Millwall vs Sheffield United Championship Prediction by LeagueLane

Millwall vs Sheffield United
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 26 February 2022
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: The Den.

Both these teams are in great form, and are scoring goals at a superb rate. Sheffield are placed sixth in the table at the moment, and with the season about to enter its final stretch, they are harboring hopes of making it to the playoffs.

Or if things fall into place, they could even go after a top-two finish, and thus secure direct promotion to the Premier League. At present, they need a surplus of just five points to climb level with the second-placed Bournemouth.

Meanwhile, Millwall are on a winning streak. They are going after a top-six finish. As things stand, they need to overcome a deficit of seven points to clear the cut-off for the sixth spot.

As these two determined and in-form squads take on each other, expect a cracker of a match-up. And do also expect goals to come in from either end of the pitch.
