Millwall vs Plymouth Argyle
England – League Cup
Date: Wednesday, 29 August 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: The Den, London.
Neil Harris hoped to take advantage of the easier schedule and get worthy away points on the board from matches against Sheffield Wednesday and Rotherham United. However, Millwall return to the capital with zero points from these two ties scoring just one goal in the process. Can they find the winning formula and get their campaign on track on Wednesday evening when a League One opposition Plymouth Argyle come to visit The Den?
The visitors are ideal opponents for Millwall to bounce back from recent failures as the Pilgrims are struggling badly to find the right form at the start of the new season. The visitors sit at the rock-bottom of the League One standings with just two points from the opening five rounds.

Millwall vs Plymouth Argyle: Prediction
Derek Adams will have a very challenging task to raise the spirits inside his dressing room after the Pilgrims suffered a demolishing 1-5 defeat to Peterborough United in the weekend’s league clash at Home Park. Moreover, Plymouth Argyle did not have much luck in the most recent history of their League Cup appearances as they finished their runs in opening rounds in last six years. The horrendous streak was ended two weeks ago when Yann Songo’o made the difference in the clash with Bristol City away at Ashton Gate.
Millwall defeated Gillingham on penalties after a goalless draw in the regular time in their first round clash. They went on to beat Derby County in their third home game of the season. The Lions are yet to suffer a defeat at home, they’ll be up against the struggling lower-division opposition here, and we just can’t predict anything else but a confident home victory on the occasion.
