Venue: Millerntor-Stadion (Hamburg).

Dresden are the worst team in the competition as of now, and they are rightfully at the forefront to get relegated. On the other side, we have St. Pauli with the home advantage, who have recently improved their form at this venue. Likely, the home team Pauli are considered to be the stronger team here.

St. Pauli vs Dynamo Dresden Prediction

Pauli lost on the road the last match-day against Kiel. The scoreline was 2-1, but the guests had missed a penalty in the 90+5th minute. This sense of hurt will really drive them to record a huge win this weekend, against the worst team of the lot.

Elsewhere, Dresden were defeated at home by Darmstadt, with a 2-3 scorecard. The loss continued the struggles of Dynamo, and kind of justified their tag as relegation-battlers. So far, Dresden have secured just 17 points from 21 fixtures, are placed dead-last in the table, and have scored the least number of goals in the competition.

They are also on a ten-match winless run on the road, and had lost seven of their past eight road trips. In fact, this whole season, they have managed a single win away from home, and it had come in the DFB Pokal, against a team from the lower division.

On the other hand, Pauli are unbeaten in their past three home games (of which two were wins, and the third a draw against a top-three team). They were also invincible in eight of their last eleven appearances at home.

Most importantly, Pauli had scored twice or more in 12 of the past 14 overall h2h encounters, and they hold a 100% unbeaten record at home in such games in the last 20 years. They have also scored twice or more in all home h2h fixtures in the period, barring just once. Taking into account these findings, we are inclined to pick out St. Pauli as a strong favorite for the win.
