Erzgebirge Aue vs FC Koln
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Wednesday, 27th February 2019
Kick-off at 18.30 UK/ 19.30 CET
Venue: Sparkassen-Erzgebirgsstadion (Aue).
Koln stands a great chance to usurp Hamburger at the top of the table, as the team just cut the point-difference to just two, and they have a match in hand. If things go well in this next tie, we will see a new leader in the 2.Bundesliga.
Chances such as this are rare, and Koln will aim for nothing but a win in this fixture. Things might go their way since they are pitted against a team from the bottom tier, and as is common knowledge, Cologne is one of the best teams on the road. They have conceded the least number of goals away from home and currently misses the top-spot in scored goals by just two in number.
Aue’s last four games involved three against the bottom-most teams in the league table, Duisburg, Ingolstadt, and Magdeburg. But unfortunately, and expectedly, they could manage just one point from these three fixtures.

Erzgebirge Aue vs FC Koln Prediction
There would never be a more apt, or more perfect opportunity for Koln to win. A win in this match-day will take them to the pole position of the table. Hamburger had faced a rare loss against Regensburg, and players will be desperate to take advantage of this unexpected gift.
They will hugely be excited by the fact that their counterparts are just three spots above relegation, and has scored just two home goals more than the last-placed team in the table, Duisburg.
Also, Aue was winless in three of their last four overall games, and in five of their last seven home ties. And giving more reason for the visitors to be hopeful, Aue wasted a golden opportunity to record some easy points against three of the last four bottom-most teams in the 2.Bundesliga from their just-concluded match-days.
In addition, Koln has been unbeaten against this opponent for the last seven years and recorded three wins in the last four meetings. They also managed to record two or more goals in their last four encounters with Aue, and in six of the last seven. Moreover, Koln possesses the most frightening frontline in the entire competition and has recorded the most goals. In fact, only one other team has crossed the 50-goal limit so far, and including Koln, only three teams have crossed the 40-goal limit.
Expect the team to bypass Hamburger and take the top spot, and do it in style as well. There will be at least two goals by the potential leaders, considering Aue conceded three against the visiting Ingolstadt, a relegation battler.
