St. Pauli vs Arminia Bielefeld Prediction
St Pauli picked up what was only their fourth win of the campaign last week after they took down Wehen at home with a thumping 3-1 scorecard. The victory was also their first taste of success since late September, thereby bringing an eight-match winless streak, in all competitions, to a halt.
With no more than eighteen points in the bag, the hosts are currently on the verge of falling into the relegation zone.
On the other hand, Arminia Bielefeld are well on track for a ticket to the first division. The visitors have not featured at the losing end in any of their previous nine games in the 2.Bundesliga, the most recent of which, saw them salvage a point against Heidenheim after the clash ended as a stalemate.
It is also worth mentioning that the guests have been absolutely lethal in their outings so far. They have dropped points just twice in their previous nine trips on the road, and are the only side in the cluster that are yet to admit defeat away from home as well.
In sharp contrast, St Pauli are yet to hit the ground running at Millerntor-Stadion. They have come out on top just once in their past four fixtures here. Hence, given the stellar form that Arminia Bielefeld are on at the moment, it looks like St Pauli are about to bite off more than what they can chew this Saturday.
Be that as it may, the hosts have salvaged a point at the least in three of their last four matchups on home soil. Considering that two of their previous four h2h meetings here have also ended as a tie, the safest punt would have to be a Draw no bet.
Furthermore, Arminia Bielefeld know their way around in the final third, especially on the road. Impressively, they have found the back of the net twenty-three times so far, which is seven more than the second-highest tally.
Moreover, the guests have emerged victoriously in five of their past nine outings by no less than a two-goal margin. As such, count on over 2.5 goals on the scorecards by all means in this one.
