Erzgebirge Aue vs Stuttgart
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 23 August 2019
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Sparkassen-Erzgebirgsstadion (Aue).
Erzgebirge Aue’s two-match winning streak in the league was brought an abrupt halt last week when they were taken down by Bielefeld on the road. The hosts managed not more than a consolation goal in that matchup while their foes were able to find the back of the net thrice from their fourteen attempts at goal.
Stuttgart have no intention of staying in the second division and have got off to a solid start in their respective campaign. The away side are unbeaten in their last three games in a row and picked up a 2-1 win over St. Pauli in their most recent matchup, with the winning goal for the visitors coming in the dying minutes of the game.
The guests were held to a draw in their last outing in the league. However considering that they have been picking up the win for two games in a running, Stuttgart are sizing up as the favorites to come out on top in this one.

Erzgebirge Aue vs Stuttgart Prediction
The newly demoted side are already working towards paving their way back into the first division and are currently boasting a very impressive seven-match unbeaten run across all competitions.
The visitors have not tasted defeat in their last three outings either. Additionally, their only previous meeting with Erzgebirge Aue at this venue saw them pull off an emphatic 4-0 win at the end of the ninety minutes.
Considering that the hosts have also come out on top no more than twice in their last five clashes here as well, Tim Walter’s men are more than likely to keep their streak intact along with all three points in the bag, on Friday.
Out of the six goals that Stuttgart have scored in the new campaign, four have come, post the restart. Since their only two goals on the road as of now have also come in the latter forty-five minutes of the game as well, expect Stuttgart to breach their foes in the second half.
