Millwall vs Sunderland Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

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

Millwall come into the game in good form and won 1-0 away to Burton in their last league fixture. A Ben Marshall goal in the 61st minute secured a deserved three points for the Lions on the road. Sunderland were involved in a dramatic game at the Stadium of Light as they drew 3-3 with Middlesbrough in a tie that also saw both sides have a man dismissed. Joel Asoro, Jonny Williams and Callum McManaman got their goals while Jake Clarke-Salter was the player they had sent-off. The reverse fixture came in mid-November in the North-East and the game ended honours even in a 2-2 draw. Lewis Grabban and Adam Matthews netted for the Black Cats while George Saville grabbed a brace for the London side.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Millwall can and should win this game but at the prices I will not be rushing to back them while they have good form the tendency to draw the odd home game would leave me a little worried about backing them. I cannot though make a case for backing Sunderland so I would look to other markets. No side has been level more going into the break than the Lions (20 of 34) and as such backing the game to be all-square at half-time looks the play. I think they can eventually break the Black Cats down but with the time of the first goal set at 46:00 I would be saying NO in this market.

Game to be level at half-time

No Millwall goal before 46:00

Millwall saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Sunderland saw over 1.5 goals in 9 out of their last 10 games played

Millwall Preview

The Lions have taken 18 points from their last eight matches a run that has seem them go from wanting to get away from the relegation zone to dreaming of the play-offs. They sit in 12th place but are just seven points behind Sheffield United in sixth place. At the Den, they are now nine league games without defeat though three of their last four have finished all-square. Games at their own ground tend to be low-scoring with just eight goals from the last five. Just one of the last six Millwall have played in the Championship have gone over 2.5 goals and just two have seen both teams score. Each of their last four and six of their last seven goals have come in the second-half.

Sunderland Preview

It is now six without a victory for the Black Cats though for those looking for some sort of hope it is two draws from their last four. They are bottom of the table and five points away from the team in fourth bottom with four of their next five against teams in the top-half. Away from the Stadium of Light, they have won just one of their last seven though they have picked up good points at Wolves and Bristol City. Four of their last six on the road have gone over 2.5 though three of their last four at bottom half sides have gone under 2.5 goals. The last seven Sunderland league fixtures have seen at least one goal netted during the opening 45 minutes. Around 65% of their goals this season have come in the second-half with 27% in the final 15 minutes.

Sunderland Team News

Jake Clarke-Salter while miss the game through suspension. Kazenga LuaLua (unknown), Ovie Ejaria (thigh), Marc Wilson, Darron Gibson (both groin) and Jack Rodwell (hamstring) are doubts while Duncan Watmore (knee) and Robin Ruitter (broken finger) are out for the season.
