Millwall Prediction

Recent results have actually taken a turn for the better for the hosts as Millwall have won three of their last five matches in the Championship with victories against Reading, Nottingham Forest and Ipswich Town which has helped lift them away from the relegation zone as The Lions now possess a valuable six point margin ahead of third from bottom club Reading.

However, a 2-0 defeat at home to Blackburn Rovers and a 1-1 draw away at Middlesbrough have followed and they now come up against Premier League outfit Everton, but although they currently occupy a position in the lower reaches of the Championship, Millwall’s results at home in recent times have been encouraging.

Millwall have suffered just two defeats from their last 10 matches on home turf in all competitions which were losses in the Championship to Birmingham City and Blackburn Rovers, but six wins and two draws show that the hosts are no pushovers in their own backyard.

Midfielders Williams and Wallace (4 goals apiece) along with forwards Gregory (7 goals) and Elliott (3 goals) represent the main goal threats for Millwall


Key-Facts – Millwall v Everton

  • Millwall have lost just 2 of their last 10 matches at home
  • Everton have lost 6 of their last 10 matches
  • Everton have won 2 of their last 11 away matches


Everton Prediction

Everton’s recent results have also taken a dip in recent weeks which has started to prompt more murmers of discontent amongst the Everton faithful, so a loss in the nation’s capital against Championship club Millwall probably won’t go down too well with the visiting fans.

Six defeats in their last 10 matches in the Premier League have seen Everton slip down the league table to 11th place after making an early assault near the top six of the league earlier in the season.

Looking at Everton’s results away from Goodison Park, The Toffees have managed to secure just two wins on the road from their 11 matches played, so they’re by no means guaranteed of getting a result at Millwall on Saturday, and could well be vulnerable at the back again here.

Nevertheless, recent results demand a better and harder working performance from Marco Silva’s players this afternoon, and with the likes of midfielder Sigurdsson (9 goals) along with forwards Richarlison (9 goals), Calvert-Lewin (4 goals) and Walcott (3 goals) in their attacking ranks, Everton should at least hit the back of the net here.

Betting Tips Verdict

Millwall’s reasonable form at home along with Everton’s depth in quality should see both teams score in this cup-tie.
