Furth are not known for making strong start to the season, but this is one of their worst. After 9 match weeks, the team managed a win and a draw and lost in 7. They are at the rock bottom of the standings and the clouds of relegation threat had already towered over them.
The achilles in their heels is a poor defense that has conceded at the rate of 2 goals per game this season.

Aue’s start to the season is certainly positive considering they are team that narrowly escaped relegation last term. They are sitting at 9th in the table with 4 wins and a draw from 9 matches, losing 4.
Interestingly, Aue have an excellent record in away games this season. Since starting off with a 2-1 loss at Heidenheim, they are unbeaten in three with a draw at Braunschweig and wins at Ingolstadt and Kaiserslautern.

Greuther Furth vs Erzgebirge Aue: Prediction
The international break came at a good time for the hosts as they get some time to rework on their strategy. To achieve something on Sunday, they must sort out the issues at the back.
But despite having a poor overall record in similar fixtures, Aue come in good spirits this term. They know there is little expected of them here and can play without pressure.
