Erzgebirge Aue form and stats

The first 2. Bundesliga game here at Erzgebirgsstadion resulted in a draw. Last season Erzgebirge Aue's home game statistics were 11 victories, 3 draws and 3 defeats from 17 games.

The home supporters saw a 1-1 draw versus Greuther Furth in the 2. Bundesliga last time out and are looking for a win here. In the preceding match a 3-0 victory visiting Würzburger Kickers.
