Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
Salford and Rotherham take on each other in a highly-anticipated game at Peninsula Stadium in the Carabao Cup round 1. The Lions have been struggling in preseason, with the team losing to the likes of Preston, Stockport, and Accrington. The League Two side obviously struggle in front of goal, and it is no wonder Rotherham United are seen as favourites to win Saturday’s football game.
The Millers, on the other hand, impressed in their first warm-up match, with the team crushing Mansfield Town 3-0, and we predict that they are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration. Freddie Ladapo, who scored 14 goals in the League One last term, is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. Anyhow, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Rotherham United, who will compete in the Championship in the upcoming season.

Highlighted Team (Rotherham):
Rotherham United are an English club that compete in the Championship. Rotherham United are located in Rotherham, South Yorkshire and they play their home games at New York Stadium and the capacity of the venue is 12,021.
The club was founded in 1925 as a merger between Rotherham County and Rotherham Town. The colour of Rotherham’s home kit was originally yellow and black, but nowadays they were red and white jerseys. The Millers made it to the FA Cup fifth round on two occasions (1952/1953, 1967/1968) and they have yet to play in the Premier League.
Rotherham United have won the Football League One twice (1950/1951, 1980/1981), but the club’s biggest success is participation in the 1960/1961 League Cup final. Sheffield United are regarded as Rotherham United’s fiercest rivals, but the likes of Sheffield Wednesday and Doncaster could be considered Rotherham’s big rivals as well.
