With plenty of other distractions on their minds, Al Hain-Cole expects the Foxes' recent miseries to continue against the FA giant-killers at The Den

Millwall will be hoping to make it a hat-trick of Premier League scalps when they welcome Leicester City to The Den for Saturday's FA Cup fifth round clash.

Having seen off Bournemouth and Watford in the last two rounds, Neil Harris' side are available at 9/5 (2.80) with Betway to pull off their greatest upset yet by overcoming the top flight champions.

Claudio Ranieri's men needed a replay and extra-time to make it past Championship side Derby County in the last round but are 8/5 (2.60) favourites to book their place in the quarter-finals at the first attempt in south east London.

None of the last 11 encounters between these sides have resulted in draws, but you can get odds of 11/5 (3.20) on them triggering a replay with a stalemate in this one.

After all the effort they put in to overcome Derby in the last round, the Foxes may now be cursing their continued involvement in the FA Cup.

As well as representing a distraction from their increasingly worrying fight against Premier League relegation, this fixture takes place just four days prior to the eagerly-anticipated Champions League last-16 tie against Sevilla.


With this in mind, the guests could be forgiven for feeling slightly preoccupied when they visit a ground that has already spelled the end for two Premier League outfits this FA Cup campaign.

In confident sprits as they enjoy a 12-match unbeaten streak, the Lions will certainly back themselves to take full advantage of any lack of focus and pull off yet another giant-killing.

With seven clean sheets to their name in the last eight fixtures, the League One side are more than capable of frustrating a visiting attack that has failed to score in five out of seven fixtures since the turn of the year.

All things considered, those 9/5 (2.80) could offer exceptional value on Millwall pulling off another upset against a distracted and out-of-sorts Leicester team.
