Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Sunday’s football game at Erzgebirgsstadion pits together Erzgebirge Aue and Hannover 96, the two mid-table sides. Dirk Schuster’s troops aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to the likes of St. Pauli and Bochum, but they will have to do it without suspended defender Louis Samson. The Violets obviously struggle at the back, but that should come as no surprise as they have little to play for in the season finale.
Die Roten, on the other hand, gave fans some cheer at the weekend, with the team rolling over St. Pauli 4-0 in their last league fixture. Considering that both Aue and Hannover 96 will be with guards down in Sunday’s football match, we believe that punters can find value in betting on over 2.5 goals. It has to be noted that 11 goals in total have been netted in the previous three meetings between the two clubs.
