Reading vs Millwall
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 3rd February 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Madejski Stadium (Reading).
Reading are still closer to the drop-zone than their desired position. The team lies currently just a few places and 6 points above the relegation zone. They took a vital victory over Burton last round which helped them to keep their heads above the water. Bodvarsson picked the man of the match award with his 2 goals in the 1-3 victory. This was The Royals first victory in 9 games and it came against the worst host in the league. Definitely not something to brag about. The team needs to improve their performances as the pressure around the club continues to grow.
Millwall continued to impress. They sit comfortably in mid-table with 9 points cushion over the relegation zone. The team plays well at home and takes most of their points at The Den. Last round they battled at home against high-flying Derby and got a creditable goalless draw.
The interesting game was the round before though as they managed to get their first 3 points on the road. In a game full of drama they defeated Leeds at Elland road with 3-4. They let a complete turnaround only to do one themselves and get the points.

- Reading’s victory over Burton was their first in 9 games

Reading vs Millwall: Predictions
Millwall may have survived their last visit to Leeds to claim their first victory away from home but the team has hardly changed anything. Reading should have enough about themselves to avoid the defeat here. They are in a tough situation but they can get points here.
Most of those teams’ direct clashes have seen goals. This time we don’t have any particular reason to think otherwise. BTTS looks like a good option.
