What chances do Erzgebirge Aue have at this point of the season? Before the break that started in December, they were the team in the absolute worst form. As it appears from the recent friendly match last week, this has not changed a month later as the team lost 5:0 to Dresden. What chances do they have against the strongest team in the league in this upcoming fixture?
St Pauli vs Erzgebirge Aue: Top Free Betting Tips
St. Pauli finished the first half of the season with two disappointing results but with the new year, we expect to see the team back on track. They remain one of only two teams that have not yet lost a match at home, so the outcome of this fixture seems to be predecided.
Total Goals – Over 2.5
The first match between Pauli and Aue was a surprise. Although it was just the 2nd round of the season, nobody expected that draw. We are unlikely to see the same in this fixture. Almost all of St. Pauli's home games to date ended with more than 2.5 goals. In fact – 7 out 8 home games. It should be noted that the hosts were the team to score most of those goals. On the other side, Aue's recent terrible form suggests that St. Pauli will be able to cover that line by themselves again.
2nd Half Goals – Over 1.5 Goals
Most goals in the German 2. Bundesliga happen in the second halves of the games. In this case, we have the strongest against one of the weakest teams in the league. Even if the visitors manage to keep up with the pace early in the match, we expect that Pauli will be extremely dominant after the break. We should see at least two goals from the hosts in the second half when Erzgebirge Aue will be more tired and will make more mistakes. Nevertheless, it should be mentioned that in the past (from last season backward), the games between these teams had a lot of goals and from both sides. This is an ancient derby and perhaps Aue will manage to add at least one goal to the final count.
Alternative Corners – Over 8 Corners
St. Pauli are among the teams that take the most corners in their matches. Especially when it comes to home games, we often see them take 6, 7, 8, or more. In a match against one of the weakest teams in the league, we know which side will be the most dominant and that there will be a lot of chances created. We expect the hosts to come around the line by themselves but we also expect a few corners from Erzgebirge Aue as well, who have taken an average of 3.61 corners per match throughout the season. St. Pauli, in turn, take an average of 5.67 corners per match but those numbers are even higher when we look at the last 5 league games – 7.60.
