Charlton Athletic vs Millwall
England – Championship
Date: Friday, 3 July 2020
Kick-off at 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET
Venue: The Valley.
The Addicks are trying to get away from the relegation zone, and they have been performing pretty well since the season resumed after the break. As of now, they have a buffer of four points over the cut-off, and will try to increase it in the coming match-days.
The Lions meanwhile have been totally disappointing in their return to active football after three months, and the fact that they are placed comfortably in the mid-table have contributed to their complacency.
As such, expect the in-form Charlton to deliver the better performance this Friday at the Valley.

Charlton vs Millwall: Prediction
Lee Bowyer’s men had recorded a goalless draw on the road the last match-day, against Cardiff. Despite the latter having come from the Premier League, the guests defended well throughout the ninety minutes to secure a valuable point.
In the meantime, the Lions registered a 1-1 draw at home the past game week, against Swansea. The hosts had opened the scoring, and they even led for a long time. However, an own goal late into the fixture messed up their chances for the three points.
As things stand, the Addicks have the upper hand. They have not conceded a single goal since the break, and have a 100% winning record since then, disregarding a single goalless draw against Cardiff. At home, they had won three of the former five appearances, and have lost just two league games here in 2020.
On top of that, they are desperate to avoid the relegation zone. On the other hand, their counterparts are placed safely, due to which they have not much drive to go after wins. Moreover, they are completely winless after the season resumed.
In fact, they were winless in 11 of their previous 13 overall fixtures, and have a total of two wins away from home in the past six months. Taking into account these observations, expect Charlton to avoid a loss at the least this weekend.
However, understand that the Lions have been the better team in h2h clashes for a very long time. In fact, they have been unbeaten in such match-ups since 1996, and they also do have a lead of 10 points in league standings.
Likely, expect both teams to score goals this weekend.
