Germany 2. Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 21st April 2017
Kick off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Esprit Arena (Dusseldorf).
St. Pauli escaped the relegation zone with back-to-back victories over Nurnberg and Wurzburger Kickers in last two rounds.
Can the visitors make it three in a row and remove all doubts about saving the 2. Bundesliga status against Fortuna Dusseldorf?
The hosts would well get involved in the relegation scrap in case of a potential failure against St. Pauli on the home court.
Friedhelm Funkel and his men will be desperate to end the negative streak of four consecutive matches without a victory, but it will be a very tough task against the in-form St. Pauli.
Ewald Lienen never gave up on the ambitions of saving St. Pauli in the second tier of German football, even though the team has been in a very difficult situation not that long time ago.
The team has been fantastic at the back lately since they did not concede a single goal in last three league fixtures.
