Bochum vs Erzgebirge Aue Prediction
Bochum hosted Osnabruck the last match-day, and right away took advantage of the home status with a goal in the second minute. However, the guests were awarded two penalties, and one of those was converted. No more goals were scored in the game though Bochum was given a penalty, which they missed. Thus, the game ended 1-1.
Aue meanwhile put forth a good example of how to make good use of home fixtures. Playing hosts to St. Pauli, the team scored two early goals in the first half, and another in the second, to finish out the fixture 3-1, in their favor.
To deduce the result of this weekend clash, consider that Aue are winless in their last seven games on the road and that they have a single win on the road this whole league season. On the other hand, despite all the struggles of Bochum, they are unbeaten this campaign in front of the home crowd, and their last league defeat at home had come in February.
Moreover, teams that hosted the game have won the last three h2h encounters, and have scored twice or more in all three.
In addition, Bochum scored two or more goals in the previous three such meetings, and have only once failed to find the back of the net at home.
Importantly, at this venue, Aue have won once against this opponent since 2005, and five of the last six overall h2h wins had gone to Bochum as well.
Considering the several factors in favor to Bochum, the top pick for the day is for them to emerge victorious this Saturday.
