Sheffield Wednesday vs Millwall
English League Championship
Date: Wednesday, 22nd August 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Hillsborough (Sheffield).
Sheffield Wednesday hosts last year’s pleasant surprise Millwall searching for their first victory of the season.
Wednesday had a very disappointing last season to say the least. The team continues to struggle since the start of this campaign and pressure starts to build up quickly. Luhukay looks already feeling the pressure and this may affect both his and his player’s confidence.
The Owls are having a very difficult start of the season having won just a single point in 3 games. The team struggles at both ends of the pitch. They conceded 3 goals in the opening day followed by another 2 questionable performances. Last week they suffered a defeat at the hands of Brentford in a game which the hosts were the dominants side at all times.
Millwall impressed last season following their promotion. This year the team also looks stable producing some good results. The Lions have won already 5 points in 3 games while playing against some of the top teams in the league – Middlesbrough and Derby.
At the weekend they managed to snatch a 2-1 home victory against Frank Lampard’s side Derby. This clearly shows both ambition and capabilities making the team a dangerous foe. Two goals in the first half followed by a mere consolidation goal for Derby in the second meant the team had won their first victory of the season.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Millwall: Predictions
