Erzgebirge Aue vs Schalke: Top Free Betting Tips
Schalke's recent results have put them in a difficult position below the promotion zone but they remain a much stronger team than Erzgebirge Aue. However, Aue succeeded where no other team did in the previous round – they won a point at St. Pauli. Will this improvement continue or was that result merely an unlucky game for the current leaders?
Both Teams To Score – Yes
Erzgebirge Aue have been terrible on all accounts – defense, offense, tactics, etc. Yet, they somehow manage to score in almost all of their home games. That is, the team scored in 7/10 games this season and including against almost all of the strongest away teams like Paderborn and Darmstadt. Schalke have not been at their best lately but we expect them to score a goal as well.
Match Result – Draw
Schalke are the big favorite here but the team has not been impressive on the road these past few months. The last away game they won was in mid-October – since then, only losses and draws. Erzgebirge Aue are far from a good team but they sometimes manage to get a good result at home even against good teams. We expect a thrilling game here that will be decided in the final minutes. There is a good chance that Schalke will take the three points but we like our chances for the draw.
Alternative Corners – Over 8 Corners
Schalke are the best team to pick for corner bets in the 2. Bundesliga. No other team has taken such an incredible number in away games these past few games. See the numbers – an average of 7.40 corners per game on the road in their last five fixtures. That's almost enough to cover the line alone. Yet, we also have a second team to help with that and Erzgebirge Aue have taken an average of 3.80 corners per home game throughout the season. It is not a significant number but they will surely win 3-4 corners to help with this bet, especially with Schalke's current problems.
