Millwall vs Leicester City

, KO: 19:45 Apr 9, 2024, The Den
Leicester City

Having climbed to the summit of the Championship, Leicester City will be looking to tighten their grip as they travel to Millwall on Tuesday. Millwall have done some good work at home and could make things difficult but Leicester appear to be building momentum and should have the edge here.

Millwall are coming off a 1-0 defeat at Huddersfield Town in their previous Championship fixture. They offered little in attack but were tight at the back and looked to be holding out for a draw before conceding the winner deep into added time.

That result extends Millwall’s poor form as they are now winless in their last four Championship matches. Neil Harris’ men have been beaten three times in that run and are now just two points above the relegation zone.

One positive for Millwall is that they can build on their recent home form having claimed two wins and a draw in their last three matches at the Den. However, they have already been beaten in front of their fans by Leicester City having lost 3-2 in the FA Cup back in January.

Leicester City travel to the Den off the back of a 2-1 victory over Birmingham City last time out in the Championship. Goals in each half from Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall and Stephy Mavididi were enough to earn them the win.

That was the second straight win for Leicester City, who appear to be finding their feet again after struggling in recent weeks. With their title rivals stumbling, the result was enough to take them one point clear at the top of the standings.

A slight problem for Leicester City is that they are a bit erratic on their travels and lost 1-0 at Bristol City in their previous away fixture. However, they are unbeaten in seven of their last 10 away matches, claiming five wins in that run.

How the bookies view it

Leicester City have the upper hand among the bookies and are priced at 7/10 by bet365 to claim the win. A victory for Millwall is valued at 4/1 by Paddy Power while a draw is set at odds of 3/1 by Unibet.

Recent Head to head

Players to watch
