Match Result – Charlton Athletic to win (90 mins) @ 2/1 with bet365*
For the first time since the play-offs were introduced in 1987, we have a repeat of a previous play-off final. Back in 1998, Charlton beat Sunderland 7-6 on penalties after a pulsating 4-4 draw to win promotion to the Premier League. If this game comes anywhere close to matching that, we are in for a classic!
Sunderland beat Charlton 2-1 in the opening game of the season at the Stadium of Light, with the return at the Valley in January ending in a 1-1 draw.
Sunderland stumbled badly when automatic promotion looked to be there for the taking, so you have to question whether they have the mental strength required.

The play-off semi-final 2nd leg against Doncaster Rovers notwithstanding, the Addicks have been very solid defensively in the last few months, so goals could be at a premium here. On that basis, on the ‘Total Goals Over/Under 2.5’ market, Under could be worth a punt at 3/4 with BoyleSports.
