Millwall vs Swansea City Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday early evening (17:30) is live on Sky Sports and features two sides looking to bounce back after losing last weekend. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Millwall suffered a second successive league loss last Sunday as they went down to a 1-0 defeat at Rotherham. In midweek, they played host to Plymouth in the League Cup and they won that one 3-2. Swansea lost their first match of the season last weekend going down to a 1-0 home loss to Bristol City. In the League Cup, they were in action Tuesday night where they hosted Crystal Palace and lost 1-0. These two sides last met way back in the 2010/11 Championship season so it is hard to read much into the head-to-head record. For what it is worth them home side have won none of their last four meetings.

Betting Tips and Predictions

It is hard to argue with the prices on offer here I could not be backing Millwall given their lack of goals but the same could be said for the visitors so I would recommend avoiding the result market. These two sides have combined for just ten goals this season so I could not put anyone off going low on goals and even no goalscorer. I like the idea of taking on both teams in the time of goal market which is set at 50:00 for the Lions and 69:00 for the Swans.

Millwall Preview

The Lions have made a slow start to the season and after ending the last so well will be disappointed to have just five points from their first five. They sit in 16th though the expected goals data table has them in 18th. At the Den, they have taken four points from their two this season and have lost just one of their previous 17. Their two in 2018/19 in front of their own fans have gone over 2.5 goals and seen both teams score. Millwall have struggled for goals with just five from five in the Championship with no player netting more than once. Their defence has conceded just six but they have kept just one clean sheet.

Millwall Team News

George Saville (concussion) is a doubt.

Swansea City Preview

The Swans have made a decent start to life in the Championship with two victories, two draws and one defeat from five. They sit tenth with eight points while the expected goals data table has them a little lower in 15th. Away from the Liberty Stadium, they have taken four points from two though have won just one of their 13 last competitive games. The Welsh outfit have failed to net in five of their last seven on their travels. Swansea have scored just five times in the league this season with Ollie McBurnie having grabbed three of these. They do have a strong defence though with the joint-second best record in the division of only four conceded.

Swansea City Team News

Wilfried Bony (cruciate) and Declan John (back) are closing in on returns while Jay Fulton (broken hand), Cameron Carter-Vickers (groin), Ollie McBurnie (toe) and Kristoffer Nordfeldt (groin) are all doubts.
