St. Pauli vs Sandhausen Prediction & Match Preview

St. Pauli vs Sandhausen
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 29 September 2019
Kick-off at 12:30 UK / 13:30 CET
Venue: Millerntor-Stadion (Hamburg).

St. Pauli forced Osnabruck to share the spoils with them on the road the other week, stretching their unbeaten run in the campaign to four games in a row now. Prior to that clash though, the hosts got the better of the in-form Hamburger SV, with two goals to their name and a clean sheet intact.

Sandhausen, on the other hand, have been hit by a sharp decline in form. Despite building a solid record with back to back victories, their last two games in a running have seen them salvage no more than a point. The away side had to settle for a draw along with Bochum in their last home game while their previous outing against Karlsruher saw them at the losing end of a 1-0 scorecard.

The visitors will certainly have to put nothing but their best foot forward this weekend as St Pauli are more than capable of depriving Sandhausen of the win.

St. Pauli vs Sandhausen Head to head (h2h)

  • Three of their past five meetings have ended in a tie.
  • Their last clash here saw St Pauli register a 3-1 win.
  • Neither side have kept a clean sheet in five of their previous seven games.
  • Two of their past ten fixtures have finished as a stalemate.

St. Pauli vs Sandhausen Prediction

The hosts have not disappointed the home crowd in their last two games here and are currently sporting a very impressive two-match winning streak. Their counterparts for the weekend have not been consistent on road, and have had a taste of success just once in their last three outings.

Furthermore, Sandhausen have managed to come out on top just once in their previous seven visits to this venue and have been admitted defeat three times in the process as well. So it goes without saying that St. Pauli have the upper hand in this one.

However, two out of the last three head to head matchups here have seen the scores level at the final whistle. Hence, the safest punt would be a double chance in favor of St Pauli.

Additionally, the away side have found the back of the net in two of their last three outings in the league, while St Pauli have recorded a clean just once in their previous three home clashes.

Taking into account that the past two meetings between the two sides here have also seen goals down each, by all means, expect both teams to get their names on the scoresheet.
