Millwall vs Sheffield Wednesday
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 12th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: The Den (London).
The Lions caused a major upset at home, in their FA Cup tie against Everton. Giving no respect to a fierce Premier League squad, the hosts pulled off a magnificent comeback and progressed to the next stage of the competition.
The visitors had drawn first blood and tried to get to the dressing room with the first half in their kitty. But Neil Harris’s men equalized in the second minute of injury time after the regulation 45 had run over.
Later in the 72nd, the guests added one more. The home team didn’t wait long to hit back. In the 75th minute, they equalized once again.
The tie looked like it would have to be played once more, because of the draw. But Murray Wallace appeared savior with a 90+4th-minute winner to give his team the chance to take part in the 5th round of FA Cup.
The Owls also left things late to happen in their away fixture against Ipswich. The match droned on without any goal from both the teams and looked like the spoils would have been shared. But in the 90th minute, Lucas Joao came out of nowhere to present three valuable points to his team.
Millwall vs Sheffield Wednesday Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last nine games in a row had both sides on the scoresheet.
- 10 of the last 12 fixtures had over 2.5 goals.
- Every meeting in this decade, at The Den, had goals from both squads.
- Both the hosts and the visitors have failed just once in finding the back of the net, at this stadium.
- Disregarding a game in 2003, the away team of the day has never failed to slot one past the opposing defense.
Millwall vs Sheffield Wednesday Prediction
Both these teams average 2.6 goals each in their overall fixtures, 2.5 in their home-ties, and 2.8 in their away matches. Additionally, Neil Harris’s men have found the back of the net in 19 of their last 22 home-ties, and their counterparts have done so in 32 of their last 40 match-ups, and in 19 of their last 25 away games.
Going on, overwhelmingly, every time these two took the pitch on opposite sides, since 2006, the game ended with goals from either side. And, for the last four years, every h2h tie had three or more goals.
Considering the heroics of their offense in the recent ties too, I expect both to chip in and record at least three goals in total this Tuesday.
