Hamburger SV vs Erzgebirge Aue
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 22 September 2019
Kick-off at 12:30 UK / 13:30 CET
Venue: Volksparkstadion (Hamburg).
Hamburger stumbled for the first time in the new campaign after St. Pauli got the better of them in their previous trip on road by a 2-0 scoreline. The defeat also brought their four-match winning streak to an abrupt halt, with their last taste of success coming at home in their 3-0 victory over Hannover.
Erzgebirge Aue, on the other hand, managed to end their three-game winless run the other week with a narrow 1-0 against Osnabrueck on home soil. The visitors have three wins to their names so far, albeit only one of which came from an outing.
With home advantage favoring Hamburger on Sunday, Erzgebirge Aue’s chances of taking down the hosts are certainly on the bleaker side.

Hamburger SV vs Erzgebirge Aue Prediction
Dieter Hecking’s men will be optimistic of bouncing back to winning ways this weekend especially as they have returned to the comforts of their home. The hosts have won their last two games in a running here and have done so with a clean sheet intact.
Their counterparts have not been faring well in their respective outings and have just one win to boast of from their last three. Taking into account that Hamburger have an unbeaten record against this foe in their previous meetings as well, Aue have little or no hope whatsoever of even salvaging even a point from this tie.
Furthermore, their last two head to head clashes have seen both teams get their names on the scoresheet. Irrespective of the result, Aue have been consistent in finding the back of the net without fail in each of their outings so far too. So, there is certainly reason to believe that there will be goals down each end at the last blast of the whistle.
