Date: Saturday, 18th August 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: The Den (London).
Two of the stronger teams from last season take on each other on Saturday. Millwall are excellent hosts which pushed them near the playoffs last season while Derby are a good enough overall side with lots of ambition.
Millwall made their home at The Den nearly invincible last season. The Lions are playing well and caused trouble to a lot of teams here. The team will be hoping to have another successful season this year.
The London team has 2 points so far under their belt. They made a 3rd draw this season but it was in the Carabao Cup against Gillingham.
Last home game they dropped a 2 goal lead against Middlesbrough and will be hoping to improve this time around.
Derby County chose Frankie Lampard to drive the team forward. He may not have a lot of experience under his belt but he definitely can motivate them and make them play for the shirt they are wearing.
The Rams have 3 points so far following their turnaround against Reading and the heavy defeat suffered at the hands of Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds.
