Erzgebirge Aue hosts Stuttgart in round 4 of German Bundesliga 2. The match will be played on Friday, August 23rd at Sparkassen-Erzgebirgsstadion (Aue)
The Violets, which took only 14th place in the last tournament, began the championship with two convincing victories. In general, Erzgebirge loves to play in attack. Sometimes it even causes damage to the result, but the habit of acting from a swoop can no longer be eradicated. 2: 0 in the away match against Greuther Furth and 3:2 in the home field against Wehen - the first two rounds of the Violets ended in such a way. The positive spread even to the cup match, which also was won by Erzgebirge. The team destroyed the northeastern regionalist, Nordhausen - 1: 4. But Aue had to pay for its exorbitant greed with a defeat to Arminia in the final round - 3:1. Truth be told, the match was played away, and it is not yet clear what caused the failure - geography or internal mutations in the team.

Having received a demotion in the last season, the Swabians intend to stay in Bundesliga 2 exactly as much as it takes to return to the elite. Stuttgart showed a bright start - two wins in three matches and one draw, and these results set up the fans for a favorable season. Now the club has 7 tournament points, which allow Stuttgart to take second place. Hamburg is the first. It has better extra fixtures. With an equal number of converted attempts, the leader conceded only once, while the Swabians took the ball out of their nets as many as 4 times. A head-to-head match takes us a couple of seasons ago, in the 2016/17 championship. There were two Stuttgart’s victories over Aue with crushing scores - 0:4 and 3:0. It cannot be said that the opponent has grown in football science in a couple of seasons, but it has not become easier either.
The performance of Stuttgart, except for complaints about unreliable defense, looks very good so far. Indeed, to be an elite club is one thing, but to become such one... The team will have to learn it for the entire current season. Superiority in the class, superiority in the head-to-head matches and the latest results of the Swabians speak of the victory of the latter. Truth be told, I have not been fatally lucky with the choice of a winner (and not only) recently. I will play on the activity of Aue and the professionalism of the Swabians and choose the bet Over 2.5 scored.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 goals scored
