Remember Millwall’s FA Cup run two seasons ago? They knocked out Premier League champions Leicester as well as Bournemouth and Watford, with all these scalps coming at The Den where they will face Everton on Saturday teatime.
There are reasons for getting with the Lions to pull off another so-called shock, with Neil Harris’ side relishing the opportunity to clash with a top flight side in a stadium which is renowned for creating an intimidating atmosphere.
Millwall are sitting nineteenth in the Championship which is about par for a club that has modest resources compared to many teams in that division, although the London team have enjoyed an upsurge in form recently.
They have very respectable home stats of 6-4-4 and they recently enjoyed a four-match winning run against Reading, Forest, Ipswich and Hull before a defeat against Blackburn and a draw at Middlesbrough.
Harris will look forward to the opportunity to pull off another scalp against an Everton side who look out of sorts at this stage of the season and Marco Silva might not be the long-term solution at Goodison Park.
Despite bringing in quality recruits such as Richarlison, Yerry Mina and Lucas Digne, it appears that Silva is struggling to get a team to gel and they come into this match after losing at Southampton last weekend.
Silva might rotate his team for this clash and we’re happy enough to oppose Everton in this clash. A bet on Millwall with a +1 handicap means that they can afford to lose this game by a single goal and we get our money back.
However, we think they are capable of getting at least a point from this game and will place our bets accordingly.
