Erzgebirge Aue vs Greuther Furth Prediction & Match Preview

Erzgebirge Aue vs Greuther Furth
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 25 September 2020
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Sparkassen-Erzgebirgsstadion.

The Violets have taken the top-most spot in the league table with a 3-0 win in their opener, and will try to extend their stay at the top this weekend. Meanwhile, the Cloverleaves drew their game with Osnabruck, and have placed themselves in the mid-table.

Going on, Dirk Schuster’s men have been in great form lately, and they are also at home. On the other hand, their opposite number have been struggling lately, and particularly so on the road for the past 14-month period.

On top of all that, the Violets have a great h2h record against this rival.

Likely, expect Erzgebirge Aue to be the better team on the pitch this weekend.

  • Schuster’s men had won four of the past five clashes.
  • They had scored a total of 12 goals from these four match-ups and scored twice or more in all these encounters.
  • They have been unbeaten at this stadium in the past seven years.
  • The last time these two locked horns at this stadium, the hosts won 3-1.

Erzgebirge Aue vs Greuther Furth: Prediction

Stefan Leitl’s men were winless in 16 of their former 20 overall match-ups, and they have had a total of just five wins away from home in the last 14 months.

On the other hand, their counterparts had won five of their former eight overall fixtures, and had scored three or more goals in two of their preceding three appearances at this stadium.

Most importantly, the Violets have a great h2h record against this foe. In fact, they had won four of the past five such meetings, and have been unbeaten in such games since 2013 at this ground. Moreover, in the last 14 years, the guests have won just one of such matches.

As such, expect Erzgebirge Aue to have the upper hand this Friday, and dominate proceedings from the get-go.
