Swansea vs Millwall
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 9th February 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Liberty Stadium (Swansea).
The Lions will be dejected that they missed out on three points and that too a rare occurrence, in their last match-day, owing to a 90th-minute penalty. It had been ages since the team recorded a win on the road, and it was tough to watch the players’ faces after the final whistle. Middlesbrough should consider themselves lucky for escaping with a draw.
The Swans will be overjoyed that they are one among the last 16 in the FA Cup. Against Gillingham, the group posted a comprehensive win, with a 4-1 scoreline. With 61% of ball possession and 19 shots on the goal, the hosts were really on song in the tie. A week later, they have another chance to raise their confidence level even higher, considering one of the worst teams on the road is about to visit them.
Swansea vs Millwall Head-to-head (h2h)
- Three of the last four, and four of the last six wins belong to the Jacks.
- 7 of the last 13 games ended with only one or none of the teams on the scorecard.
- Four of the last seven fixtures at this venue ended in the same manner.
- The visitors had a streak of four consecutive games without a goal at the Liberty Stadium, in the last seven match-days.
Swansea vs Millwall Prediction
Graham Potter’s men were unbeaten in seven of their last eight games, and in seven of their last ten at home. The Swans have lost only once against this opposition in the last 12 years, and also recorded four of the last six overall h2h wins, and four of the last five at their home. The Lions, who were winless in 14 of their last 15 away matches, will surely lose this fixture.
Neil Harris’s men have been struggling to find the back of the net in the recent weeks, and especially on the road, they have found it extra hard. The team from Wales will surely take this into account while laying down their strategy. Their solid defense line has shown up most of the time when it mattered, and principally against lower-tier teams. Expect a clean sheet by the home-team.
