Charlton vs Birmingham Match Preview
Charlton continued their impressive start to the season with a 2-0 victory at Reading (just before the international break) a result that means they remain one of three unbeaten sides (Swansea and West Brom are the others). They were one of the favourites for the drop but sit second though the expected goals data has them in tenth and they have a tough run ahead of them.
At the Valley, the Addicks have played three and taken seven points with victories over Brentford and Stoke and a draw with Forest. Lyle Taylor and Conor Gallagher both have netted two goals from their three appearances in front of their own fans.
Birmingham beat Stoke last time to make it two victories from three and continue a decent start to the season that has seen them win three, draw one and lose two. They sit in ninth but the expected goals data table is not impressed and has them in 21st and does not rate their attack or defence.
Away from St Andrew’s, the Blues have been hammered 3-0 on their last two starts with these defeats coming at Forest and Swansea. In each of their last two on the road the second city outfit have conceded a goal from a defender.
We feel that Charlton will eventually come back down to the middle of the table in the Championship but against a Birmingham outfit who are also hugely over-achieving they should be able to get another three points. The Blues have lost their last two road games 3-0 and do not have the firepower that the Addicks possess. Given the Midlands outfit have blanked on the road in the last two backing a home win to nil also makes sense.
