They are the top candidates for the drop into the 3. Liga ahead of the new season in spite of a fine spell of form they’ve shown during the preparations period.

Can Aue backup such displays and avoid a defeat on the opening day of the new 2. Bundesliga campaign when they travel to the capital to tackle Union Berlin at Stadion An der Alten Forsterei?

The hosts come into the season with much higher ambitions given they managed to get hold of their star man Sebastian Polter who is once again expected to be their top scorer.

Union Berlin have the new manager Urs Fischer who chose a tough list of opponents to take on in the pre-season.

It saw Die Eisernen clinch a win, a draw and a loss apiece in three friendlies against Norwich City, Bordeaux and Queens Park Rangers.

Union Berlin vs Erzgebirge Aue: Head-to-head

Union Berlin have a positive record in the history of head to head matches with Erzgebirge Aue.

Die Eisernen won 10, drew 5 and lost 5 of 20 meetings with Viola.

Union Berlin picked up four points from two clashes with Aue in the previous term of 2. Bundesliga.

It is interesting to note that none of last six head to head games saw home teams snatching the spoils.

Union Berlin vs Erzgebirge Aue: Prediction

Daniel Meyer can be thrilled with the job his men did in the pre-season, winning three and drawing one of four friendly matches.

They saw off Schalke 04 in the final check before the official start of the season thanks to a goal from midfielder Robert Herrmann.

Azerbaijani striker Dimitrij Nazarov will be the man to lead the line for Die Eisernen in this season and he is our top suggestion for the anytime goalscorer pick here.

Since the hosts revealed way too many defensive holes in the last weekend’s catastrophic loss to QPR, we’ll skip the home win bet at the 1.80 odds.

Instead, the value is decent with Erzgebirge Aue not to lose at 2.05, as well as with the visitors to score a goal at 1.53.
