BRAUNSCHWEIG v AUE
Friday 17th February 2017 – Kickoff: 1830hrs
Football – Germany – Bundesliga 2 Betting Tips
Although Eintracht Braunschweig head into their Friday night German Bundesliga 2 match with Erzgebirge Aue on the back of four matches without a win, tonight’s hosts still sit in third spot in the German second tier, and all three points this evening would lift them up into second place.
Recent stalemates against Karlsruher, Wurzburger Kickers and Nurnberg along with defeat to St Pauli have pegged back Braunschweig’s march for automatic promotion, but a win tonight would see them back in contention.
The hosts possess a strong home record of 8-1-1 22/11 which includes recent wins gained over Greuther Furth, 1860 Munich and Arminia Bielefeld, and in strikers Kumbela (11 goals) and Nyman (6 goals), they have the firepower to make in-roads tonight.
Visitors Erzgebirge Aue currently sit bottom of the Bundesliga 2 having registered just four league wins all season to date – 2 at home, and 2 away from home. Aue have suffered just one defeat from their last five league matches overall, but on the flip side they’ve gained just one win too while also being involved in three draws in recent weeks.
Stalemates with Kaiserslautern, Fortuna Dusseldorf and Greuther Furth mean they are likely to view a point on their travels at high-flying Braunschweig a good result, but they’re without a win from their last five away matches.
An away record of 2-2-6 10/18 suggests that they’ll be fortunate to come away from this encounter with even a point to their name, in addition to keeping just two clean sheets on their travels all season.
I’ll therefore back the home side to take the points here.
