Our prediction for this League 1 match:
All eyes will be on Weston Homes Stadium when Peterborough United and Charlton Athletic face each other in the League One round 21. The Posh rolled over MK Dons 3-0 in their last league match, with the team keeping their automatic promotion hopes alive. Darren Ferguson’s troops have been impressive at home ground this season, and even though Charlton are breathing down their neck, the hosts are seen as favourites to win the midweek clash.
The capital club recorded a very important 1-0 win over Bristol Rovers, with the team putting an end to their three-game winless run in the English third tier. Charlton, though, are not regarded as good travellers, and seeing that talented midfielder Albie Morgan is banned for the match, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the promotion-chasing hosts this time out.
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.
