Millwall vs Swansea City
2018/19 EFL Championship
Date: Saturday, 1 September 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: The Den (London).
Millwall have returned to the winning ways with another great performance in front of the home crowd, as they beat Plymouth Argyle 3-2 in League Cup on Wednesday, and they now host Swansea for their Matchday 6 clash hoping to build on the streak at the Den and bag important league points!
The Lions have suffered narrow losses at both Sheffield Wednesday and Rotherham United beforehand but we’ve seen them more confident at this ground, where a streak of three wins and a draw against Boro surely has manager Neil Harris hopeful his men can take from it! They’ve been scoring numbers of goals and Swans could struggle to shut them down.
Swansea have a troubled streak now behind them and have to bounce back quickly, as they earned just two points in three Championship games and suffered losses to both Bristol City and Crystal Palace in their last two outings. Graham Potter has obviously struggled to find a cure for their woes in the attacking third, though, with just two goals scored on those four occasions.
Millwall vs Swansea: Head-to-head
- The sides have last met in April 2011, where Swansea caused an upset and snatched a 0-2 win at this ground.
- Millwall have proven tough rivals beforehand, as they earned two draws and a win in three games beforehand.
- We’ve seen goals on both ends in four of their last five matchups across competitions.
Millwall vs Swansea: Prediction
Millwall will now hope to build on their great streak at home ground and we do see them getting to their fourth win in a row, as we back them at 2.04. They’ve been very solid in the attacking third at the Den and we do feel Swansea could have their hands full.
However, the Lions have also struggled to keep clean sheets recently and with that in mind, we do feel we’re in for another exciting and narrow head-to-head contest. We’ll thus also go for goals and back Over 2.5 goals FT at 2.07, which does seem great value especially for those who share our belief we’ll see a winner on the day.
