Erzgebirge Aue vs Union Berlin Prediction
Union Berlin, for all their heroics, is a terrible team on the road. It’s right they are third in league standings, but the lion’s share of their points came from home games. They have not yet put forth a worthy performance away from home this season.
Seven of their total eight away games resulted in draws. No other side except for Ingolstadt, the worst side in the league as of now, has scored fewer away goals. Also, the lone game in which Union Berlin got a result other than a draw in an away game was against Ingolstadt.
This match will end up in a draw, as Aue is not a hot team at home either. They maintain a zero goal difference in home-games.
Goals will be very few in this match, as on one side we have a team with the best defensive record in the entire league, Union Berlin, who also struggles to perform well on the road, and on another side, we have Aue, who scrapes through most of their home matches. Expect a dull game without many goals.
