Jahn Regensburg vs Erzgebirge
German 2. Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 5 May 2019
Kick-Off 12:30 UK / 13:30 CET
Venue: Continental Arena (Regensburg).
Erzgebirge Aue made a massive step towards securing another 2. Bundesliga campaign by clinching four points from two complicated fixtures in past two rounds.
They held Hamburger SV to a 1-1 draw away from home before beating Bochum 3-2 in front of their fans at Erzgebirgsstadion.
The team led by Daniel Meyer are now six points above relegation play-offs spot and they have all but secured survival at this level with just three matches left to play.
Can Veilchen keep the good form going and stay unbeaten in third consecutive league match on Sunday afternoon when they travel to Regensburg to take on Die Jahnelf at Continental Arena?
The hosts have already given up the battle for promotion and we can say they have nothing but pride to play for in three remaining rounds.
Jahn Regensburg vs Erzgebirge: Head-to-head
Erzgebirge Aue were always unpleasant opposition to Die Jahnelf.
Veilchen won six, drew three and lost two of eleven meetings with Jahn Regensburg.
Six of past seven head to head affairs saw goals scored at both ends.
Aue won three and drew two of past five encounters with Die Jahnelf.
Jahn Regensburg vs Erzgebirge: Prediction
We have reasons to expect an open match packed with goals this time around as well. Jahn Regensburg will come into the match off the back of a 4-3 defeat away at St. Pauli. They were previously unbeaten in four subsequent 2. Bundesliga matches.
Die Jahnelf head into this off the back of two successive home wins against Bochum and Magdeburg.
Both Regensburg and Erzgebirge found goals easy to come by of late. As many as six of last seven of their H2H meetings saw both teams scoring.
This is why we will back the BTTS option as a banker pick at the odds of 1.53 here. You can alternatively take 1.60 odds offered for three or more goals to be seen on Sunday at Continental Arena.
