Leeds United vs. Charlton Athletic Match Analysis and Prediction

Following an automatic promotion to the Premier League, Leeds United will be looking to bask in the glory of an impressive season. The last nail in the coffin for the side will be playing host to struggling Charlton Athletic at Elland Road. The match schedules for Wednesday with kickoff at 9:30 pm.

Marco Bielsa is enjoying a successful season at Leeds managing to promote the side to the Premier League. It has been a 16-year wait to rejoin the English top flight. However, the case is different from relegation-threatened Charlton.

It was a sad and emotional moment in 2004 when Leeds United was relegated to the Championship. It has been 16 years filled with tears and sweat. The crowning moment came this season for the side.

How the side won the championship was obscure. Thanks to a 2-1 win over West Brom and a shocking loss to Brentford at the hands of Stoke City. An effortless win against Swansea and Barnsley was all it took.

To cap off the moment, the side celebrated with a 3-1 win over Derby County. The victory came sweet given their previous loss to Derby County in the playoffs last season in the infamous ‘Spygate’ scandal that rocked the championship.
