Germany- 2. Bundesliga

These teams are representatives of different parts of the points table. The hosts are among the top 3 while the visitors are at the bottom 5.

Hamburger needs a win to keep the pressure on table toppers, Bielefeld. With just 3 points between them, every single match from here will be important for both sides. Also, Stuttgart is gaining on them in third place with the same number of points. The main strong point of Hamburger this season has been their defense. From 22 games they conceded the same number of goals which is the lowest amount given away by a team this season.

St Pauli is winless in their last 4 league games. Their latest fixture finished as a goalless draw at home against Dresden who is at the bottom of the table. One of their better results came at home when they managed to draw third-placed Stuttgart, with both teams scoring a goal each.

Hamburger SV vs St Pauli: Prediction 

Based on recent form, Hamburg are heavy favourites to win this battle, however, they are too short on odds at just below 1.40 for the liking of punters.

Since the home side have a reputation of scoring goals at will and defending has been solid this season, handicap comes handy. This is a team that won 6 of their last 7 games with 2 or more goal difference and there is a chance to see the same against against St. Pauli, whose defending was all over the place in away games this season.

Three recent matches of Hamburger had over 2.5 goals in total. More than 2.5 goals also came in 3 recent games of the visitors as well.

Since, St Pauli gave away too many goals in the latest away matches, the over market on goals seem like a decent alternative to back at 1.67 odd.
