Erzgebirge Aue vs Wehen
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 4 August 2019
Kick off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Sparkassen-Erzgebirgsstadion (Aue).
Erzgebirge Aue had a disappointing campaign last time out and finished in the bottom half of the table, five points shy of being in the relegation zone. The hosts have kick-started their new season on a much more positive note with an impressive 2-0 win over Furth on the road.
The visitors, on the other hand, saw their hard work pay off when they came out on top in the final qualifiers to secure their berth in the second division. However, things went downhill for them in their opening clash, with Karlsruher at home, where they were handed a 2-1 defeat at the end of the ninety minutes.
The trip to Aue this week is unlikely to see a turn in the tables, for Wehen, as the hosts are no easy side to brush past on home soil.

Erzgebirge Aue vs Wehen Prediction
Although the home team finished close to the relegation zone last season, the squad fared a lot better in the clashes at home where they lost on just six instances out of their seventeen fixtures.
Additionally, Erzgebirge Aue have the upper hand here as they have never lost against Wehen at this venue. The team have also scored six goals against this foe and have conceded just half that number so far.
Considering that the hosts are also off to a winning start, the clash on Sunday is more than likely to see Erzgebirge Aue deprive the visitors of all three points.
Two of the last three meetings between the two sides here have seen both teams score. Given that they have also found the back of the net in their opening clashes, the chances of either Erzgebirge Aue or Wehen keeping a clean sheet in this one is certainly out of the question.
