Kaiserslautern vs St. Pauli
Date: Friday, 5th May 2017
Kick off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Kaiserslautern and St. Pauli managed to escape he danger area thanks to a phenomenal form in the last couple of rounds.
The team are thus all levelled at 38 points each being five points clear ahead of the red zone ahead of their head to head matchup three rounds before the end of the season.
The hosts have three wins in last four matches. Norbert Meier and his men took the maximum advantage of the easier schedule to claim the away points at the rock-bottomed Karlsruher SC last Saturday.
Kaiserslautern are generally super tough to break down on the home pitch where they concede no more than two goals in last six matches.
It will be very interesting to see how Kaiser’s rock-solid defense will handle the red-hot attacking line of St. Pauli’s.
The visitors packed three goals in each of the back-to-back wins over Fortuna Dusseldorf and Heidenheim.
The Friday’s success over Heidenheim was the fourth straight win for Ewald Lienen’s side. Aziz Bouhaddouz is the main responsible for the renaissance as he has been just phenomenal in the final third lately. The Moroccan striker notched four goals in last four matches to take his league tally to 14 goals in the season.
Kaiserslautern vs St. Pauli: Head to head
Kaiserslautern have had much greater successes in head to head clashes, but their domination came to an end in May 2015.
Since then, St. Pauli claimed three straight wins, while the match from this term of 2. Bundesliga saw a goalless draw.
Kaiserslautern vs St. Pauli: Prediction
We see the draw as the most likeable of the outcomes because both teams have been enjoying quite a decent shape over the last couple of weeks.
In spite of the rock-solid defense the hosts showed in the recent period at Fritz-Walter-Stadion, we’ll back the BTTS as the alternative bet because the 10711 odds are just too good to be missed.
Kaiserslautern vs St. Pauli: Bet Tips
The first bet is draw at 2/1.
The second betting pick will be BTTS at the odds of 10/11.
