Millwall vs Fulham Match Preview
Millwall were defeated at home by West Brom the prior game week. The scoreline was 0-2 in favor of the guests, and this was the fourth winless game in a row for Millwall, as well as their third loss in four matches.
This has been a difficult stretch for Millwall, with several games against teams from the top-tier. After their losses against Leeds, and West Brom – the first and second teams in the league table, the squad now lock horns with the third-placed Fulham.
As per the trend, Millwall should expect this encounter to go awry as well.
Meanwhile, Fulham recorded a hard-fought 0-1 win on the road the prior game week against Blackburn. It was the fifth unbeaten league fixture on the trot for the team, and also the fourth win in five Championship games.
In the same period, Leeds lost four of their five league match-ups, and as of now, the two teams are level on points.
If Fulham are able to maintain this form, they easily could take hold of the second spot in the table, and avoid the playoffs altogether.
Millwall vs Fulham Prediction
Fulham are a team that just got demoted from the Premier League. As such, they have the lessons from taking on some of the best teams in the world, and this will definitely come in handy.
The team is also placed third in the table, and by the looks of things, have the potential to climb to the second position. Moreover, they were unbeaten in nine of their last eleven overall match-ups, and had won five of the past seven. On the road, they had remained invincible in 11 of their former 15 trips.
On the other hand, Millwall are winless in their prior four games (of which three were losses), and had lost their past two games at home without even scoring a goal. In addition, they had also lost the prior four straight h2h clashes against this opponent, and have scored a total of 3 goals in the last 22 years against them.
Meanwhile, just keep note that Fulham had scored four goals in the latest h2h encounter alone. Furthermore, in the last 22 years, only once have Millwall won against this rival, and it had come six years back with a 0-1 scoreline.
Taking into account these observations, expect the guests Fulham to put forth a classy performance and post the three points on the board. Still, to be on the safe side, we will opt for some safer punts.
