Our prediction for this Championship match:
Millwall will be looking to put an end to their six-game winless run in the Championship when they square off against Sheffield United at the Den on Saturday afternoon. The Lions sit in the danger zone in the standings ahead of the visit of United and a win over Chris Wilder’s troops should see them regain their spot in top two. Millwall have been struggling in front of goal of late and it has to be noted that they failed to score in three of their last four league fixtures in the English second tier. Sheffield United, on the other hand, played out a 1-1 draw with Birmingham City at the weekend and, as a result, they remained in third position in the Championship table. Seeing that their rivals Millwall have been struggling to find their form in recent weeks, we predict the Blades will emerge triumphant in Saturday’s football match in the suburbs of London.

The Blades finished the 2016/2017 League One campaign in top position in the standings, with the team collecting exactly 100 points in the process. Sheffield United last competed in the Premier League in the 2006/2007 season and they were more than unfortunate not to secure the top flight survival. The Blades finished the season in 18th place in the process and it has to be noted that they were level on points with Wigaan Athletic, who managed to avoid the relegation to the English second tier. Sheffield United welcome their rivals at Bramal Lane, the stadium which was opened on April 30, 1855. The current capacity of the venue is 32.702.
