St. Pauli vs Bochum
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 8 November 2019
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Millerntor-Stadion (Hamburg).
Bochum seems to have slowly started to raise their form, in an attempt to get themselves out of the relegation zone. They have recorded two wins from their prior four attempts in the competition and impressively stood unbeaten in three of the prior four. As expected, it’s something not usually heard of, about a squad battling at the bottom-most of the table.
Henceforth, we can expect a tough fight from Thomas Reis’s men, but their away handicap is something to be careful about. Opponents St. Pauli badly needs a break, and with their home advantage for the day, they could just try to do bounce back.

St. Pauli vs Bochum Prediction
Pauli was held at home to a 2-2 draw the last day by Karlsruher, whereas, rivals for the day Bochum managed to record a 3-1 win against Nurnberg.
This Friday results of previous h2h encounters plus home advantage tips the scales in favor of Kiezkicker. Keep note that they have been unbeaten against this opponent since 2014, and at present, they were unbeaten in 11 of their preceding 15 home ties. Adding on, Bochum has struggled to make an impact on the road this season.
Taking these trends as pointers, anticipate the hosts to whatever they could to avoid the loss.
However, as mentioned earlier, the guests of the day are slowly on the rise, and they will be desperate to keep alive whatever momentum they have acquired.
In that regard, count on the BTTS box to be checked.
