St. Pauli vs Bochum
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Thursday, 28 January 2021
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Millerntor-Stadion (Hamburg).
Thursday night is going to be an interesting night for the Second division Bundesliga fans. The team at the 15th spot just above the relegation zone will host the team sitting at the second place on the league table as it stands this season.
What is interesting in the matchup is that the host, St. Pauli, has been unbeaten in their last four matches in the campaign along with a double win. Their two-game winning streak shows improved morale, and they will play after defeating Regensburg at home with a 2-0 scoreline in the last league clash.
Bochum continues to stay unbeaten in the league for the fifth game in a row. But they did break their four-game winning streak in the campaign in the last clash. The 1-1 draw on the road against Sandhausen shows a shaky defense and will affect the morale of the players ahead of another visit.
St. Pauli vs Bochum Head-to-head (h2h)
- Three of their recent four matches have ended in a draw.
- Both teams have scored in three of their recent five fixtures.
- The host has recorded four of the last five overall wins.
- The away team has won only thrice in their last 20 clashes.
- Their previous encounter resulted in a 2-2 draw at Bochum.
St. Pauli vs Bochum Prediction
St. Pauli enjoys the ground advantage in the game, and their recent winning streak might prove useful to them in the upcoming clash. However, Bochum will come in hot with a lead of 17 points on the table. The host will still have the squad strength to test the visitors, but not enough for the bragging rights.
Timo Schultz’s men have scored 5 goals in the last two attempts. And they have continued to score at least a goal each in their past five league clashes. In the meantime, the away team has averaged 1.8 goals in the campaign. Hence, the BTTS will probably be an ideal tip from the goals department in the game.
With their overall performance and squad strength, the away win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters in the encounter.
