After successive draws before the latest international break, Millwall hope to end a three-match winless run this weekend when hosting Cardiff. Gary Rowett’s side have endured an inconsistent start to the campaign, though their Welsh opponents are also struggling too.

With just 13 points from their opening 11 games, last year’s playoff side are closer to the relegation zone than the top-six places. That can all change here, such is the volatility of England’s second-tier, as teams gradually play their way into form after the first few months.

Both need victories to kickstart their gruelling festive schedule, but who will impress here? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Millwall vs Cardiff City Betting Tips

Between now and Boxing Day on December 26, each Championship side has ten matches to play in quick succession.

It’s usually where promotion aspirations are strengthened or significantly weakened, depending on specific teams and their subsequent results. It’s also where mid-table sides and those who struggled early can earn a promising run of momentum. Millwall haven’t done badly this season and lost two of their 11 games, but drawn far too many (5).

Successive goalless draws against Norwich and Sheffield Wednesday before this latest interlude is actually a case in point, rather than an anomaly.

It’s why they need to approach this game aggressively from the off, against a generally slow-starting Cardiff side. Saturday’s visitors have conceded 11 goals so far this term – eight coming in the first-half of matches.

Matt Smith, Jed Wallace and summer signing Mason Bennett all have a point to prove, for different reasons, so watch how the trio fare. Cardiff possess creators like Liverpool loanee duo Sheyi Ojo and Harry Wilson, both dangerous but equally inconsistent players. Will they produce here?

Millwall vs Cardiff City Correct Score Predictions

Cardiff narrowly lead the H2H (W3, D9, L2) but those statistics show it’s often an evenly-matched encounter. Their last five meetings have ended in draws – dating back to April 2015 – and neither are in excellent form. So, I’m predicting BTTS as they have done on three successive occasions, in a big game for both.
