Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Charlton Athletic and WBA face each other at the Valley in an all-Championship clash in the FA Cup round 3. The Red Robins have been struggling in the English second tier this season, and, as a result, their Championship status is in great danger. Charlton Athletic, though, produce much better showings at home than on the travels, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of Sunday’s football match.
The Baggies, on the other hand, are on the right track to secure automatic promotion to the Premier League. Slaven Bilic is doing a great job with West Brom, but their current form is anything but terrific. Since the Red Robins are tough to beat at home, we are tempted to put our money on draw. In their last meeting in the Championship the two teams played out a 2-2 draw.
