Millwall vs Stoke Prediction & Match Preview

Millwall vs Stoke
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 27th April 2019
Kick-off at 13.30 UK/ 14.30 CET
Venue: The Den (London).

Two teams have already been relegated from the Championship, and Millwall is fighting off Rotherham to keep the last safe spot in the competition for themselves. The former does have a game in hand, while Rotherham has to make up three points from just six left to play for. This coming on top of their next fixture against West Brom, one of the best teams in the league.

Stoke managed to score and draw their last tie, against the league-topper, and potential champion, Norwich. Considering they are taking on a relegation-battler next, the upper hand should go for them, but at this stage in the season, taking on a low-in-quality, relegation-threatened team, is far more dangerous than a safe, mid-level side.

Millwall vs Stoke Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Stoke won the last six games in a row.

  • Nine of the last eleven matches had under 2.5 goals.
  • Only one tie at this venue has had three or more goals.

Millwall vs Stoke Prediction

As far as Millwall is concerned, this game is a final. They have an extra-game advantage over Rotherham, who is trying to get replaced with Millwall and avoid relegation. Considering that they are at home, Millwall should have some good say in the outcome of the tie and also take into account that Stoke is already safe, and need not strain themselves too hard for a win.

As such, goals will be scarce in this fixture – since Millwall would treat the match as if a virtual playoff for safety and Stoke is already famed for defense. Moreover, nine of the last eleven h2h ties and all of those at this venue bar one had fewer than three goals. Keeping in line with the trend, expect no more than two goals this weekend.
