Sheffield Wednesday vs Millwall Match Preview

Sheffield were defeated on the road 2-1 by Wigan the last match-day. The hosts scored the winner in the 90th minute, once again pointing to the failure of the Wednesday defense.

Meanwhile, Leeds lost 3-2 on the road against Leeds the previous game week. It might be hard to believe, but the guests were leading 0-2 at half time, before conceding three unanswered goals in the next 45 minutes.

Despite good performance from the offense, Millwall once again failed on the road due to the lack of cohesion at the back.

Going on, Sheffield had found the back of the net in 18 of their last 21 fixtures, and did so at home in 14 of their previous 18 appearances at home. 

Meanwhile, Millwall netted goals in an impressive 35 of their last 39 overall fixtures, and did the same in 19 of their preceding 22 road trips.

Moreover, the toppers of the table, Leeds, have scored a total of 40 goals so far this league season, while Sheffield are just behind with 40, and Millwall with 38.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Millwall Prediction

In regards to result this Saturday, consider the fact that Millwall have a total of three wins from their last fifteen road trips, and that they have lost their prior two overall games.

On the other hand, Sheffield have the home advantage, and they have lost a total of just five times in front of the home crowd this season. Also, one of these losses had come against Everton in the EFL Cup.

In addition, home teams have won four of the previous five h2h clashes, and six of the last eight h2h wins had gone to Sheffield. Importantly, Wednesday have been unbeaten at this venue against this opponent in the last 15 years.

As such, expect Sheffield Wednesday to extend their streak and register another win this weekend.

However, consider these observations – Millwall had won the reverse fixture, Sheffield conceded five goals alone in their latest home game, nine of the previous eleven h2h clashes had goals from both teams, and only one face-to-face encounter had failed to have goals from both teams at this venue since 2001.

In addition, take into account the commendable performance of Millwall’s offense in the last several match-days as well, and we arrive to the conclusion that the BTTS bet holds a great deal of potential this Saturday.
