Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
There will be fireworks when Millwall and Leicester City go head to head at the Den in the FA Cup last 64. The Lions are eyeing their fourth consecutive league win, but they will have a big fish to fry in Saturday’s encounter. Midfielder George Saville misses the FA Cup game through suspension, while both Wes Harding and Casper De Norre are out of contention through injuries. Meanwhile, the Foxes aim to build on back-to-back wins over Cardiff City and Huddersfield Town.
Leicester City, though, are without Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho as the duo is on international duty with the Nigeria national team, while Jamie Vardy remains in the recovery room. As Millwall are tough to beat in London, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Midfielder Kasey McAteer is yet another absentee in the visiting team.
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).
