Arminia Bielefeld vs Erzgebirge Aue
German 2. Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 5 April 2019
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: SchucoArena (Bielefeld).
Arminia Bielefeld will be looking to stay unbeaten in third consecutive 2. Bundesliga affair on Friday evening when they play host to Erzgebirge Aue at SchucoArena. The hosts found goals easy to come by recently as they notched five in last two rounds. Die Blauen saw off mid-table rivals Bochum 3-1 in the previous home fixture, while last weekend saw them play a 2-2 draw away at Greuther Furth.
Uwe Neuhaus’ men played particularly well in their own backyard lately. They won three of last four home outings in the league. The clash with out-of-form Erzgebirge Aue will provide them a great opportunity to keep such fine home form going.

Only two of eleven head to head encounters produced three or more goals.
Arminia Bielefeld vs Erzgebirge Aue: Prediction
The visitors had roller-coaster campaign full of ups and downs throughout the season. They will head into this low on confidence after conceding eight goals in back-to-back defeats to Holstein Kiel and Dynamo Dresden.
Such poor defensive form of Aue’s will be the music to the ears of Fabian Klos. German forward notched a brace in the aforementioned 2-2 draw away at Greuther Furth last weekend. He is Arminia’s top scorer with 12 goals to his name so far in the season. Klos should have plenty of room to exploit Erzgebirge’s defensive holes and we will back him to score anytime as an alternative betting option.
The main pick has to be Arminia to win at 1.90 odds as they head into this as heavy form favourites.
