Millwall vs Brighton Betting Preview – 17/03/2019

Millwall vs Brighton

The Den will be home to both Millwall and Brighton this Sunday as the two sides meet in the FA Cup quarter-finals. The Lions have done well to reach the quarter-finals of this competition with them beating Hull City, AFC Wimbledon and Everton in previous rounds. Brighton have also had a fairly tough run with them going up against West Brom, Derby County and Bournemouth. Chris Hughton will be expecting his side to secure the win in this match but will be preparing for a tough game, with The Den a notoriously hard ground to visit. The Seagulls have failed to beat their opponents in the last two meeting between the sides.

Millwall’s season in the Championship has not gone quite to plan with them currently sat down in 19th so Neil Harris will be keen to see his side progress as far as possible in the FA Cup with it being the only remaining trophy they can win. The Lions have had little to cheer about this season with their current efforts placing down in 19th, but they head into this fixture off the back of a 2-0 win. This victory is their first in their last five games, with the other four ending in losses. SkyBet has the hosts to win priced at 13/5 placing them as the underdogs.

The Lions have been defensively poor this season with them conceding a total of 55 goals and over the last five games have conceded in four of them. Despite being defensively poor, Millwall have scored in all of their last five matches. Bet365 has both teams to score in this meeting priced at 19/20. Lee Gregory sits as his sides top goalscorer this season with eleven goals on his record, five more than the next highest scoring player. The forward can be backed with Betway to score anytime at a price of 13/5.

Brighton will be hoping to progress onto the semi-finals with their Premier League campaign falling short of their expectations this season. The South coast side finds themselves down in 15th after a disappointing season to date and with them, just five points clear of the relegation zone have little room for error. Brighton head into this game in some decent form with them winning their last two games on the bounce. Their latest win came against Crystal Palace who they beat 2-1. SkyBet has Brighton to win priced at 11/10.

Chris Hughton will be looking to Glenn Murray this Sunday to provide his sides main attacking threat which the forward has done for the majority of the season. Murray sits as his sides top goalscorer with 13 goals scored and can be backed to score anytime with Betway for a price of 23/20. Four of Brighton’s last five games have seen over 2.5 goals scored and Bet365 has over 2.5 goals priced at 5/4.
