Our prediction for this Championship match:
Following three consecutive wins over the likes of QPR, Sunderland and Ipswich Town Aston Villa shared the spoils with Leeds United at Elland Road in their last league fixture. The Villans remained in the play-offs berth in the Championship standings, but the team’s main goal is to secure automatic promotion to the Premier League. Aston Villa are eyeing their third straight win at their Villa Park and seeing that their rivals Millwall are not regarded as good travelers, we predict Steve Bruce’s men will pick up all three points from Saturday’s football game. The Lions, on the other hand, did well to beat Sheffield United in front of home fans at the weekend, with the team putting an end to their six-game winless run in the English tier. However, the capital club have yet to record a win on the road in the 2017/2018 season and they are unlikely to shock Aston Villa on Matchday 21.
Highlighted Player (Henri Lansbury):
Henri Lansbury began his youth career at Norwich City, but he soon moved to Arsenal. Lansbury made his first-team debut for the Gunners on 31 October, 2007 in the League Cup win over Sheffield United. It has to be noted that he came from the bench and replaced Theo Walcott.

He has established himself as a first-team regular and he made 128 league appearances for the Reds before the start of the 2016/2017 Championship campaign. Henri Lansbury has 21 caps for England U21 team and he used to play for England U16, U17 and U19 teams in the past as well. In September 2011, he produced his best performance for the U21 team in a thrilling 6-0 win over Azerbaijan. Lansbury scored a brace against Azerbaijan and provided two assists for his teammates back then.
Highlighted Team (Millwall):

The Lions share rivalry with Charlton as well and the two teams first met back in 1921. The Den is Milwall’s home ground at the capacity of the stadium, which was opened in 1993, is 20.146.
The capital club did well to make it to the 2003/2004 FA Cup final, but Premier League giants Manchester United proved to be a big catch for the Lions. The Red Devils won the game 3-0, but despite suffering the heavy loss in the title game, Milwall booked their place in the UEFA Cup. However, Ferencvaros of Hungary proved to be a big catch for the English outfit in the two-legged tie.
Australia international Tim Cahill is considered one of the most notable footballers who whore Millwall shirt (1998-2004).
