Bitesize Prediction: Leicester vs Millwall – 13/12/23

Competition: Championship

Market: Leicester win

Odds: 2/5 @ 1xBet

Simply looking to widen their buffer at the top of the Championship table, Leicester will welcome Millwall to the King Power on Wednesday night.

Starting with the hosts, making another stunning statement over the weekend as they breezed their way to a 4-0 romp against Plymouth, it is no secret that Leicester are breezing their way to an immediate Premier League return. Continuing to break a string pf records and riding a famous wave of momentum, the Foxes open up the midweek fixtures already holding an eight-point buffer from dropping out of the automatic promotion places. Opening December with a dramatic comeback away at West Brom as they eventually pinched a 2-1 victory, Enzo Maresca’s side will simply be looking to lay down another marker here. Gaining a fearsome reputation for their clinical performances in the final third and already bagging 38 Championship strikes this season, the former Manchester City coach has also seen his high-flying squad enjoy an extended flurry on home soil. In fact, on a run that stems all the way back to September 2nd, it should be noted that Leicester have won six of their last seven contests at the King Power.

As for the visitors, while Millwall might have opened up the 2023/24 campaign with their sights set on mounting another genuine pal-off charge, the Lions have failed to find any kind of momentum this time around. Last seen over the weekend putting in another toothless performance as they slumped to a 1-0 loss at the hands of Cardiff, Joe Edwards’ men have collected just a single point from their previous four Championship appearances. Marking their return from November’s international break with a woeful 3-0 drumming at home against Coventry, the south London outfit will be more than aware that they face another heavyweight challenge here. Firmly looking over their shoulder at a looming relegation scrap and holding just a two-point buffer from falling into the drop zone, Millwall are rightfully tipped as a landslide underdog in midweek. Two sides who find themselves battling it out at opposite ends of the Championship table, we are backing what should be a fairly routine home victory for the runaway leaders.
