Cardiff City vs Charlton Athletic
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 30 June 2020
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Cardiff City Stadium.
The hosts have done excellent in the last few weeks to get into the playoff spot. But they are constantly under pressure from sides in 7th to 10th places in the table.
With a 4 game unbeaten run going on Cardiff will have the upper hand in this upcoming home match. They managed to defeat toppers Leeds in their previous game at this ground.
In the latest of their three game win streak they destroyed Preston 1-3 on the road.
The Red Robins are also on form after the back to back wins in the league. This started with the away win over Hull City and the win against QPR was a bonus for the team from South-East London. This winning run ended a disappointing 3 game losing streak.
Cardiff vs Charlton: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last two meetings between them ended as back to back draws.
- In their 5 previous meetings both sides managed to win one game each.
- Four of those five games saw both teams getting in the score sheet.
- Three games in that spell also had more than 2.5 goals in total.
- Both sides have a win each in the 5 head to head clashes at this ground.
- Fewer than 2.5 goals were scored in three of those matches here.
Cardiff vs Charlton: Prediction
The hosts are on top of their game right now and their win against Leeds will be a warning to upcoming opposition. If they could defeat the toppers at home, Charlton will not be much of a threat.
The visitors have won their latest away game but that win against a struggling Hull was more or less expected.
And since Cardiff is one of the best home sides in the Championship this season, I am backing them to get all three points.
Both sides found the net the majority of their last 5 head to head clashes. The hosts have scored in their 4 recent league games on the trot. This scoring streak is also seen in their 6 home games in all competitions.
On the other hand, Charlton scored in two of their latest league fixtures too. So there is a big possibility to see goals on both ends of the field.
