Millwall vs Sheffield United Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

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

Millwall stretched their winless run to six and suffered their second successive defeat as they lost 2-0 away to West Brom.  On Tuesday night, they were in League Cup action as they entertained Fulham and they lost 3-1.

Sheffield United got back to winning ways at the weekend as they got the better of Preston in a five-goal thriller.  Billy Sharp, David McGoldrick and Chris Basham got the goals to give United three points that the expected goals data indicates their performance deserved.

The two meetings between these sides last season saw the Lions take four points with a 1-1 draw at Bramall Lane and a 3-1 success at the Den.  In fact, the London outfit have lost just one of their last seven against the Yorkshire side.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

I think Sheffield United look worth backing here to continue their good form against an out of sorts Millwall.  The Blades have won their two road games against strugglers in QPR and Bolton and while the Lions are strong at home I think this has been added into the price to make United value.

The last four league fixtures at the Den have seen both teams find the back of the net so backing the Yorkshire outfit to win and both teams to score also makes sense.

Millwall Preview

The Lions started the season well taking five points from their first three but since then they have taken just one from their next six.  They sit 22nd in the table and four of their next five are against teams in the top 14.

At the Den, it has been a mixed bag with a victory over Derby, draws with Middlesbrough and Leeds and a loss to Swansea.  Each of their four this season at their own ground have seen both teams score with three going over 2.5 goals.

A lack of goals has been an issue this season with Millwall only netting seven which is the joint-third worst record in the division with no player netting more than once.  Their defence has a mid-level record conceding 13 goals but have never conceded more than two in a fixture.

Shaun Hutchinson (knee) is their only doubt ahead of this fixture.

Sheffield United Preview

The Blades have now lost just one of their last seven fixtures winning five of these to climb up the table.  They sit in fourth place with 16 points though now face three of their next four on the road.

Away from Bramall Lane, it has been a mixed bag with victories at QPR and Bolton and defeats at Middlesbrough and Bristol City.  Three of these four road fixtures have seen exactly three goals scored.

The 15 goals Sheffield United have scored in the league this season is the joint-fourth highest in the division and is led by Billy Sharp with four goals.  The defence has been solid with just 11 conceded with two clean sheets from nine.
