Charlton vs Nottingham Forest
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 21 August 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: The Valley (London).
Charlton, despite being a new addition to this competition, has started on a high note. They won both their opening two games, and secured a draw in the third. The team seems eager to keep riding the momentum and make a dream entry into the Premier League as well.
They could keep going, considering the squad is at home this Wednesday. But the arrival of Nottingham as guests should not be taken lightly though.
They had finished in the top-tier last campaign – in the ninth spot, to be precise, and since three from that group has gained promotion already, Forest is a top contender to get to the playoffs this season.
Charlton vs Nottingham Forest Head-to-head (h2h)

- The last three fixtures in a row at this venue had goals from both sides.
- It’s been six years since Forest registered a victory.
Charlton vs Nottingham Forest Prediction
The newly-promoted hosts are a perfect example of how the momentum is put into good use. After their inspiring campaign last season, the squad is set to get to even greater heights.
They are unbeaten so far in 2019-20 Championship, and in fact, won their sole home tie. Moreover, against this opponent, they have held their pride in the last several years.
In fact, it’s been six years since Nottingham won against them, and have registered just two wins at this venue in the last two decades.
As such, expect the hosts to avoid a loss at the least this match-day, but considering the stature of Forest, their relative surplus of experience in this league, and their determination to get to the playoffs, complemented with the stat that four of the last six overall h2h fixtures, and the last three at this venue having witnessed goals from both teams, the BTTS bet seems promising.
