Our prediction for this Championship match:
Tuesday’s football match at The Den pits together Millwall and Wolverhampton, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the 2017/2018 Championship season. The Lions aim to secure survival, whilst the Wolves are determined to secure automatic promotion to the Premier League. Wolverhampton recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Ipswich Town at the weekend, with Ivan Cavaleiro scoring the winner for the hosts on the stroke of half time. Millwall, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Derby County at iPro Stadium and they face an uphill task in the game against Nuno Espirito Santo’s troops as well. The Wolves have been impressive at the back of late and it has to be noted that they are eyeing their fifth consecutive clean sheet in the English second tier. Taking everything into account, we predict the visitors will give fans yet another reason for celebration on Tuesday.
