Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Saturday’s FA Cup game at The Den pits together Millwall and Crystal Palace, the two local rivals who have not met in a competitive match since April 2013. Back then the two teams played out a goalless draw in the Championship, and yet another close encounter is on the cards. All Jed Wallace, Daniel Ballard, Connor Mahoney, and Ryan Leonard are out of contention with injuries for the home side.
The Eagles, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 3-2 loss to West Ham United. Both Wilfried Zaha and Jordan Ayew are on international duty, while James McArthur is out of contention through injury. Anyhow, the share of spoils is on the cards as Millwall are tough to beat at home. You should know that under 2.5 goals have been netted in eight of their last ten meetings in all competitions.
