Can the visitors make it three in a row and remove all doubts about saving the 2. Bundesliga status against Fortuna Dusseldorf?

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.

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.

Fortuna Dusseldorf vs St. Pauli: Prediction

Dusseldorf are 6/5 to end the negative run and claim the victory, but we certainly believe that the value is with the visiting side.

St. Pauli have been enjoying a much-better shape in the recent period and we would not be surprised to see them snatching an away win at the odds of 11/5.
