Charlton vs Fulham Prediction

Charlton were on the road the last match-day, and had taken an early lead against Preston. Still, they messed things up, and went on to lose the game 2-1.

Fulham meanwhile held on to their early one-goal lead till the very last at home, to post a 1-0 victory over Middlesbrough. 

As things stand this Wednesday, Fulham easily are the favorites. Understand they used to be pitted against some of the best teams in the world last season, as they were part of the prestigious Premier League, while Charlton were two divisions lower in the League One.

There’s a whole world of difference in experience and exposure between the Premier League, and the League One, and that factor definitely will play a role this game week.

Furthermore, Fulham are on a three-match winning run, and had kept clean sheets in their last two. They also were unbeaten in six of their former seven games, and on the road they stood invincible in ten of their last thirteen trips.

On the other hand, Charlton are winless in their previous five games (of which four were losses), and remained winless in 16 of their preceding 17 match-ups. 

At home, they have a single win to show for from the past eight appearances, and conceded two or more goals in five of the former seven.

Moreover, Fulham recorded nine of the previous twelve h2h wins, and scored two or more goals in eight of the last ten such encounters. 

In addition, the last Charlton kept a clean sheet in front of the home crowd was 20 years back, while Fulham kept their nets clean in three of the last six overall h2h clashes.

Finally, it’s been 16 years since Charlton have won against this opponent, and on top of all that, the teams come from two ends of the league table. 

Fulham are placed third, and are a strong contender to make it to the playoffs, while, Charlton are just two spots above the relegation zone.

Considering all these observations, it’s evident that Fulham are much stronger than Charlton, and as such, it’s just logical to back Fulham for a convincing win.
