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.

Juventus v Sampdoria

Home Win Draw Away Win
Expert verdict
Juventus’s six-match winning streak ended with a 1-0 defeat at Milan on Sunday but that could be bad news for midweek visitors Sampdoria. The champions will be determined to get back to winning ways as soon as possible although they have been starting games fairly sluggishly recently and the draw-Juventus double result has copped in four of their last six matches.
