Erzgebirge Aue won’t want a repeat of their last result here after a 1-3 Bundesliga 2 defeat in their last game at the hands of St. Pauli.
In that match, Erzgebirge Aue had 37% possession and 10 shots at goal with 6 on target. The only player to score for Erzgebirge Aue was Pascal Testroet (73'). On the other side, FC St. Pauli got 15 shots on goal with 9 on target. Luca-Milan Zander (1', 56') and Rodrigo Zalazar (49') scored for St. Pauli.
It has not been often in recent games that Erzgebirge Aue haven’t conceded. The facts show that Aue have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 10 goals during that time. We will find out if that trend will be sustained in this game.
