Millwall v Aston Villa Odds: FA Cup Shock On The Cards At The Den

The FA Cup fourth round gets underway on Friday when Aston villa travel to Millwall for what looks like a tricky contest for the Premier League side. The home side sit in a good ninth place in the Championship going into this one and the Lions will be looking to heap more misery on an Aston Villa side who are bang out of form at the moment. Paul Lambert is under immense pressure at Villa Park following a dismal run of form and a defeat here could be the final nail in the coffin for the former Norwich gaffer.

Despite the fact that Millwall are the Championship team here they are the favourites to win the match against their Premier League opponents. Kenny Jackett has done a cracking job at the New Den over the past year or so and the Lions find themselves within touching distance of the play-off places at this stage of the season. Millwall are clearly not one of the bigger teams in the Championship but they are more than a match for most sides as they have shown over the course of the last few months.

It is worth noting that Millwall do go into this match off of the back of a 2-0 defeat to Burnley last weekend but they will be up for this one in front of a bumper crowd on Friday night. The bookmakers rate the Lions as the slight favourites to win the match with Ladbrokes rating them as 11/8 shots to beat Villa by any score line. Jackett will be looking to Darius Henderson to be a threat for them in front of goal as they continue to come to terms with the departure of top goal scorer Chris Wood to Leicester recently.

As for Aston Villa, they are coming off of a League Cup Semi-Final defeat to Bradford city on Tuesday night which is sure to have hit them hard. We should mention that Villa did win the match 2-1 on Tuesday night but ultimately they failed to overturn a two goal deficit from the first leg to allow the League Two team to through to a Wembley final. That coupled with their dismal League form ensures Aston Villa go into this match under intense pressure to perform with relegation looking like a real possibility.

It remains to be seen whether or not a good FA Cup run is what Aston Villa need at the moment but punters wanting to back them to win the match can get 15/8 with Ladbrokes.com. Paul Lambert will be hoping the few senior players he has in the squad step up to the plate on Friday night with Christian Benteke the man most likely for the away side. Villa will always concede goals as they showed in conceding four to Bradford over two games and that will give Millwall plenty of encouragement here.

We can see this one being a reasonably tight affair but given the form that Villa are in we really do Millwall claiming the win on Friday night. On paper it looks like an upset but the truth is that the Lions are the favourites here and a 2-1 victory for Millwall at 15/2 could well prove to be a great punt. The aforementioned Darius Henderson will be the key for the home side and if he can give Millwall the lead the New Den crown will no doubt smell the blood of a Premier League scalp.

Match Tips

Tip 1 - Darius Henderson to score first @ 11/2 with Ladbrokes
Tip 2 - Millwall to win the match 2-1 @15/2 with Ladbrokes
Tip 3 - The match to produce over 2.5 goals @ 5/6 with Ladbrokes
