Millwall take on Aston Villa at the Den looking to capitalise on the uncertainty at the club. Villa come to the match after having just sacked Steve Bruce following the midweek result against Preston. Caretaker manager Kevin MacDonald will be in charge of the team, who are struggling in the 13th position. Millwall, though, are in an even worse position with the team in the bottom three after having managed only seven points so far.

Villa are given odds of 2.60 to win the match. However, a managerial change alone is not enough to back a victory for Villa, who have lost in their previous two visits to the Den. The manner in which Millwall came back from a losing position against Nottingham Forest coupled with the chances that they created from set pieces would make it difficult for any team in the midst of a difficult time. Villa have a lot of uncertainty coming into the match and our preview would pick a win for Millwall.

Correct Score odds
An incredible 11 out of the 19 chances created by Millwall in the draw with Nottingham Forest came from set pieces. Villa were let down by their inability to defend set pieces in the draw with Preston. This match bodes well for Millwall, who have seen Villa concede the second highest number of goals (7) from set pieces this season. Our correct score prediction would go with a Millwall 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Villa have been decent in front of goal and they have scored in six straight matches. The last Championship match in which Villa failed to score was towards the end of last season against Fulham. Millwall’s poor defensive performances will also aid Villa. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Lee Gregory has become Millwall’s top scorer with three goals after his equaliser against Nottingham Forest. The 30-year-old forward has now been able to score in back-to-back matches. Even though he was unable to score in his only appearance against Aston Villa, our first goalscorer prediction would back Lee Gregory due to the threat he possesses from set pieces.
