The champion of England plays a League One side in the F.A. Cup fifth round Saturday. Few are predicting a surprise result as hardly anyone thinks Leicester City will beat Millwall.

So poorly is Leicester playing that it would be something of a shock if it came away from The Den with a win. Millwall has everything Leicester doesn’t — spirit, the fans behind the manager, a settled team and it is in good form, unbeaten in 12 games, having not conceded a goal in over seven hours. Next Wednesday, Leicester travels to Seville for what will almost certainly be a Champions League pummeling.
