Our prediction for this Championship match:
There will be fireworks when Millwall and Norwich City take on each other at the Den in what is expected to be a close Championship encounter. The Lions desperately needed a win against Queens Park Rangers and they managed to get one, with the team recording their first league win since November 11. The capital club are eager to keep on climbing the standings, but Friday’s clash will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but Casper De Norre remains in the recovery room.
The Canaries, on the other hand, suffered a 1-0 loss to WBA on Boxing Day, but it has to be noted that Borja Sainz was sent off after 32 minutes. The Spanish forward misses out through suspension, while both Josh Sargent and Jakob Sorensen are sidelined with injuries. Anyhow, the share of spoils is on the horizon as Millwall are tough to beat in London.
