Erzgebirge Aue vs Greuther Furth Prediction
Erzgebirge Aue turned things around from their dismal two-match losing streak last week by pulling off a 1-0 win over Regensburg on the road. The hosts, nevertheless, have picked up a win just twice in their last five matchups, and are currently placed sixth on the ladder, with twenty-six points to their name.
On the other hand, the visitors recently completed back to back wins for the first time this season. Their last clash on the road saw them take down Karlsruher with a whopping 5-1 scorecard, prior to which they got the better of Bochum with a 3-1 scoreline.
However, in all honesty, the guests have been erratic in their outings so far. They have just two wins from their last nine away games and have garnered no more than nine points from a possible twenty-seven.
In sharp contrast, Erzgebirge Aue have built an absolute fortress on home soil this term. The home side are the only team in the cluster, apart from Bochum, that are yet to admit defeat at home.
Dropping points just twice so far here, the hosts are sporting a stellar two-match winning streak at the moment, as well. To pile on even more misery for the traveling faithful, the guests have not secured the bragging rights in any of their last five visits here.
As such, Greuther Furth have little or no chance of coming away with the win in this one. Be that as it may, the hosts have settled for no more than a point, twice already at home.
Taking into account that more than half of their last ten meetings with each other here have also ended in a draw, the safest choice would be backing a double chance.
Furthermore, goals have not been hard to come by at this venue this season. Seventeen of the twenty-six goals for the hosts so far have come from their clashes on home soil.
With Greuther Furth finding the back of the net five times from their previous outing alone, count on both teams to be keen on racking up the goals tally this weekend.
