St. Pauli vs VfB Stuttgart Prediction

St. Pauli lost 0-3 the last match-day on the road against Furth. The former are just a single point above the relegation line as of now, and this huge loss has now brought back memories of their dismal run before the Christmas break.

Stuttgart meanwhile registered a dominating 3-0 victory at home over Heidenheim. The win reiterated their commitment to finish in the top-two, and attain direct promotion at the end of the season.

They are also unbeaten in their last seven overall fixtures in a row, five of which are wins, and have lost a total of just three games this whole season on the road. Currently they are placed in the second spot in the table. 

On the other hand, St. Pauli are battling relegation, and were winless in nine of their last eleven fixtures (of which seven were losses). Most importantly, since 2000, Pauli have lost every single clash against this opponent, have conceded twice or more in all such meetings but once.

Suffice it to say, VfB Stuttgart are easily the overwhelming favorites to emerge victorious this Saturday.
