Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Oxford United and Charlton Athletic go head to head at Kassam Stadium in a highly-anticipated League One game. The Yellows are eyeing their fourth consecutive league win and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Marcus Browne limped off with injury in a 3-1 win over Barnsley, with Ruben Rodrigues likely to step up.
The Red Robins, on the other hand, have been slipping down the standings week by week and given their four-game losing run in the League One, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home team. Even though there are no fresh injury worries in the visiting team, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. In their last encounter in the League One Oxford United defeated Charlton 3-1, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered.
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.
