Dynamo Dresden vs Aue by Gustav
Dynamo Dresden is having quite decent start so far in the season, as the team opened the new chapter with two draws, but have improved later on and collected two victories, being now only two points bellow second placed Wurzburger Kickers.
They promoted last season with ease from third German league and no doubt that another promotion isn't realistic for them, however the team will be fighting hard and I don't expect them to slip down the table that easily. In the most recent game, they took important and surprising 2:0 victory away to Hannover last weekend thanks to goals from Stefaniak and Ballas, as the team looked very concrete on counter attacks and looked mature in comparison to a strong side.
Home side manager Uwe Neuhaus continues to miss central defender Giuliano Modica (1/0) and left full back Niklas Langraf (0/0). Sidelined with injury is also left winger Marcel Hilssner, who didn't perform so far in the season anyway.
Aue, on the other side, can not be very satisfied with their early start in 2. Bundesliga, as the team has one victory and three defeats, being only a point away from rock bottom placed Kaiserslautern. In the most recent game, they lost at home against Braunschweig 0:2, showing that they are far away from a good form.
They actually did create during the match and had more of the ball possession, however visiting side simply did what was needed and even though they looked passive for the most of the game, they had the desired score from tenth minute with a goal from Kumbela, sealing the victory in last minutes again via the same player. Away from home they lost both matches, to Heidenheim and Gr Furth and no doubt that the team will be again very hard task.
Visiting coach Pavel Dotchev won't be able to count at right full back Calogero Rizzuto (4/0), but also left winger Soren Bertram (no performance so far) and forward Max Wegner who also didn't perform so far.
Dynamo Dresden looks to serious at this moment in comparison to Aue. Even when Aue creates and have ball possession, they look too weak in the defense and it's something players of Dresden are more than capable of exploiting. I see plenty of value with the home victory.
