Our prediction for this League 1 match:
All eyes will be on Alexandra Stadium when Crewe Alexandra and Charlton Athletic face each other in the opening match of the season. Crewe impressed in the League Two last term, and, as a result, they secured automatic promotion to the English third tier. David Artell’s troops aim to impress on their return to the League One, but beating Charlton Athletic is easier said than done.
The capital club failed to secure the Championship survival last season, but they are seen as one of the main favourites to return to the English second tier. Charlton proved their worth in their Carabao Cup opener against Swindon, and they are surely capable of making life difficult for the newcomers. Given the attacking potential of the two teams, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on both teams to score.
