Sheffield United vs Millwall Tips and Prediction
Sheffield United went into the current Championship season anticipating to succeed in gaining a return to the Premier League at the second attempt after Paul Heckingbottom’s hiring early in the previous season led to an improvement at Bramall Lane and the Blades earning a playoff spot.
As a result, they advanced to the semi-final matchup with Nottingham Forest. After ultimately losing on penalties, Heckingbottom’s team underwent a number of changes as the Blades prepared for their second season back in the Championship. The loans of Gibbs-White, Ben Davies, and Conor Hourihane came to an end, while Anel Ahmedhodzic, Ciaran Clark, Tommy Doyle, and Reda Khadra all joined the team at Bramall Lane.
For their first tough test of the new season, they traveled to Watford on Monday. Despite an empty first half, the hosts’ Joao Pedro goal resulted in a narrow loss for the Blades.
In their first game at Bramall Lane in the new league season, Heckingbottom’s club will look to capitalize on home advantage and score three points. They are currently on the hunt for their first win in an effort to rise to the top of England’s second division.
Millwall, who placed ninth last year and missed out on the top eight due to a final-day loss, enters the current campaign hoping to make further progress under Gary R They defeated Saturday’s opponents twice, first winning 2-1 at Bramall Lane in October and then won 1-0 at The Den in February with a goal from Jake Cooper.
The London team began their league campaign at home against Stoke City on Saturday in an effort to up their competitiveness in the battle for a top-six finish this time around, and they came away with all three points as debutant Charlie Cresswell scored both goals in a 2-0 home triumph.
After such a promising beginning, Rowett’s team traveled to Cambridge United on Tuesday for an EFL Cup first-round match, but they were unable to make it two victories in a row as liem O’Neill scored the game’s lone goal to give the hosts a 1-0 lead and eliminate the Lions.
Millwall will now attempt to defeat the Blades once more and win the Championship for a second straight weekend as league play resumes
Despite their injury difficulties, the home squad still has the ability to damage most Championship opponents, thus they will definitely give it their all to secure three points. However, Millwall can still present issues for the Blades.
Rowett should be encouraged by his team’s victory on the opening day of competition, and we predict that the visitors will be challenging to beat and ultimately claim a share of the victory.
