Greuther Furth vs St. Pauli
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 19th May 2019
Kick-off at 14.30 UK/ 15.30 CET
Venue: Sportpark Ronhof Thomas Sommer (Fürth).
Despite the gap in league standings, both teams are going through a terrible spell at the moment. Fuerth should consider themselves lucky that they managed to crawl into the safe zone by a whisker. While there’s just one team below them before the cut-off line, with four buffer-points, this last match-day won’t push them into doom.
The home advantage will come into play this Sunday, especially since it’s the season ender. Fuerth will find fuel from the cheering supporters, happy due to their team’s avoidance of relegation. Moreover, Pauli has been finding life tough on the road for the last several weeks.

Greuther Furth vs St. Pauli Predictions
Fuerth was unbeaten in 12 of their last 15 home ties. It’s true they have had struggles generally, but at home, the team is clearly better. On the other hand, Pauli lost their last four road trips in a row, and six of the last seven as well. Moreover, they were winless in eight of their last ten overall ties too.
Going on, the last three h2h matches had home wins, and it’s been three years since an away team recorded an h2h victory. Also, do note that, at this venue, eight of the last twelve wins went to the hosts against Pauli. As such, expect the home team to avoid a loss, especially since it’s the last match-day.
But do keep in mind that Pauli finished much higher in the table. They also scored two or more goals in five of the last seven h2h ties and netted goals in 17 of their last 20 matches on the road this season. In the meantime, Fuerth failed to keep a clean sheet in their last six match-ups.
Logically speaking, both teams should find the back of the net this week.
