Kick-Off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Merck-Stadion am Bollenfalltor (Darmstadt).

Two teams with the contrasting form will face each other this Tuesday, as the Kiezkicker travels to meet Darmstadt. This game may alter what we know from h2h stats.

St Pauli is third in the table at present. This is a major upgrade considering that they finished 12th last season. The Manager Markus Kauczinski has brought the winning spirit into this squad who have won 10 of their 18 matches so far. With just 3 points between them and the toppers Hamburger, a win would possibly get them close to that automatic promotion place.

Including an active 3 match winning streak, they are unbeaten in the last 7 matches in the league across all venues. In 6 of those 7 matches both the sides scored and the final score in 3 of those matches were 1-1. Away also they are on a6 match unbeaten run and both sides scored in the last away 3 matches also.

The hosts have been just the opposite in their recent games. They have not won in any of their 6 previous matches in the league. Over 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of those games and both teams scored in the last 3 matches as well. Only 2 wins were obtained in the last 8 matches at home for the Lillies.

This match has all the traits to be a one-sided affair based on the form of the hosts. The visitors will have clear advantage apart from the h2h stats so far.
