Birmingham vs Charlton: Prediction
Wins are rare for the home team even in their home soil. They have not won a single match at this ground after the stunning victory against Nottingham Forest back in February.
But during this spell, they have managed to draw against big teams like Brentford. With a two-match losing streak going on a win would be highly unlikely for the hosts.
At the same time, the visitors are in a similar problem right now. They have won two of their last 10 matches on the road. Of those one was against Nottingham Forest and the other against Hull City who are in the relegation zone.
There is no advantage whatsoever for either side in head to head matches also. So we can expect a draw this Wednesday.
In the last five games of Birmingham, they gave away 3 or more goals. This happened against even teams who are at the bottom of the table.
Charlton has conceded planet of goals all through this season but has a good attack also. In 23 matches of the hosts and in 21 games of the Red Robins the final score had more than 2.5 goals at the final whistle. So we can expect to see a high scoring tie.
