Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Charlton Athletic and Blackpool go head to head at the Valley in what is expected to be an interesting League One encounter. The Red Robins aim to build on a thrilling 4-1 win over Exeter and we are positive that they will adopt yet another attack-minded approach against the Seasiders. A man to watch in the home team will be experienced forward Alfie May, who scored a brace in the midweek triumph, while fellow attacker Miles Leaburn is pushing for a start.
The Seasiders, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-1 loss to Derby County and given their shaky defence, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Charlton’s party in London. There are no fresh injury concerns in the visiting team ahead of the trip to the English capital.
Highlighted Team (Charlton):
Charlton Athletic are yet another capital club that will compete in the 2019/2020 Championship season. Founded back in 1905, the Red Robins welcome their opponents at the Valley, the stadium which can hold up to 28,111 spectators. Charlton Athletic wear red shirts and white shorts when playing on home soil, whereas black is the dominant colour of their away kit.
Winning of the 1946/1947 FA Cup trophy is considered the club’s biggest success. The Red Robins defeated Burnley 1-0 in the title game, with Chris Duffy scoring the winner for Jimmy Seed’s charges in extra-time.
Fellow capital clubs Crystal Palace and Millwall are regarded as Charlton’s fiercest rivals, whilst Samuel Bartram, who made 579 appearances for the club is one of the most famous footballers who played for the Valley outfit. The club based in London will compete in the English second tier in the 2019/2020 season following a three-year absence.
