Erzgebirge Aue vs Duisburg Prediction
Aue was unbeaten in seven of their last nine overall games, and in 17 of their last 22 home ties. The team also managed to win the reverse fixture of this tie, for which they were on the road. On the other hand, Duisburg was winless in 12 of their last 15 games and is currently on a losing streak of three matches. They were also winless in 16 of their last 22 away ties.
Considering the home advantage as well along with the existing trends, the top pick would be a win for Aue.
While Duisburg has conceded the most number of goals of all the teams in the competition, their opposite number has had their backline broken in nine of their last eleven home-ties. Also, consider the fact that the hosts have a zero goal-difference at the Sparkassen-Erzgebirgsstadion. And as the kicker, the desperation that Duisburg is currently going through will force them to come forward and actively look for goals.
It’s gearing up to be a game with goals from either side.
