Our prediction for this Championship match:
Buoyed by a 2-1 win over Huddersfield Town, Norwich City will look to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they host Millwall to their Carrow Road on Friday. The Canaries recorded their first win of the season on Tuesday evening, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to return to the Premier League. Key attacker Teemu Pukki misses the midweek game with a foot injury, and he is rated doubtful for the Millwall clash.
The Lions, on the other hand, have been playing some high-scoring games of late, with the team obviously struggling at the back. Since the capital club struggle on the travels, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on Norwich, who are seen as one of the main candidates for promotion. All Mason Bennett, Tom Bradshaw, and Zian Flemming should miss out with injuries for the away side.
Highlighted Player (Grant Hanley):
Grant Hanley is Scottish footballer who plays for Norwich City as defender. Hanley was born in Dumfries, Scotland, on November 20, 1991 and he started his youth career at Queen of the South. After ending his spells with Crewe Alexandra and Rangers, the Scottish player joined English club Blackburn Rovers, where he started his senior career.
After scoring eight goals in 183 appearances for the Riversiders in league matches, he moved to fellow English club Newcastle United in July, 2016 for an undisclosed fee. Grant Hanley, though, made no more than 10 appearances for Newcastle United in the Championship before joining Norwich City. The 191-cm-tall defender made his full international debut for Scotland against Wales on in May, 2011.
He scored his first goal for the Scotland national football team in a 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Wales. His contract with Norwich City should expire on June 30, 2021.
Highlighted Team (Millwall):
Based in Bermonsdey, South East London, Millwall are a football club whose supporters have often been associated with hooliganism. West Ham United are considered the club’s biggest rivals and there have always been fireworks in clashes between the two teams.
The Lions share rivalry with Charlton as well and the two teams first met back in 1921. The Den is Milwall’s home ground at the capacity of the stadium, which was opened in 1993, is 20.146.
The capital club did well to make it to the 2003/2004 FA Cup final, but Premier League giants Manchester United proved to be a big catch for the Lions. The Red Devils won the game 3-0, but despite suffering the heavy loss in the title game, Milwall booked their place in the UEFA Cup. However, Ferencvaros of Hungary proved to be a big catch for the English outfit in the two-legged tie.
Australia international Tim Cahill is considered one of the most notable footballers who whore Millwall shirt (1998-2004).
