Charlton vs Wigan Prediction & Match Preview

Charlton vs Wigan
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 18 July 2020
Kick-Off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: The Valley (London)

The home team needs to get back to winning ways as soon as possible.  They are so close to the red zone and if the teams in the relegation zone pick up a couple of wins they could well be in League One next season. Currently, they have a scoring issue with just three goals coming in five consecutive games both home and away.

Wigan is unbeaten in their last three league matches on the trot.  The most recent game saw them defeat Hull City who is in the relegation zone. That 8-0 win is the biggest win this season in terms of goals. They also kept a clean sheet in that game which is unlike their defense which has conceded plenty this season.

Charlton vs Wigan: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Both teams have two wins each in their last five meetings in all competitions.
  • Three of those five matches had more than 2.5 goals in total.
  • Wigan Athletic kept a clean sheet in three games during that spell.
  • The hosts have three wins and a loss in five previous head to head games at this ground.
  • The latest two clashes here had more than 2.5 goals in total.

Charlton vs Wigan: Prediction

The hosts are under serious pressure from their fans. If they take the wrong step now they are probably losing their seat for another edition of the Championship. With a five-game winless run going on they are unlikely to win this one. Especially the way in which the Tics won the game against Hull, we can be sure of a one-sided affair this weekend.

In all five competitive home matches that the home side lost, they failed to net at least one goal. They allowed Wigan to keep a clean sheet in the last three meetings across all venues. Also, they have not scored in the two latest home games against mid-table teams like Reading and Millwall. Wigan also failed to score in their last two matches on the road. So I think we will see only one team scoring on Saturday.
