Millwall vs Fulham predictions and betting tips for Tuesday evening’s Carabao Cup clash. In what should be a fiery London derby, Millwall will be aiming to get more joy out of the cup than they have in the league. Read on for all our predictions and betting tips.

Reason For Millwall vs Fulham Betting Tips

Millwall’s winless run in the Championship continued over the weekend with a 2-0 away loss at West Brom. Whilst it was a loss, the team performed resolutely in defence to keep out the most potent attack in the league for most of the game, before conceding twice in eight minutes. They can take heart from the display but it was still another defeat and the side looks devoid of attacking confidence.

Indeed, they have looked toothless in games during this run. They fell 2-0 away to QPR in the match before West Brom with a particularly poor first-half performance, lost 1-0 away to Rotherham, whilst could not score more than once against Swansea, who had a man sent off after five minutes and still won the match. The striking options in Steve Morison, Lee Gregory and new signing Tom Bradshaw have struggled to take chances during these matches and it has to improve if Millwall still want to challenge for the play-offs again.

This is because they have put in good performances during the season, as well as at times during the games they lost. Millwall beat a good Derby side 2-1 at home, a game in which Gregory got a goal. Furthermore, they have drawn against league leaders Leeds and Middlesbrough to show their pedigree in this division. Although they conceded injury-time goals in each of the games to draw, these can be seen as points gained nonetheless.

In addition, they have shown good form in the Carabao Cup. They defeated a spirited Gillingham side on penalties after a goalless draw in the first round, whist came from behind twice in the second round against Plymouth to win the match 3-2. There is potential within this side to be successful but they need to regain their confidence in front of goal.

Fulham have had a mixed start to the Premier League season but have competed well in most matches and look good enough to stay up in the division this year.

The club have gained five points from six matches, with one being accumulated at the weekend, with a 1-1 draw at home to Watford. They needed an Aleksandar Mitrovic equaliser ten minutes from time to rescue the game, however, and looked shaky at the back in the first half, conceding after a minute and a half. Watford repeatedly broke through Fulham’s midfield during the first 45 minutes and could have put the game out of sight had it not been for some wasteful finishing and great goalkeeping from Marcus Bettinelli. Whilst Fulham improved in the second half, their defence is still a cause for concern.

Indeed, Fulham have the second-worst defensive record in the league so far this season, with 13 goals conceded in six matches. They were comprehensively beaten 3-0 away by Man City in one match, whilst also lost to Crystal Palace and Tottenham by more than two goals in games where, although they played well offensively, their defence let them down. New signings Alfie Mawson and Callum Chambers have looked weaker than they did in previous seasons, with Mawson being taken off at half-time during the Watford match.

Even the matches they did get points in, against Burnley and Brighton, Fulham conceded twice in each. Their 4-2 win against Burnley was their best performance of the season so far and was a blitz of attacking football at times, spearheaded by record signings Jean Michael Seri, Andre Schurrle and striker Mitrovic, who has hit the ground running and is pulling Fulham away from danger almost single handedly. In contrast, they let a two-goal lead slip against Brighton to earn a point which could have been two more but their defence was sloppy once more. They need to tighten up at the back or they will be in a relegation battle all season.

In what should be a cagey London derby, both teams will fancy their chances here. Millwall have looked better in the cup this season, particularly in attack, whilst Fulham will have to outscore their opponents, given their current shakiness at the back. Although we think Fulham will win this game, it will not be easy and Millwall will battle right to the end. Therefore, a Fulham to Win & BTTS bet, with a 2-1 correct score-line reflects the close nature of the game but also an improved performance from both teams as they look to step up a gear in the league.

Head to Head

These sides met for the first time in three seasons during the 2017/18 Championship season. Fulham won both matches without conceding a goal on their way to promotion, winning 1-0 at home, before a comprehensive 3-0 victory away.

Millwall Team News

Millwall Team Badge Goalkeeper Jordan Archer appears to still be injured, so Ben Amos will continue to deputise. Byron Webster made his first start since his return to injury on Saturday and could play again here, whilst Jiri Skalak made his full Championship debut in the game as well and may keep on building experience. Lee Gregory and Aiden O'Brien could come in after being dropped at the weekend. Shaun Hutchinson remains injured for the hosts.

Fulham Team News

Fulham Team Badge For this game, the manager may want to refresh his defence after an awful first-half performance against Watford. Alfie Mawson came off for Dennis Odoi and that could remain the case in this match. In addition, goalkeepers Sergio Rico or Fabri could get a run-out in this match, as could striker Aboubakar Kamara, who got two goals in the last round of the cup. Left-back Joe Bryan was out for the last game and this could be the case here, whilst Neeskens Kebano and Tim Ream remain sidelined. Captain Tom Cairney is a doubt.
