Derby County vs Charlton Athletic
Date: Monday, 30 December 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Pride Park (Derby).
Charlton managed to end their four-match winless streak, against this opponent when the two sides met, back in October.
However, with home advantage no longer under their belt, and Derby unbeaten for the past two decades in h2h games here as well, Charlton’s chances of completing a league double are certainly looking bleak.

Derby County vs Charlton Athletic Prediction
Derby were deprived of a win yet again last week after they managed no more than a 1-1 draw against Wigan on the road. The hosts looked certain to finish that latter game empty-handed after their counterparts were still leading at the end of regulation time. However, a goal from Martyn Warhorn in the dying minutes of stoppage time helped his term salvage a point.
Disappointingly, with zero wins from their past seven fixtures on the trot, the home side are just six points shy of falling into the relegation zone.
Meanwhile, Charlton are currently sporting a one-point cushion over Derby on the ladder. The visitors are also unbeaten in their past three matchups, the most recent of which was a 3-2 win over Hull.
Be that as it may, the visiting continent have been at their worst on the road this term. They have not tasted success in any of their last eight outings, and have just two wins to boast of from their past eleven as well.
To make matters worse, Charlton have not secured the bragging rights in any of their previous eight visits here either. Furthermore, Derby have been a confident bunch on home soil and have stumbled just twice at Pride Park so far.
Given the home advantage at hand, Derby should be making no mistake in climbing up the ladder this week. Additionally, despite faring poorly on the road, Charlton have been a constant threat in the final third.
They have failed to find the back of the net just once in their last seven away clashes, and have racked up nine goals in the process too.
It is also worth mentioning that Charlton scored three past this foe in the reverse fixture of this matchup two months ago. Taking into account that the hosts have failed to keep a clean sheet in their past three fixtures here as well, expect Charlton to bag a consolation goal in this one without fail.
