Lions lack the bite to extend Villa's turmoil

Millwall v Aston Villa

Millwall have gone off the boil of late, which is a shame because this should be the perfect time to kick a giant when he's down.

Villa are in turmoil after going out of the Capital One Cup and must be vulnerable in this FA Cup fourth-round tie on Friday.

There are plenty of punters who will have this in as their shock of the weekend - if you can call it a shock - but I just think the Lions lack the bite up front to really scare Villa's nervy back line.

Millwall have only scored eight in their last ten, are clearly missing the departed Chris Wood, and Paul Lambert will happily take a replay. The draw's the call.

Key stats
  • Malaga have not kept a clean sheet in 12 matches this season
Expert verdict
Only twice this season have Malaga avoided defeat, although both of those were at home as they wait for their first shutout of a miserable campaign. Deportivo were left heartbroken to lose so late against Atletico Madrid last time out but they have scored in four of their five away matches.
