St. Pauli vs Nurnberg Prediction
In the reverse fixture this season, it was St. Pauli that drew the first blood in the 1-1 draw. Despite sharing the spoils, Nurnberg showed better stats in the clash.
With 23 attempts in ninety minutes, Der Club could hit the target 7 times. They also attacked well, which is clear in the 8 corner kicks before full-time.
On the other hand, Luhukay and his team had only 9 attempts with 2 shots on goal. With 48% ball possession, they had only 2 corner kicks in the clash.
Besides, the relegated side from the top tier shows promise by staying unbeaten in the last three away fixtures in their campaign schedule.
That doesn’t mean the host can be written off in the game. They have a good record at home with just 3 losses in their 13 home matches in the league so far.
Kiezkicker will host after a 2-2 draw on the road with Sandhausen in their previous encounter in the league. Meanwhile, Nurnberg will visit after a 0-3 loss at home against Hannover.
From the stats, it is likely to see the visitors take all three points from the clash. Also, there is a good chance for the match to end in a draw.
Hence, the double chance in favor of the guest will be the best bet in the match. Since they both scored in the last h2h match, a BTTS with 1.80 odds will also be a good option for the punters.
