Our prediction for this Championship match:
Even though many people expected that Cardiff City would suffer a dip in form, the Bluebirds continue to impress in the Championship. The Welsh club proved their worth in a hard-fought win at Middlesbrough in their last league match, with Joe Ralls scoring a late winner from the penalty spot for Neil Warnock’s troops. Cardiff City aim to retain top position in the standings and seeing that their rivals Millwall often struggle on the travels, we predict that the hosts will emerge triumphant in Saturday’s football match. You should know that the Bluebirds are eyeing their fifth consecutive win at home of the season. The Lions failed to score in five of their last six away games in the Championship and they are likely to return home empty-handed from the trip to Wales. Under 2.5 goals were scored in each of their last six meetings in the league and a low-scoring affair is on the cards.
Highlighted Player (Aron Gunnarsson):
Aron Gunnarsson started his youth career at Akureyri and after making 11 appearances for the senior team, he joined AZ Alkmaar in 2006. The midfielder, who was born on 22 April, 1988, was not happy at AZ as he played no more than one game for the Dutch outfit in two seasons and, as a result, he decided to leave the club on 17 June, 2008. The Icelandic footballer signed a three-year deal with Coventry City and it has to be noted that he scored 6 goals in 123 league appearances for the English club. On 8 July, 2011, he joined Cardiff City on a free transfer and he made 45 appearances for the Welsh outfit in the 2014/2015 Championship campaign, scoring four goals for the club. Aron Gunnarson, though, played just 28 games for the Bluebirds in the 2015/2016 season and you should have in mind that he netted two goals for the team in the league. Gunnarson represented Iceland at the 2016 Euro finals and he made his 64th appearance for the national team at the tournament in France.

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.
