Stuttgart vs Erzgebirge Aue
Germany 2. Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 8 February 2020
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK
Venue: Mercedes Benz Arena.
After causing a lot of trouble to Bayer Leverkusen in the national cup, Stuttgart are returning to 2. Bundesliga obligations this Saturday. They are appearing in front of the home crowd against Aue, and only victory will allow them to keep up with the leading duo Arminia & Hamburg. Visitors definitely shouldn’t be underestimated. They are sitting in the 6th place for a good reason. Still, bookmakers are heavily favouring the home team with low 1.33 rate.
The Beatles have won only one out of the four divisional games and slipped out of the promotion zone. Games against Darmstadt, Hannover and St Pauli have ended without a winner. All three were BTTS picks too, which indicates not so great confidence in the back. Stuttgart’s only victory in the second part of the season was against Heidenheim 3-0. Most dangerous player is 21-years old Argentine rising star Nicolas Gonzales.
As for their opposition, Aue found themselves so high on the standings because of amazing results at home. They are the only team in the league without one single defeat in front of home fans, including seven victories and three draws.

Stuttgart vs Erzgebirge Aue: Prediction
Aue have completely different strategy and philosophy when playing away. They are heavily focused on defense only. We are backing home team to win the game and to keep a clean sheet.
As for the alternative bet, Gonzales to score at anytime seems like a good bargain.
