Team News: Erzgebirge Aue
Due to a mostly healthy group of players, there is only a single fitness issue for the Erzgebirge Aue boss Timo Rost to be concerned about. Marvin Stefaniak (Torn Muscle Fibre) won’t be playing here.
We’re of the view that 1860 Munich can and should dominate possession and create several successful chances.
In contrast, Erzgebirge Aue are also probably going to find it difficult finding the net themselves although we do see them scoring.
We can therefore see a fairly comfortable 3-1 victory for 1860 Munich come full-time.
