Our football match prediction:
Mllwall and Bolton Wanderers, the two newly-promoted teams, square off against each other at The Den on day 2 of the 2017/2018 Championship campaign. The Lions suffered a 1-0 loss to Nottingham Forest in their opener and they will be looking to give fans some cheer when they take on Bolton in their first home game of the season. Millwall’s main goal is to secure the Championship survival and, no doubt, the newcomers will leave their hearts on the field in every single match. Their next rivals Bolton suffered a 3-2 loss to Leeds United on home soil in the opening match of the season and, taking everything into account, both sides are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s football match. Taking everything into account, two sides are likely to play out a high-scoring draw in their first ever meeting in the English top flight.

Bolton Wanderers were formed as Christ Church Football Club back in 1874 and three years later they adopted their current name. The Trotters currently compete in the Championship and they play their home games at Macron Stadium, which was opened in 1997. Speaking of the club’s trophies, Bolton Wanderers won the FA Cup on four occasions (1923, 1926, 1929 and 1958), but they have yet to win the Premier League title. The Trotters were producing splendid displays in the 2003/2004 Premier League campaign, with the team finishing the season in eighth position in the standings, which is regarded as the club’s best result in the English top flight. Bolton did well to reach the UEFA Cup knockout stages in the 2007/2008 season; the English outfit eliminated Atletico Madrid in the two-legged tie, but Sporting Lisbon eventually proved to be a big catch for the Trotters. Nigeria international Jay-Jay Okocha is one of the most notable footballers who played for Bolton and he scored 14 goals in 124 appearances in the league for the club. Bury are considered the club’s fiercest rivals.
