Millwall vs Brentford Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides in the top-half with hopes of breaking into the play-offs. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Millwall are now ten unbeaten after winning 2-1 against Hull at the KC Stadium on Tuesday night. The Lions took an early lead through George Saville extended it through Jake Cooper and held off some late Tigers pressure to take all three points. Brentford got back to winning ways on Tuesday night as they defeated Burton 2-0 at the Pirelli Stadium. A 60th minute own-goal put them ahead and they wrapped up the victory in the 80th minute through Ollie Watkins. The reverse fixture came in mid-October at Griffin Park and the home side won 1-0 that day through a Romaine Sawyers goal. It extended to five head-to-head meetings the unbeaten run of Brentford.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Bookmakers are having trouble splitting the pair with at the time of writing the prices being identical on both sides to win. I must agree and as such would recommend looking at other markets to find the value. 11 of 18 Millwall home games have been level going into the break while 66% of the goals Brentford have scored this season have come in the second-half so backing the game to be level at the interval makes sense. Both teams need the three points though to gain ground on the play-off race so backing the second 45 minutes to be the highest scoring also makes sense.

Millwall Preview

The Lions have won four of their last five and are unbeaten in their last ten in the Championship. They sit in 11th place just six point behind the play-offs with only two of their next six against sides in the top ten. At the Den, they are unbeaten in their last ten though four of their last five have finished all-square. Both teams to score has happened in four of their last five at their own ground and seven of their last nine. In just one of their last 11 and two of their last 15 league matches have Millwall failed to find the back of the net. In 20 of their 36 games this season they have been level going into the break and in 12 of 18 when just looking at home ties.

Millwall Team News

Aiden O’Brien (ankle) is a doubt while Byron Webster (knee) has been ruled out for the season.

Brentford Preview

Three victories from their last four and just one defeat in their last five has allowed the Bees to keep chase with the play-off spots. They are just five points behind Middlesbrough in sixth with a game in hand and three of their next four at home. Away from Griffin Park, it has been a mixed bag of late with four victories and four defeats from their last eight. None of their last six on their travels have seen both teams find the back of the net. Around 66% of the goals that Brentford have scored this season have come in the second-half with 31% in the final 15 minutes. Ollie Watkins is their leading league scorer this season with ten goals and has three from his last three.

Brentford Team News

Rico Henry (knee) is a long-term absentee.
