Millwall 19/20 to beat Reading in Tuesday’s Championship battle

Competition: Championship

Market: Millwall win

Odds: 19/20 @ 888sport

Desperate to make an immediate return to winning ways on Tuesday night, Millwall will welcome a struggling Reading to the Den when the midweek fixtures open up.

Starting with the hosts, putting in a sluggish display away at Huddersfield over the weekend, there is no doubt that Millwall will be seeking an immediate boost on Tuesday. Hit with a deserved 1-0 loss on their travels, the Lions will be glad to make a return to home soil in midweek as they hope to extend their buffer in the top-half. Although the south London outfit might still be tipped as an outside pick to clinch a play-off spot this season, Gary Rowett’s side have still impressed over the past six weeks. Including back-to-back victories against Stoke and Sheffield United a fortnight ago, Millwall have won four of their last six Championship matchups. Likewise, smelling a real chance to make an immediate return to winning ways on Tuesday, it should be noted that the Blues have lost just a pair of their last seven matchups, a run that stems back to September 22nd.

As for the visitors, while Reading might have enjoyed an eye-catching start to the 2021/22 campaign, Veljko Paunović’s men find themselves in the midst of another sluggish patch. Putting in their own flat display over the weekend and hit with a deserved 2-0 defeat at home against a high-flying Bournemouth, the Royals have found themselves come freefalling down the Championship table. In fact, including a worrying 3-2 defeat against Blackpool last month, Reading have lost each of their last three matchups on the spin. Making the trip to south London on Tuesday night, Paunović should be worried by his side’s recent struggles against Milwall. Suffering a 2-1 loss when the two sides last faced off back in February, the Royals have collected just a single victory from their last five straight meetings against Tuesday’s opponents.
