EFL: Reading vs CAFC

Repeatedly facing strong opponents recently, Charlton is facing a tough battle in the relegation zone. Therefore, just meeting a team of shallow targets like Reading will be a "golden opportunity" for Charlton to escape the pursuit of the red light group. So wait and see, this team has accomplished their goal the same way they beat Reading in the first leg.

Having played hard and even got the score open since the 8th minute of Macauley Bonne. But Charlton still has to surrender to the strength of the third place team in the table, Brentford. Thus, coach Lee Bowyer and his students were helpless to improve their rankings while still standing still at the 21st position on the rank. Having only 46 points and only 1 point more than the red light group, indeed there are many problems causing Charlton to have a headache in the near future. The hosts' form is not going well as the last 5 matches they won 2 wins 1 draw and 2 losses. In particular, both of those losses have come at the most recent time. Thus, it is not difficult to realize the spirit and performance of Charlton has dropped significantly. Luckily for the next match, they only welcomed one Reading who had no motivation to play.

With the Reading team, they are still capable of relegation, but this seems unlikely. Because the visitors now stand at 13th place on the table with 53 points. Remember they had more than 8 points to hold the red light and the season only had 4 rounds left. Saying that, the motivation to fight against the visitors had been exhausted recently. Specifically, the form of the visitors is not good when the last 5 matches they won 1 win 2 draws and 2 losses. In the last round, they were struggling by Huddersfield in the relegation zone with a score of 0-0. In addition, Reading has had only 3 victories in 9 trips away from home in recent years. Given the above developments, the loss is probably the inevitable outcome for Reading after this trip.
