Our prediction for this Championship match:
Griffin Park will host Tuesday’s London derby between Brentford and Charlton Athletic. The Bees extended their winning run to five games at the weekend, with the team rolling over Wigan 3-0 at home. Brentford are determined to secure automatic promotion, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against Charlton. The Red Robins, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Millwall.
Charlton are only two points clear of the relegation zone ahead of the local derby, but given Brentford’s form after the coronavirus break, we believe that home win should be considered. In the first half of the season the Red Robins defeated the Bees, meaning that the hosts are hungry to get their revenge on the visitors. Brentford midfielder Shandon Baptiste, who picked up a knock against Wigan, is unlikely to feature against Charlton.
