Our football match prediction:
Tuesday’s football game at the Den pits together Millwall and Ipswich Town, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the 2017/2018 Championship campaign. Millwall aim to secure the Championship survival, whilst Ipswich Town are determined to return to secure promotion to the English top flight. The newcomers suffered a 1-0 loss to Nottingham Forest in the opening match of the season, with the team sharing the spoils with Bolton Wanderers in front of home fans at the weekend. The capital club aim to start a winning run in the English second tier, but beating the in-form Tractor Boys is easier said than done. Mick McCarthy’s men are brimming with confidence following back-to-back wins over the likes of Birmingham City and Barnsley and they do not want to stop now. Millwall are tough to beat at home, but we predict that Ipswich Town are going to extend their winning run in the league.
