Millwall vs Everton
English FA Cup
Date: Saturday, 26 January 2019
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: The Den (London).
A real buzz is expected in and around The Den on Saturday evening when Premier League side Everton come to visit the capital for the 4th round of the FA Cup tie.
It will be a huge occasion for local fans who saw their team knock out the likes of Hull City thanks to a 2-1 victory in the previous round.
The Lions went all the way to the 6th round two years ago when they were eliminated by Tottenham Hotspur after beating three Premier League sides beforehand.
Claiming top flight scalps is not strange to Millwall who will certainly be looking to take advantage of their chances here against Everton.
The hosts are nowhere near promotional challenge in Championship and we can call this clash their game of the season.
They ended the impressive four-win thread (across competitions) with a disappointing 0-2 loss to Blackburn Rovers in the previous home fixture.
Nevertheless, Millwall bounced back last weekend when they claimed a point from Riverside. Neil Harris’ men deserved a victory over Middlesbrough on the occasion, but they allowed a 90th-minute equalizer.
Millwall vs Everton: Head-to-head
The two sides met each other exactly 13 years ago in the third round of the FA Cup.
The first leg saw a 1-1 draw at The Den, while the Toffees advanced thanks to a 1-0 victory in the replay at Goodison.
Both teams scored in five of six head to head affairs between these two likes.
Millwall vs Everton: Prediction
Everton played hit and cold throughout the season in the Premier League. They dropped into the bottom half of the ladder after a disappointing 2-1 defeat to Southampton seven days ago. The loss ended a two-win thread across competitions for Claude Puel and his men.
The Toffees generally struggled for consistency on travels so far in the season. They won only 2, drew 3 and lost 6 of 11 away matches in Premier League. We expect a strong effort from the hosts and we will back them not to lose as the main betting option at the odds of 2.25.
