Millwall vs Stoke Citye
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 30 July 2022
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: The Den.
Millwall had missed out on a ticket to the playoffs the last season by the tiniest of margins and they will be determined to make amends for that miss. Meanwhile Stoke had finished in the bottom half of the table.
They are going through a worrying stretch of performances at the moment and are letting in goals in huge numbers. Most of these recent games have ended in losses for them and on top of that they are also on the road.
It needs to be mentioned that the state of their defense has been even poor in away games lately.
Going on they had remained winless in 29 of their league games the previous season and all along they had also found it difficult to find the back of the net consistently.
Meanwhile Millwall were unbeaten in 33 of their total 38 league fixtures and they needed a surplus of just 6 points to qualify for the playoffs.
It was definitely a painful miss for them and as a result they will be determined to not drop any unnecessary points at all, even if this is the starting phase of the campaign.
They had scored goals in plenty during this run and have continued this goal-scoring form. On top of that they are also at home and here they have been a tough nut to crack for visiting teams.
Going on they also have a good head-to-head record against this opponent over the years and judging all these observations it is expected that we are about to witness a victory for Millwall this Saturday.
