Sheffield United vs Millwall
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 13th April 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Bramall Lane (Sheffield).
Sheffield United is locked in with Leeds to a fight to the death for the second and last direct-promotion spot to the Premier League. Rather than go through the formality and uncertainty of the playoffs, United could just put in five good performances and gain a walk over to the first division in England. In that regards, they hope their local rival, Sheffield Wednesday might do them a favor.
Leeds is taking on Wednesday this weekend, while United play hosts to relegation-threatened Millwall. The visitors are just two points away from the relegation line and are running away from the likes of Wigan, Reading, etc.
In the battle between two teams from extreme ends, the advantage should go to the top-tier side, who also are the hosts.

Sheffield United vs Millwall Prediction
Sheffield is one of the best teams in the competition and is chasing a direct-promotion spot to the Premier League, after all, but ensuring the playoffs. On top of that, they are at home and are taking on a relegation-threatened Millwall, who struggles on the road.
Millwall was winless in 17 of their last 21 games away from home and won just twice in their last nine fixtures. Sheffield, meanwhile, avoided a loss in 12 of their last 13 ties and won eight of their last ten at home.
Moreover, United kept six clean sheets in their last seven appearances at home, whereas Millwall conceded two or more in three of the last four away fixtures. A bet on the hosts to win, and to score the first goal of the game would be right on the money.
