Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
Saturday’s Carabao Cup game at County Ground pits together Swindon Town and Charlton Athletic, the two teams who will compete in the League One in the upcoming season. Swindon impressed in the League Two last term, with the team finishing the process in top position in the standings, while Charlton failed to secure the Championship survival. The Robins defeated Coventy City in their first warm-up game, meaning that they are brimming with confidence ahead of their EFL Cup opener.
The Addicks, on the other hand, are eyeing a quick return to the English second tier. The club chiefs did well to keep hold of a number of first-team regulars, and seeing that Saturday’s game will be played behind closed doors, we believe that Charlton Athletic are going to share the spoils with Swindon Town. You should bear in mind that over 2.5 goals have been netted in each of their previous six meetings in all competitions.
