Millwall are set to play host to Norwich City at the Den on Tuesday for their latest EFL Championship fixture.

Millwall come into this game on the back of a 1-1 draw against Mick McCarthy's Cardiff City yesterday at the Cardiff City Stadium. An own goal from centre-back Aden Flint put Millwall ahead in the first-half, but Wales international Kieffer Moore managed to equalize for Cardiff City in the second-half.

Norwich City, on the other hand, drew 0-0 against Neil Warnock's Middlesbrough yesterday at Carrow Road. The Canaries had no shots on target and had star midfielder Emiliano Buendia sent off in the second-half to add to their misery.


Millwall vs Norwich City Head-to-Head

In 11 head-to-head encounters between the two sides, Norwich City hold the clear advantage. They have won seven games, lost two and drawn two.

The two clubs last faced each other last year in the EFL Championship, with the game ending in a 0-0 draw. Here, Millwall failed to register a shot on target, and despite Norwich City's dominance the likes of Teemu Pukki, Emiliano Buendia and Jordan Hugill failed to find the net.

Millwall vs Norwich City Prediction

Norwich City, on the other hand, are at the top of the league table. Emiliano Buendia has been an important player, and the 24-year old has arguably been the best player in the Championship this season. In his absence, the onus will fall on attackers like Teemu Pukki and Todd Cantwell.

The Canaries should be able to emerge victorious.

Prediction: Millwall 0-2 Norwich City
