Charlton Athletic vs Peterborough
England – League One
Date: Tuesday, 21 August 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: The Valley (London).
Peterborough United have started their new League One campaign furiously and we’ve seen them bag nine points in three games, scoring numbers of goals along the way and impressing especially in the attacking third. They now travel to London for their Matchday 4 clash at Charlton Athletic hoping to build on the streak and snatch important points at the Valley.
Posh have beaten Bristol Rovers, Rochdale, and Luton Town along the way despite conceding goals on all of those occasions and although they’ve seen a League Cup exit to Queens Park Rangers, we’ve seen Steve Evans bounce back already and we don’t see them distraught.
Charlton have, on the other hand, bagged three points in their only outing at this ground – as they beat Shrewsbury Town – but have struggled to keep it up on the road. We have seen them suffer losses at Sunderland and MK Dons and only bounced back with a most recent 1-1 draw at Accrington Stanley, which hardly comes as a boost to their confidence either.
Charlton Athletic vs Peterborough: Head-to-head
- Peterborough have bagged three wins and a draw in the last four head-to-head matches.
- We have seen a thriller 2-2 draw in the sides’ last matchup at the Valley.
- We have come to get used to exciting matchups, with nine goals seen in two games between the sides last season.
Charlton Athletic vs Peterborough: Prediction
We will now go for another thriller and we’ll back Peterborough to snatch a point in London once again, backing a Draw at 3.40 and hoping for Charlton to show off as a tough side to beat at this ground.
Peterborough have been just great in the attacking third and with that in mind, it does feel Charlton will have to find the net to hold off the in-form visitors. Going for a YES on Both teams to score thus looks like a generous banker bet at 1.66 at this point and it has seen many big hitters lumping on it already.
