Plymouth is unquestionably the “hit” of the year, and it’s likely that even the most pessimistic supporters could not have imagined that their team would be atop the “League One” standings after just 19 rounds of competition. One of the leading possibilities for promotion to the Championship is the well-known “The Pilgrims,” who have 43 points on their account. In the EFL Trophy, where they finished the group stage in first place with all three victories, they also displayed high expectations.
Formerly a consistent participant in the Premier League, Carlton Athletic now plays in League One, the third division of English football. Numerous coaches have made unsuccessful attempts in recent years to bring this club back to its former glory. The Addicks are not performing well this season; they are outside of the danger zone but only six points above the relegation zone, so they do not appear to be a team that could be in the driver’s seat of the race for a higher ranking.
Charlton Athletic will undoubtedly be able to score in this game against Plymouth Argyle, but it probably won’t be enough to prevent a loss.
We anticipate a very close game, with Plymouth Argyle winning 2-1 in the end. In any case, there shouldn’t be much there.
Head to head
Looking at their previous meetings, which date back to 06/04/2019, reveals that Plymouth Argyle has won one and Charlton Athletic has won four, with one game being drawn. Between them, they scored 21 goals in these games, with 4 coming from The Pilgrims and 17 coming from The Addicks. There are 3.5 goals scored on average per game.

This season’s first meeting between these two clubs revealed Charlton to be the more successful team. At “The Valley,” where the first match was held, The Addicks prevailed 5-1 with ease.
Plymouth’s releases have been disappointing ever from the month’s first day. The Pilgrims defeated Exeter 4-1 on October 31, which was their most recent victory. Since then, they have failed to win a competitive match while tying three others (D2, L1).
It should be emphasised that Plymouth has played outstandingly at home this year, winning nine of nine games and outscoring opponents 19-5. Therefore, it is accurate to state that “Home Park” was a stronghold.
Given that they scored 39 goals in just 19 games, The Pilgrims have by far the league’s best offensive. The defence, which has surrendered 22 times this season, needs improvement for this club.
Considering that Charlton has won three of their last four meetings with Plymouth, the men in the green and white will be welcoming a team that has been a difficult opponent for them lately.
The fact that Charlton has scored three or more goals in four of their last seven games is the best indication of their impressive attack, which has helped the team significantly over the past month.
Plymouth will be itching to exact revenge on Charlton following a heartbreaking loss in the first leg, while the visitors from south-east London will be looking to make another big impression. Because both sides play very energetically and aggressively in attack, which is a distinguishing trait of both squads, we anticipate an engaging contest with goals in both nets.
