Millwall vs Leicester: prediction for the League Cup fixture
On September 22, Millwall will host Leicester in the Round of 32 of the League Cup. Do the hosts have a chance against the formidable opponents? Our answer is in the prediction below.
Millwall struggle to earn points in the Championship. Gary Rowett's men have only eight points after eight rounds and occupy the 18th line in the standings. They have a four-point margin over the last place. In the previous three matches, Millwall got three draws: with Coventry City (1:1), Swansea (0:0), and West Bromwich (1:1).
Leicesterhaveachieved impressive results in the Premier League under Brendan Rogers. But their start to the 2021/2022 season was disappointing: after five rounds, the Foxes have only six points and sit in 12th place. Leicester have not won for three games, and in the last fixture, they lost away to Brighton (1:2). Earlier last week, Leicester failed to beat Napoli in the Champions League. The Foxes were in the lead, but conceded twice in the second half (2:2).
This result was recorded in 3 out of 4 previous away victories of Leicester.
Leicester consistently scored in the second half in the last 4 away games.
This bet won in 3 of the last 5 home games of Millwall.
Leicester are much stronger than their opponents and will be looking to pick up a win in the League Cup. They haven't been delivering good results in the Premier League recently, and need a morale booster. We believe that Millwall would have problems against such an opponent even at the peak of their form, but at the moment they have practically no chance to progress to the last 16. This looks like an easy win for the visitors.
Our prediction - Leicester to win.
Prediction: Leicester to win
Do you agree with this bet?1 votes
Millwall usually score a lot at home and will try to find their chances on counterattacks against Leicester. Leicester scored seven goals in their last four away games, and have always played aggressively in attack. In our opinion, the visitors will control the game, and the hosts will respond with rare counterattacks. We predict more than 2 goals in this fixture.
Our second bet - total over 2.5 goals.
