Charlton vs Bristol Rovers
England–League One
Date: Saturday, 24 November 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: The Valley (London).

In their previous 6 matches, Charlton has 2 wins and defeats each in all competitions. Seven of their matches recently has a score of under 2.5 goals. The most common scoreline in that period is 2-0, which was the result in 3 matches.

The same inconsistent run is visible in their home matches too. From 5 of their home games in all competitions, the Addicks have 2 wins and the same number of losses. Last 4 home games saw under 2.5 goals in total. The Red Robins need to up their game to finish in a respectable position in the table.

Currently, they are 6th, where they finished last season. They have won 8 and lost 5 out of 17 league games. Also, the forwards have done a good job scoring 26 goals, but the defense needs to be careful guarding their own goal.

The Pirates are just above the relegation zone. They have lost 8 matches this season and are just 2 points clear of the relegation. Bristol has failed to make an impact on both scoring and defending. They have scored and conceded 14 goals which are one of the poorest records this season.

The Gas has won their previous league match but has only 2 wins in their last 6 matches across all competitions. Under 2.5 goals came in 9 of their last 10 games. From their last 5 away matches they have only 1 win but lost 3 in return. In 8 of the last 10 games on the road, the score was under 2.5 goals.

Charlton has a better home form than the away form of the visitors. Also, they have scored more goals in home games. So the home team has the advantage over the Pirates.

Charlton vs Bristol Rovers: Prediction

This will probably be a walk in the park for the home side. Bristol is in no shape to surprise the team in top 10. Also, Charlton is in a 2 game win streak in h2h matches. So with a team losing half of their league games this season, we can expect the opponents to win with 1.78 odd.

Last 7 matches on the trot played by the hosts had under 2.5 goals in total. Bristol is not good at both scoring and defending. So we can expect a boring match with not many goals. A bet can be placed on a score of under 2.5 goals with 1.80 odd.
