Eintracht Braunschweig vs Erzgebirge Aue
2.Bundesliga – Season 2017/18
Date: Friday, 18th August 2017
Kick off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Eintracht Braunschweig will have a nice opportunity to back up the fine start to the new campaign in 2. Bundesliga as they host the struggling Erzgebirge Aue side in the third round of the competition this Friday at Eintracht-Stadion.
The Lions took four points from opening two fixtures with the likes of Fortuna Dusseldorf and Heidenheim.
Torsten Lieberknecht’s me have thus announced a strong for the promotion in this term as they could not jump over Wolfsburg in the playoffs in the last season.
The key man from the last campaign, Christopher Nyman, opened the new season with a goal and he will clearly be a massive threat to Aue’s goal on Friday.
Aue will likely have another struggling campaign in the relegation scrap as they are yet to collect their first points after initial losses to Fortuna Dusseldorf and Heidenheim.
The team led by Robin Bank scored no more than a single goal in last three matches in all competitions which includes a 2-0 defeat to Wehen Wiesbaden in the weekend’s DFB Pokal clash.
Eintracht Braunschweig vs Erzgebirge Aue: Head to head
Erzgebirge Aue left Eintracht-Stadion victorious only once in ten previous attempts and they lost three of their last four meetings with the Lions.
Interestingly, eight of nine previous H2H encounters between the two sides saw both teams on target which gives value to the 10/11 odds offered by the bookies on the BTTS pick in this one.
