Charlton vs Swansea
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 2 October 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: The Valley (London).
Charlton turned things around from the dismal two-match losing streak that they were on, by posting a narrow 1-0 win over Leeds in their last clash at home. With five wins from their previous nine games, the home team are currently sixth in the league and are just two points shy of overtaking West Brom at the helm.
On the other hand, Swansea have been at the losing end just once in the Championship this season and sporting a one-point cushion over Charlton in the table at the moment. The guests managed no more than a 1-1 draw in their last matchup at home against Reading while their previous trip on the road saw them play out a stalemate against Bristol City.
With the three points up for grabs, expect nothing short of an exciting ninety minutes when the two teams lock horns this week.
Charlton vs Swansea Head to head (h2h)

- Swansea are yet to get the better of this foe.
Charlton vs Swansea Prediction
The hosts have just two wins to boast of from their last four games on home soil and have already stumbled once in those clashes to go with it as well. Their counterparts, however, are unbeaten so far on the road and have picked up the win twice in their last three outings.
Furthermore, it needs saying that two of those trips on the road were against the top two sides leading the cluster at the moment. Taking into account the admirable away form at hand for Swansea, Charlton’s chances of salvaging even a point are certainly looking bleak.
In addition, the guests have been at their defensive best on the road, and have conceded just once from their last four clashes. Considering that all four home games for Charlton have also been low scoring ones with under 2.5 goals on the scorecards, count on Swansea to wrap things up with no more than a goal or two at the most.
