Bristol City vs Millwall Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) Championship game from Ashton Gate features two sides who were among the goals in midweek. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Bristol City gained a useful point last time out at Brentford after needing a 90th minute goal from Bobby Reid. They had previously taken the lead in the 5th minute from Josh Brownhill but the Bees fought back to go ahead and in the end a point each was taken. Millwall netted three in their home game with Ipswich but still found themselves going down to a 4-3 loss. The Lions got a goal each from Jed Wallace (who we have been keen on for a while now), Aiden O’Brien and Tom Elliott. These two sides have not met for a few seasons but when they last did in the 2012/13 campaign the London outfit took four points from their two meetings. Four of their last six have produced a total of exactly two or three goals.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Bristol City top the betting market but I still have not seen enough of them to be wanting to get with them at those odds. The Lions could be due to a change of fortunes and although I will be siding with them in other ways I could not put you off them with the security of the draw no bet market or in the double chance option. I instead want to get with the total team goals for the visitors which is priced at generous odds to go over 1.5 considering that they are top of the chances created table in the division and the Robins are still a little shaky at the back. If we think the London outfit look good things for a couple of goals where do we think they will come from. Jed Wallace is a player I always like but I feel that the front duo of Gregory and Morison must be due to net soon. I will take the latter at bigger prices in the anytime market but keep an eye on team-news as Millwall have a few options up top.

Bristol City Preview

It has been a mixed start to the season for Bristol City who started with an opening day victory over Barnsley before a loss to Birmingham was followed up with a useful looking point at Brentford. At home, they have won their two games in all competitions and have netted eight in the process. Ashton Gate has been a fun ground to be at in recent times with six of their last seven going over 2.5. City are the third highest shots on target producers this season with only Millwall and Brentford producing more. Bobby Reid has netted four times but it is Famara Diedhiou who is averaging the most shots on target with four per game.

Millwall Preview

Millwall are one of a handful of sides still chasing their first victory of the season with a solitary draw and two defeats all they have from their first three games. Neil Harris, can take heart from the way his side are creating chances but needs to be worried about the amount they are conceding. On the road, the Lions lost their opening game to Forest which makes nine Championship games without an away victory when looking over two season split. Six of their last nine on their travels in all competitions have gone under 2.5 goals. No side is creating more chances per game than the London outfit but just four goals netted suggests a combination of bad luck and poor finishing is undoing them. Forward pair Lee Gregory and Steve Morison are both averaging three shots per game but have not managed to find the net in the league.
