St Pauli vs Nurnberg
German 2nd Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 17 May 2020
Kick-Off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Millerntor-Stadion (Hamburg).

Just one point separates these two, but the hosts are 11th and the visitors are 14th in the table. The league is tightly packed so every result matter in the long run.

The hosts are on a four-match unbeaten run which includes 2 wins. They are currently fresh from an away draw against Sandhausen which ended with a score of 2-2.

Nurnberg, on the other hand, has been losing games frequently. They have 2 wins and same number of losses in their last 5 league fixtures. Being one of the weaker defensive sides they hope the opposition attack will be a bit rusty after the break.

St Pauli vs Nurnberg: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • St Pauli remains unbeaten in the last 5 matches against this opposition.
  • The last 2 head to head games ended as draws.
  • In the last 6 matches between them the core was less than 2.5 goals.
  • The last time Nurnberg won this fixture was back in 2016.
  • The hosts have 2 wins and a loss in the last 5 meetings at this ground.
  • Fewer than 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of those 5 matches.

St Pauli vs Nurnberg: Prediction

The visitors are on a 3-match unbeaten run away from home. They have played against some top teams and have managed to draw games against Furth and Heidenheim as well.

I think they will get chances throughout the match and convert some of them as well. St Pauli is also scoring pretty well this season and both teams are expected to get their names in the scoresheet on Sunday.

The hosts are doing well in front of their home crowd with 3 wins in recent weeks. They are currently unbeaten here in 5 consecutive games.

It will be hard for any opposition to break them down in the present form and a double chance for the hosts winning or a draw seems highly likely here.
