Millwall to Win 

The two teams are no strangers to each other, sharing 4 Championship seasons together. It was in 2011/2012 that they last met, in a disastrous season for Portsmouth which would lead to the club dropping further to League Two. Ever since Pompey has been trying to climb back, but unsuccessfully. Now stuck in League One, they seem inferior to Millwall. The hosts have ranked in the top half of the Championship for the second year in a row. Furthermore, their squad is worth roughly 7 times Portsmouth’s players, which is evident for the difference in class. 

BTTS – No 

Despite the data being somewhat outdated, we can say that this match-up isn’t the most eventful. Five out of the 8 head-to-head games have finished with a 1-0 result in either direction. For over 20 years and 8 matches, only once have both sides found the net in the same game. This happened in a 2010 1-1 draw. 

Under 2.5 Goals 

Here is another bet with a fairly high success rate compared to the odds of 4/5. Excluding two 5-0 and 3-0 Portsmouth victories back in 2002 and 2003, there haven’t been any other over 2.5 goal game. This summed up equals 75% of the games between these two resulting in two or fewer goals scored.

Playing their first-ever EFL tie 

The two teams have met before, but only in Championship matches. This will be their first ever EFL Cup game, and it happens so that they meet in the first round. Perhaps, this alongside Reading and Swansea will be the highlighted games of the round.  

The goal in the Carabao Cup for the teams at Millwall and Portsmouth’s level is to get through to Round 3 at least. At this point, all Premier League clubs have also joined the competition and it gets nearly impossible for the EFL sides to advance much further. However, so-called “Giant killings” aren’t unusual and are also why football fans love this tournament.
