What’s Next… Matchday 26

Posted: March 14, 2012 by St. John in Zweite Liga 2011-12

Back to the fourth place, after a victorious but boring game in Millerntor. It is time to get serious and be prepared for the forthcoming matches against Greuther Fürth and Fortuna Düsseldorf away from our home.
Let’s have a look at the story so far, against our new opponent Erzgebirge Aue…


Things look pretty ugly in the head to head statistics against Aue. In the four recent matches we lost two of them and one of them ended with a draw. We only managed to get the three points once.

Back in season 2007/2008, the boys in brown managed to get away with a draw (0-0) in Erzgebirgsstadion on the first match between the two teams.

On the rematch in Millerntor, Aue opened the score with Orahovac in 9’ and Schultz quickly equalized the game in 13’. Both teams kept trying to find their way to the nets for approximately 20 minutes but Curri was the one who gave back the lead to Aue in 35’. Fortunately, Takyi saved the day in the additional time of the first half with an incredible goal. On the second half, everything changed. St. Pauli came in the field determined to win the game. Schnitzler in 55’ and Rothenbach in 72’ gave a reason for celebration to the crowds along with the three points of the victory.

On the first matchday for the DFB Pokal in 08/08/2008, Aue won the match against St. Pauli in penalties (5-4). The normal period ended 0-0 although St. Pauli was fighting with one player less from 63’ when Eger faced the red card.

Back on the current season, St. Pauli came across Aue in Millerntor on matchday 9. When Ebbers opened the score in 20’, everything looked like an easy day for the boys in brown but no such thing happened. On the second half, Aue scored three times with König (60’), Kempe (69’) and Könnecke (84’) and spoiled the party. Saglik managed to decrease the goal deference in the additional time for the final 2-3 score.

This time loosing is not an option. The boys in brown must steal the three points from Aue and bring them back home. We are desperate for these points because hard times are still to come and we will better be prepared.
