Our football match prediction:
High-flying Leeds United will be looking to record their fifth consecutive win in the Championship when they take on Millwall at the Den. The Whites head into Saturday’s football match following a 2-0 win over Birmingham City and it has to be noted that they are eyeing their fifth straight clean sheet in the league. Leeds United are brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to London and a win over the newcomers would see them retain top position in the standings. The Lions, on the other hand, played out a 2-2 draw with Queens Park Rangers in the local derby on Tuesday evening and they remained in the danger zone in the Championship table. Millwall face an uphill task in Saturday’s clash against Leeds United and we predict that the visitors are going to extend their winning run in the English second tier to five games.
