Erzgebirge Aue vs Bochum Prediction & Match Preview

Erzgebirge Aue vs Bochum
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 19 February 2021
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Sparkassen-Erzgebirgsstadion.

Die Unabsteigbaren are one of the best teams in the competition, and are currently placed second in the table. However, they share the same number of points with toppers Hamburger SV, and for the reason have a shot at delivering the title this season.

Moreover, the toppers are currently going through a dismal run, and this gives Thomas Reis’s men further opportunity to climb to the top of the table.

They have also been scoring in plenty in the last several match-days, and they have delivered credible defensive performances in the process as well.

Meanwhile, Veilchen are on a struggling stretch at the moment, and are dropping points at an alarming rate. They are also conceding in plenty, and most importantly, they have a worrying h2h record against this opponent over the years.

As such, expect Bochum to secure a win this weekend at the Sparkassen-Erzgebirgsstadion.

Dirk Schuster’s men were winless in eight of their preceding twelve overall matches, and they had conceded a total of eight goals in the past three games alone.
