Championship strugglers and FA Cup giant killers Millwall host Premier League side Brighton in the final FA Cup match of the weekend.
Will Brighton be able to hold off Millwall who are looking to reach the FA Cup final for the first time since 2004?
Millwall have plenty on their plate as they sit one point above the drop zone in the Championship. For all their heroics in the FA Cup – the Championship side have a real possibility of playing League One football next season.
A midweek victory against Birmingham prevented the Lions from dropping into the relegation zone. However, if you remove their FA Cup wins from the equation, Neil Harris’ side have won just twice since the turn of the year.
Brighton secured back-to-back victories for the first time since December with a win over bitter rivals Crystal Palace in the M23 Derby last weekend.
The Seagulls are now in a comfortable position in the Premier League table; five points away from the drop zone with a game in hand.
The hosts can be backed at a very tempting 14/5 to win this tie, while the Premier League side are hugely under-priced at 6/5 to reach the semi-finals.

Lee Gregory is a doubt after a tight calf saw him out of the second half of the midweek win against Birmingham.
Goal scorer on Wednesday, Ben Thompson, is cup-tied while defender Murray Wallace is out through a knee injury and suspension.
Brighton will miss Florin Andone and Pascal Gross through injuries, but defender Leon Balogun is back after a shoulder problem forced him out of the last five matches.
Brighton to win @ 6/5 – BET NOW
Brighton are overpriced in the full-time result market. Their form in 2019 has been poor but two consecutive wins – including a derby victory – should give the Seagulls the momentum to reach the semi-finals.
Millwall don’t need a cup run when they are fighting for their Championship place for next season. In their next four fixtures the Lions face Leeds United, West Brom and Sheffield United with tough matches against Aston Villa, Stoke and Bristol City to come.
Both teams to score - No @ 9/10 – BET NOW
Milwall have scored in their last seven fixtures despite only winning just two of these games. However, they are without Ben Thompson as he is cup-tied and could potentially be without Lee Gregory due to a calf injury.
Brighton to win 2-0 @ 19/2 – BET NOW
Brighton have relative safety from the drop zone after their last two wins and will have more than enough in front of goal to see past the Championship side.
The Den is a notoriously hostile place to play football, but the class and professionalism in the Brighton side should be enough for a comfortable win against a struggling side.
19/2 for a 2-0 win is a strong selection considering the players missing for the hosts.
