St. Pauli vs Duisburg
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 29th March 2019
Kick-off at 17.30 UK/ 18.30 CET
Venue: Millerntor-Stadion (Hamburg).

St. Pauli has the European spots in sight, and with the last such one just four points above them, the team would surely go after it. They have already ensured their place in the league for next season, and now all that remains are bonus achievements. They have been afforded the perfect setting to go after it as well.

At home, they are taking on Duisburg, a team deep down in the relegation pits of the league table. The side has posted just 21 points on the board, and are surely in contention to get the boot come this summer. Duisburg also holds the distinction of having scored the least number of goals of all the 18 teams in participation.

St. Pauli vs Duisburg Prediction

While Duisburg is at the bottom-most of the table, fighting desperately to avoid relegation, St. Pauli is pursuing entry into Europe. On top of that, the latter has the home advantage. At home, St. Pauli holds a 100% unbeaten record in h2h ties. They were also unbeaten in 18 of their last 25 games, and in 16 of their last 22 at home. Duisburg, on the contrary, was winless in 12 of their last 15 matches, and in 16 of their last 22 on the road. They are currently on a streak of six winless away games.

Importantly, St. Pauli managed nine of the last ten h2h wins and has never lost a game against this team at home. Keeping in line with the trend, expect a home win this Friday.

Going on, the hosts have found the back of the net in 17 of their last 19 home ties, and 11 of them had two or more goals. They have never allowed Duisburg to keep a clean sheet at this venue, and have failed to score two or more goals only once in their h2h history.

Considering competitor Heidenheim has an easier game this weekend against Magdeburg, St. Pauli will go in for the kill. Expect at least two goals by the team.
