Charlton vs Wycombe
England – League One
Date: Saturday, 8 September 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: The Valley, London.
The Addicks picked up an important 1-2 victory away at Southend United seven days ago. It was a very nervous affair decided by the late 87th-minute goal from Polish defensive midfielder Krystian Bielik.
The victory at Roots Hall Stadium will certainly raise the spirits in Charlton’s dressing room after somewhat of a shaky start to the new season.
Can Lee Bowyer’s men capitalize on such victory and see off recently-promoted Wycombe Wanderers in the Matchday No 7 at The Valley?
The visitors were clearly impressed by the higher division football at the very start to the season. They lost two and drew one of opening three games netting just once in the process.
However, team’s confidence grew as time passed as they’ve taken five points in three games ever since such a dreadful start.
Gareth Ainsworth’s troops managed their maiden League One victory two weeks ago when they stunned the likes of Bradford City 1-2 on the road.
Charlton vs Wycombe: Head-to-head
- This will be the first H2H encounter in six years between these two sides.
- Charlton were much more successful in the past, winning four of five meetings with the Blues.
- Each of last four H2H games saw goals at both ends and Charlton’s wins.
Charlton vs Wycombe: Prediction
The Addicks had a pretty rough schedule in home matches so far in the season as they played the top-half likes of Peterborough United and Fleetwood Town in last two ties at The Valley.
They did not score a goal in these games, but only conceded one along the way, meaning the league newcomers could struggle to create past the stern defensive line of Charlton’s here.
The hosts will be encouraged with the 1-2 victory at Roots Hall and we just have to recognize the value in backing them to win the match at the odds of 2.10 here. The alternative bet will be Charlton to keep a clean sheet at 2.62.
