Magdeburg vs Erzgebirge Aue Predictions and Match Preview

Magdeburg vs Erzgebirge Aue
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Tuesday, 29th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: MDCC-Arena (Magdeburg).

This game between the relegation-placed FCM and Aue is a literally a mismatch, to say the least. One team is making their season better and the other is going from bad to worse.

The hosts are at the bottom of the table fighting to stay at this level. After just 18 matches they lost 9 and has only 1 win in their account. Currently, they are on a 2 match losing streak in the competition. After the start of October, they are winless till now.

Manager Michael Oenning needs a miracle to save his team from such a poor run. His side has conceded 11 goals in their 11 matches. This is not a surprise as they are the worst defensive unit in the competition with 35 goals conceded. The last 2 matches at home were draws against stronger opposition like Bochum and Union Berlin.

The visitors are currently on a 4 match unbeaten run which includes 2 wins. The 3-0 win over Union Berlin will have lifted their confidence, as they dominated the entire match in ball possession and shots on target. More than 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of their last 5 matches across all venues.

A 4 match winless run on the road ended with the win over Furth and that match finished 0-5 in their favor. But only 2 wins were obtained in the last 7 games they played. They have a perfect chance to get a second win in away games as they face FCM.

Magdeburg vs Erzgebirge Aue Head-to-head (h2h)

Magdeburg vs Erzgebirge Aue: Prediction

The visitors have not lost a game against this opposition in any of their previous meetings. But since they are finding it hard to find wins in games away from home, we can expect a draw. Also, the last 2 home games of FCM were draws. So we can bet on a double chance for the game to draw or the visitors to win with 1.72 odds.

There is no doubt about the hosts conceding goals in this game. The 35 goals they conceded is more than enough proof for that argument. Aue is not better themselves in defense as they conceded all but 2 of what they scored all season. In 4 of the last 6 home games of Magdeburg, both the sides scored. So we can bet on that to repeat with 1.87 odds.
