Watford will face Millwall in the EFL Championship on Monday (December 26) at the Vicarage Road Stadium, hoping to extend their undefeated record. Since losing 1-0 to Coventry on November 5, the Hornets have gone unbeaten in their past four league games. Watford, who were relegated from the Premier League last season, are seeking to make an instant return to the top level, currently sitting in fourth position in the rankings with 37 points from 23 games.
Slaven Bilic, who took over for Rob Edwards in September, has improved Watford’s fortunes, winning seven of their 13 league games and losing only four. Watford were in ninth position when the Croatian manager took over, but he has already put the club back in contention for promotion.
Given how the two teams’ seasons have played out, Watford are the better side.
Millwall had recently defeated the Hornets 3-0. They will have the psychological advantage, but Slaven Bilic’s team has drastically improved since then. Their defence has become one of the toughest in the league, which might help Watford win here.
Watford 2-1 Millwall prediction
Watford 2-0, according to us. Millwall
Watford should have a reasonably trouble-free victory based on form and recent history.
