table at the moment, and the Lions have a single win from their last 12 match-days.

Meanwhile the Sky Blues would have been winless in the previous five game weeks in the league, if not for their win against the dead-last placed Wycombe.

Going on, only the 24th placed Wycombe have conceded more goals than Mark Robins’s men in the whole competition, and it also needs to be taken into account that the latter are a newly promoted team to this league.

Going on, goals have also come in plenty in the previous several h2h clashes, that spans a period of over more than thirty years.

As things stand, expect a high-scoring fixture this weekend at the Den.

Millwall vs Coventry: Head-to-head (h2h)

Millwall vs Coventry: Prediction

Gary Rowett’s men recorded a 1-1 draw at home the last match-day, against Nottingham Forest. In the meantime, the Sky Blues lost 2-0 on the road the past game week, against Preston.

Going on, the Lions have a single win from their last 12 overall fixtures, and they also are on a winless run at this stadium since mid-October. Note that they also have posted a single league win at home all through this new season.

Meanwhile, their opposite number were winless in 16 of their last 20 overall games, and their sole league win away from home in the past six-month period had come against Wycombe.

In addition to this victory, they had a single other road win in the period, and it had come in the EFL Cup, against a team from the lower divisions.

Going on, majority of h2h encounters over the years have also had goals in huge numbers. In fact, every single face-to-face game at this stadium had over 1.5 match goals since 1989, disregarding a single meeting.

This Saturday, both teams are desperate to put an end to their respective dismal runs, and will give their 100% on the pitch. Likely, we can anticipate a high-scoring fixture at the Den.
