Erzgebirge Aue vs FSV Mainz 05 Predictions

  • There have been over 2.5 goals in 15 of Mainz’s last 17 DFB Pokal games.
  • Mainz scored 2+ goals in each of the last four H2H encounters.
  • Aue lost five of their last six DFB Pokal games.

Can Aue pull off a shock?

Third-tier Erzgebirge Aue begin their DFB Pokal campaign with a very tough assignment, a home encounter with top-flight opponents Mainz.  The hosts come into this clash on the back of a poor 2021/22 which ended in relegation, they couldn’t win in their opening game in 3.Liga either, so confidence is not high.

Compounding matters for the hosts is the fact that they lost five of their last six cup encounters, so an early exit is not something that would surprise many Aue fans.

Failing to beat or keep a clean sheet agianst Freiburg’s second team last time out should be indication enough that the quality to beat top-flight opposition simply isn’t there and this could end up being a landslide if Mainz play a full strength side.

Go for goals

While Mainz look like a great pick to win the game, the value simply isn’t there at around 4/9. We can pull a smidge more value from the game by sticking to the overs market, the price isn’t exactly pulling up any trees at 4/7 but backing over 2.5 goals could be the smart play here.

You could combine the two selections for an even better price, but we feel that the price represents a steady profit roller or even in an accumulator. As for the correct score, we’re going for a dominant 3-1 away win.
