Draw or Charlton to Win

Three of the last five duels between these two teams have ended with a win for the home team, while the fifth game was a draw. With that in mind, and given that both teams are in similar forms while Charlton should be a better team on paper, our prediction is for Charlton to win the game or for the match to end in a draw.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

The home team has started the season with a lot of goals – they’ve averaged almost five goals per game in their first three matches in all competitions. On the other hand, we’ve only seen three goals in the first two league matches for Charlton, but three of the previous five head-to-head duels between MK Dons and Charlton have gone over 2.5 total goals, so we expect the same thing to happen here.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both teams have scored in five of the six matches played by these two teams since the start of the season, including their games in the League Cup. Things are even better for our prediction if we only look at their League One matches since both teams scored in all four games played by Bolton and Lincoln so far. To top it off, their last h2h meeting also ended with both teams scoring.

MK Dons vs Charlton preview: Can one of these teams get their first win of the season?

After both teams have failed to get a win in the first two rounds of League One, this match could prove to be very important for them. So, let’s take a closer look at the teams.

MK Dons

After finishing last season in the cushy spot in the middle of the table, MK Dons was hoping for a good start of the season that might raise their ambitions further. However, that didn’t happen since the team started the season with a loss and a draw in League One. Furthermore, Milton Keynes was also eliminated from the League Cup after they were demolished by Bournemouth 5-0.

Charlton

The former Premier League team was close to reach the playoffs last season, but they were left out of it because they had a worse goal difference than Oxford. Understandably, Charlton’s fans are probably hoping for a step forward this season and a return to Championship, but the team didn’t have the best start of the season since they lost to Oxford and drew with Sheffield Wednesday. In addition to this, Charlton was also eliminated from the EFL Cup after they lost to AFC Wimbledon.
