Millwall vs Middlesbrough Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture sees two teams in opposite halves of the Championship table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Millwall continued their recent upturn in form by picking up a useful point on the road at Aston Villa last time out. The Lions can consider themselves a little unlucky not to get all three points in a game they created the better scoring opportunities in. Middlesbrough bounced backed to winning ways with a 2-0 home victory over Ipswich in their last match. A goal either side of half-time from Martin Braithwaite and Patrick Bamford allowed them to secure all three points. The last meeting between the sides came in the 2014/15 Championship with Boro winning both coming out on top 3-0 at their own ground and 5-1 at the Den. Patrick Bamford scored in both those matches and will hope that this is a good sign after his goal at the weekend.

Betting Tips and Predictions

It is hard to argue with the prices on offer here Boro are the slight favourites as they are the stronger team but good home form including a victory over Sheffield United shows the Den is not an easy place to come for visiting sides. I would recommend swerving the match markets and looking elsewhere for my bets. The last seven Millwall have played at their own stadium have been level at half-time and I think that looks worth an interest.  In addition, take a bet on the game to have a late goal which has happened in each of the last five for the visitors and time is on your side here with the generous timing of 70:59.

Millwall Preview

It is now just one defeat in five for the Lions though they have also won just one of these meaning three of them have ended all-square. This is the start of a tricky spell with each of the next trio of matches against teams in the top eight though they have played top eight sides in their last two and taken four points. At the Den, it has been a mixed bag recently with two victories, one draw and two defeats with one of the victories coming over Sheff U, though one of the defeats was against struggling Burton. Their last seven in front of their own fans have been level going into the interval. Seven of the last ten Millwall have played have gone under 2.5 goals while just three of these have seen both teams find the back of the net. Four of the last six they have netted have come in the first 20 minutes of a fixture.

Millwall Team News

Jordan Archer (illness), Shane Ferguson (unknown), Fred Onyedinma (groin) and Byron Webster (cruciate) are all doubts.

Middlesbrough Preview

It has been a mixed set of results for Boro lately with three victories and three defeats from their last six. They sit in eighth place just outside the play-off spots and with just one of their next 11 against a top-eight side will hope to climb into the top six. Away from the Riverside Stadium, they have lost their last two games but both came against top-eight opponents and they have not lost on the road to a bottom-half team. Both teams to score has happened in each of their last two and six of seven in all competitions. Around 48% of the goals Middlesbrough have scored this season have come in the opening or final 15 minutes of a game. Seven of the last nine they have conceded have come in the second-half with five of these coming in the 20 minutes just after half-time.

Middlesbrough Team News

Boro have no registered injuries or suspensions ahead of this game.
