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.

Lazio v Verona

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Verona have conceded less than two goals in five of their last six matches
Expert verdict
Lazio's European qualification hopes are looking remote after a three-game winless sequence but they can get back to winning ways with a narrow success over rock-bottom Verona. The basement boys are on a five-match unbeaten run (four of them draws) but have not won any of their 11 Serie A away games.
