FA Cup: CAFC vs WBA

Two representatives of the First Division, West Brom and Charlton Athletic, will face off in the FA Cup third round match. Let's see if the Sparrow has regained joy after a series of recent matches to cut the circuit in 4 matches without winning. Or Charlton will take advantage of the home field to dispel the pressure from the last 2 losses in 2019, the two teams have faced each other in the 2008 FA Cup.

Charlton had four stages of competition in the highest division of England: 1936–1957, 1986–1990, 1998–1999 and 2000–2007 and the most successful was the 1930s, they also had two finalists. FA Cup, lost in 1946 and champion in 1947. Charlton last season was eliminated in the FA Cup right from the second round when losing to Doncaster Rovers with a score of 0-2 despite having home ground. After a dramatic victory at home to Bristol City with a score of 3-2, Charlton slipped with 2 consecutive defeats at the end of 2019 and is still standing on the red light group.

West Brom is a very rich team in the FA Cup with 5 times to be crowned, but the last time was in 1968, besides the other 5 times to reach the final. Last season they stopped in the FA Cup in the fourth round extremely bitter when losing to Brighton in the Premier League with a score of 1-3 in 120 minutes of extra time at home in the rematch. The sparrow had a slump in the end of 2019 when it failed to win all of the last 4 rounds, including 3 draws and a 1-1 draw with a direct competitor, Leeds United at home. and even with a lead, the coach and coach Saven Bilic always lost the top position to the opponent. However, their return door to the Premier League next season is still very bright because they have far away from the group chasing the direct promotion position to 9 points. They are giving themselves the strongest fire in the English First Division with 48 shots.
