Gary Rowett’s Millwall and Michael O’Neill’s Stoke City square off at The Den this Saturday on matchday one of the new EFL Championship season. Both clubs start the campaign with top-six aspirations. Last term, the Lions went close, finishing just six points behind sixth-place Luton Town. The Potters massively underachieved, as O’Neill’s boys picked up a measly 62 points and finished in the bottom half. Who will come out on top in this season opener in the capital?

Millwall Preview – Will the Lions start with a home victory?

Millwall had a fine season under Gary Rowett last time around. They made a late dash for the play-offs after picking up five wins in a row in February and March, but the Lions fell short at the end.

Like a whole host of Championship clubs these days, Millwall have Premier League dreams. The top six is the priority, and the Londoners can certainly put themselves in the mix once again.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 0948 GMT, Friday 29 July)

Millwall made themselves tough to beat last term, losing only 13 times. Just four sides suffered fewer defeats, but too many draws hindered their play-off hopes. They will be desperate to kick off this season with three points – the bookies are pricing the home win at 6/5.

Stoke City Preview – Can the Potters leave London with a positive result?

Stoke City were among the big underachievers in the 2021-22 Championship season. They were tipped by many to be in the promotion picture before a ball was kicked, but City finished way down in 14th after winning 17, drawing 11 and losing 18.

Stoke were dreadful away from home in the second half of last season, winning just two of 12. During that spell, they suffered six away defeats. They did mange to win at Blackburn Rovers and West Bromwich Albion in April, however.

City’s success over the Lions in March was their first win in this fixture since December 2018. Millwall won three and drew three of the following six.
