This campaign, they have been allotted the luxury to begin at home, and fans hope they could set the tone for the rest of the year with a good performance. But the visiting Preston might have a thing or two to say about it.

Millwall vs Preston Prediction
Millwall was one of the weakest of the lot in the last edition of this competition. And by the looks of their recent games, their form has not seen any improvement. At present, they were winless in ten of their last thirteen games and is so in their last five at home, and in ten of their last eleven home appearances too.
Preston, on the contrary, was unbeaten in six of their last eight match-ups and had a four-tie winning run in the midst of the stretch. They also won four of their last five away ties, and kept clean sheets in all four, along with them scoring twice or more each.
Moreover, the last two h2h encounters saw Millwall losing, and conceding thrice or more.
As these stats overwhelmingly suggest, count on the guests to have a comfortable season-opener.
