The Kiez kickers started with two defeats and a victory in the still young year. A meager balance at first glance, which turns out to be less weak on closer inspection. After all, was among other things a home game against the third-placed Union Berlin on the plan, which was won 3-2, and an away game in the table second from Cologne, although a fierce 1: 4 defeat had to be booked. In the battle for the promotion places FC St. Pauli is still in the race as fifth of the tableau and with the same number of points as the third from Köpenick. For the previous year’s twelfth a placement that can already be regarded as a success.
Football Betting Prediction St. Pauli vs Aue
The guests from the Erzgebirge have much more worries. After slipping past the descent last year thanks to a successful relegation, Aue is back in the table cellar. Two defeats shows the calendar year so far, which came about with Magdeburg and Ingolstadt against direct opponents in the relegation battle and without their own hits. For the more notorious outwardly weak violets, the signs are currently not good. Only the statistics gives hope: The Saxons have not lost against the Millerntor-Elf for eight league games! At St. Pauli vs Aue the tip is still home win.
St. Pauli – Statistics & Current Form
It is already eight years now that St. Pauli spends in the Second Bundesliga. After the club sniffed the climb several times, the last season was sobering with reaching the 12th place. But in the current season, St. Pauli presents itself again significantly stronger. Especially important for coach Markus Kauczinski, who had taken over the team last season, and with the fans very popular Ewald Lienen as predecessor must fill very large footsteps.
Some numbers are intended to clarify briefly the upswing at St. Pauli: Thus, the club has already scored 35 goals with as many goals as at the end of the season. The number of eleven victories also already sets last year’s yield. In the winter break, the squad was also cleverly reinforced again. An example is Alexander Meier in the storm. The 36-year-old Oldie, who kicked off last summer at Eintracht Frankfurt, where he was not less than 13 seasons under contract, has immediately hit. Read on two goals on penultimate match day against Union, where he conquered the hearts of the fans with a successful penalty in injury time. On the last match day, he nets again and at least headed the consolation goal at 1: 4 in Cologne. His commitment was also an answer to the season’s end of Henk Veermann, who had suffered a serious knee injury in the last game of last year at Magdeburg. With six goals, the newcomer from SC Heerenveen from the previous summer is still the best goalgetter of the club.
In addition, with the lending business for the Dutchman Justin Hoogma the defense was strengthened. The 20-year-old comes from the TSG 1899 Hoffenheim from the House of Lords, where he came in the first round only on two missions. For example, his vocations to the U-21 national team in his home country are a sign of his talent. There are also two other additions to the young perspectives, 20-year-old Jakub Bednarczyk (Bayer 04 Leverkusen) and Kevin Lankford (1 FC Heidenheim).
Expected formation of St. Pauli:
Brodersen – Carstens – Avevor – Hoogma – Kalla – Zander – Knoll – Dudziak – Allagui – Meier – Bay Man

Aue – Statistics & Current Form
Although the kickers from the Erzgebirge have remained in twelfth place unchanged for four matchdays, the situation is still becoming more and more threatening. The reason for this assessment is the decreasing distance to the descent. So it is only six points to 16th place or even at the bottom of Duisburg, which has the same point yield. Except for Darmstadt, all clubs behind Aue have made up ground in recent weeks and the reference to a game less brings only a few advantages, since the catch-up game envisages a duel with the goats and thus brings an opponent, the strongest in the second Bundesliga can be counted.
Coach Daniel Meyer has to renounce Steve Breitkreuz again in the match on the Reeperbahn. A painful loss, but by no means the only problem in the defense. Another construction site has resulted in the departure of Nicolai Rapp, who has changed in the winter break to 1 FC Union Berlin. Without the two mentioned players, the already shaky defense at Aue is once again much worse. But at least Philipp Riese can return in the midfield, the last missed due to a card lock.
Before the game with the hamburgers, the away balance also gives little reason to be confident. With seven points from ten appearances Aue is in this ranking in third place. A problem that was evident in the past season, when Aue collected on foreign terrain, only half as many counters as in the native Erzgebirgsstadion.
Expected formation of Aue:
Männel – Kusic – Cacutalua – Kempe – Kalig – Fandrich – Hochscheidt – Giant – Iyoha – Testroet – Kruger
Last Games by Aue:
- 10.02.2019 – Aue Vs. FC Ingolstadt 0: 3 (2nd Bundesliga)
- 29.01.2019 – Magdeburg Vs. Aue 1: 0 (2nd Bundesliga)
- 25.01.2019 – Aue Vs. FSV Union Fürstenwalde 2: 0 (Friendlies)
