Leeds United vs Millwall Preview

  • Tournament – Championship
  • Date – Sunday, March 17, 2024
  • Kick-off Time – 03:00 pm GMT
  • Venue – Elland Road

Leeds United are making great strides this season to return to the Premier League under the management of Daniel Farke. They are second in the Championship standings, only three points behind leaders Leicester City and one point ahead of third-placed Ipswich Town.

They have won 24 of their 37 league matches this season, losing six and drawing seven. They have won six of their last games across competitions, drawing one. The Lily Whites have taken plenty of confidence from their near-perfect run since the start of 2024.

They will then take on Millwall, who are a few positions above the relegation zone in the Championship table. The Millers have won just 11 of their 37 league games this season, losing 16 and drawing 10.

They are 16th in the standings and look certain to finish at the top of the league table. They are without a win in their last six games across competitions, losing three and drawing three. Millwall have been victorious in their most recent fixture against Birmingham.

Leeds United are certainly the heavy favorites coming into this fixture. Their overall form this season has been stellar and so has been their recent form. They are definitely favorites to win their promotion to the Premier League under the management of Daniel Farke.

Meanwhile, Millwall have failed to muster up any sort of a consistent run this season. But since the arrival of Neil Harris in the management hot seat, the Lions have managed to collect seven points from their last three matches.

Predicted Score: Leeds United 3-0 Millwall
