The Den is the venue for a crucial early-season three-pointer as Millwall take on QPR on Boxing Day. The Lions won the last meeting between the two sides, but this exact fixture last year ended in a 2-0 away win.
Millwall have been poor this season, and they’re now seven games without a win in the league. The Lions are currently 20th in the Championship, having won just five of their 23 matches. However, this is mainly due to their poor showing in attack, which has seen them score 1.04 goals per game on average.
That said, Millwall are quite a difficult side to breach, and that was on display this weekend when they drew 0-0 away to Stoke. The visitors were battered, registered two shots all game, yet still walked away with a point.
The Hoops have struggled massively this season, winning just five of their 23 matches and collecting 20 points. This places QPR in 20th, but they have shown improvement over the last month. However, they’re the second-lowest scorers in the division, scoring just 0.87 per game on average.
Although they concede 1.43 goals per game on average, they seem to have tightened up slightly at the back. This week’s 1-0 defeat at home to Southampton showed that.
Millwall have the worst home form in the league, winning two of their 11 matches. Yet, QPR have only won 25% of their away games this season.
The final prediction is Millwall 1-1 QPR.
