Millwall vs Burton Albion Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture will mark only the third time this pair have met in a competitive game. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Millwall will be looking to bounce after a road defeat to Sheffield Wednesday as they went down 2-1. Tom Elliott got their goal but they could not find a further breakthrough and the misery was compounded when Jake Cooper was dismissed in injury time. Burton were involved in a six-goal thriller with Barnsley but sadly come out the wrong end going down 4-2. Lloyd Dyer and and Matty Lund got their goals but it ended in a third straight defeat for the Brewers. It is one victory each from their two previous meetings both of which came during the 2015/16 season in League One. Aiden O’Brien and Lee Gregory who both scored in the match at the Den are still at the Lions.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Millwall are the most likely winners but the prices on offer suggest they are a top six Premier League side at home to a bottom half side. They are not and while they are a better team the prices do not offer value. Over 2.5 goals has happened in four of the last six Lions home games and in eight of the last 14 for the Brewers in all competitions and this looks the selection here as bookmakers make it the outsider of two when it should be the marginal favourite. Albion have been level at half-time in each of their last four and they look worth a small interest to be level as the London outfit have also been all-square in seven of their last eight in the league.

Millwall Preview

It is just one victory and four points from their last five fixtures for the Lions who are struggling for form. They are thought about to embark on a decent run of games with none of their next four against team in the top half. At the Den, they have looked good in recent times winning four of their last five keeping clean sheets in three of these. The 14 they have netted at their own ground has them the third highest home scorers in the division. Seven of their last eight in the league have been level at half-time and six of these have been goalless going into the interval. 63% of the goals they have scored have come in the second-half with 25% in the 15 minutes after the break.

Millwall Team News

Shaun Williams and Byron Webster (both knee) will miss out while Jake Cooper is suspended.

Burton Albion Preview

The Brewers are amid a poor run that has seen them take just two points from their last seven fixtures. They are shipping goals having conceded 16 from their last six while netting just three themselves. Away from the Pirelli Stadium, they have no win in their seven games but have drawn three of their last four. Albion have netted just once on their travels and in none of their last six. A goal from Lloyd Dyer in midweek saw him become the first Burton player to have netted more than once in the Championship this season. Each of their last four has seen them level at the break.
