Norwich 5/4 to beat Millwall in Saturday’s Championship clash

Competition: Championship

Market: Norwich win

Odds: 5/4 @ Bet 365

Sat in pole position to book a return to the Premier League, Norwich will face off against Neil Harris’ Millwall side on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with Harris’ side, slumping to a 2-1 loss away at Hull on Tuesday and holding just a four-point buffer over the drop zone, Millwall are at a stage where every point is crucial. While the Lions might be in desperate need on a win, their form in the second half of the season has left plenty to the imagination. Managing to win just one match since New Year’s Day, Harris will be growing more concerned by his sides form in South London. Saturday’s hosts have failed to win any of their last four matches at the Den and also shipped four against Norwich back in November.

As for the visitors, while Millwall might be in a battle to avoid the drop, Norwich are in their own battle at the other end of the table. Coming off the back of a 3-2 win over playoff contenders Bristol City, Daniel Farke’s side hold a two-point buffer at the top of the table. One man to watch on the weekend will be the Championship’s leading goalscorer, Teemu Puki. Already bagging 23 goals this season, the Finish international has scored eight goals in his last seven matches, including a brace against Millwall back in November.
