Millwall hosts Leicester City in the EFL Cup 1/16 finals. The match will be played on Wednesday, September 22nd at The Den (London)
Millwall is one of the most popular teams in London. However, firstly, its fans have rather specific fame as the main sporting ruffians of Great Britain. Secondly, there were no particular achievements: one participation in the cup final, and that one was lost. The Lions didn’t manage to gain promotion to the Premier League either (and even dropped to League 1), and last season ended with a weak 11th place. The new championship began with four matches without victories, but, curiously, it was the match in the Cup that helped Millwall. Having beaten Cambridge, the Lions managed to score three points in the game against Blackpool, and the next three rounds ended in draws.

Leicester City won the trophy in the previous season thanks to their participation in the cup. Still, now the calendar for Brendan Rogers's charges is overly saturated, although the roster has been expanded due to summer purchases. Obviously, no one will sacrifice the Premier League at all. But it seems that the Foxes want to gain a good result in the Europa League, as it's still a way to stake out a place in the Champions League for next year. Last Thursday, a quite good lineup took the field for the match against Napoli, even if Thielemans, Maddison, and Vardy started from the bench. But the Foxes failed to start with a victory: the Italians won back thanks to the efforts of Viktor Osimhen and gained a 2-2 draw. On September 19, there was a match against Brighton, which ended in a rather unexpected misfire (1-2).
Leicester won both games in the 2013/2014 season, when the teams last played together in the Championship. But after that, there was a cup match in February 2017. And Millwall, who were left with ten men, managed to win thanks to a late goal in London. Leicester started September poorly, gaining only one point in the last three matches. But it makes the coefficients for its victory tempting, so you need to take advantage of this without inventing anything. We are waiting for the victory of the Foxes in the upcoming game.
Prediction for the match: Leicester to win
