St. Pauli vs Heidenheim Prediction & Betting tips
This week, the first of two English weeks takes place in the 2nd Bundesliga. 1. FC Heidenheim will be at the Hamburg Millerntor on matchday 28. The last game day was almost optimal for the FCH and the team of head coach Frank Schmidt came very close to the promotion places.
His boys are likely to have licked blood and will be motivated accordingly by the North Germans. Due to the parallel duel between VfB and HSV, it is certain that the blue-red-whites will jump to a promotion spot with a threesome.
The Kiez kickers, on the other hand, suffered a setback after the successful re-start against the club last Saturday and are still stuck in midfield. But in the course of the season so far, the pirates could rely on their home strength. It is therefore not surprising that the most popular bookmakers in the game St. Pauli against Heidenheim make a positive prognosis for an exit in favor of the home side.
If the game can even be watched in front of the television, the fans can still look forward to an exciting game in which little things will decide about victory and defeat. The kick-off at Hamburg’s Millerntor Stadium will take place on Wednesday at 17:30 p.m.
After the successful start after the compulsory break, the FCSP wanted to finally leave the table cellar last weekend. However, this plan went completely wrong. The Darmstadt lilies sent the northern Germans back home with a bitter 0: 4 pack. Coach Jos Luhukay was eaten accordingly after the game.
The Kiez kickers rank in the current table of the 2nd Bundesliga with a record of eight wins and nine draws from 27 games in eleventh place. The advantage over the relegation place, which is currently occupied by Karlsruher SC, is only five points and is truly not a cushion.
It is now all the more important that the brown-white against FC Heidenheim bring their home strength to bear again. After all, the home side are the fifth best home team in the league and have been unbeaten for six games at the Millerntor.
In particular, the often lacking punch on the offensive was also evident again in the appearance in Darmstadt. With just 34 goals scored, St. Pauli is the fourth-worst offensive in the league. Her top scorer is the Greek Dimitrios Diamantakos, who has netted eight times so far but failed with the lilies from the penalty spot.
With the FCH, one of the strongest defensive teams in the league is visiting Hamburg on Wednesday. Can the brown-whites crack the defense bar of the Württembergers? In the game St. Pauli against Heidenheim, the bookmakers offer odds of 2.55 for a bet on the home side. In the four home games completed this year, the brown-whites scored only once more than one goal.
Even at the first appearance after the Corona break at the Millerntor, the hosts struggled for a long time and benefited from the 40-minute majority against the club from Nuremberg to score the three points.
With a defeat against the Heidenheimer it will be really uncomfortable for Luhukay and his boys and the relegation would be in great danger again! Leo Östigard will be missing due to the fifth yellow card.
There is still something going on, some fans of Heidenheimers will think after the last weekend! The dream of the Bundesliga is taking shape again, as the top teams played for the Württemberg team.
After 27 games, the blue-red-whites recorded twelve wins and eight draws on the plus side. With a total of 44 points, this is currently enough for fourth place in the table. But the gap to the promotion places has shrunk since the resumption of play.
The gap to the Stuttgart team lying on the relegation ground, who started with two defeats, is now only one point and to Hamburg SV only two points. On the penultimate matchday, there could be a real promotion final against HSV.
Last Friday the Heidenheimers showed a significant improvement compared to their first appearance in Bochum.
After some initial difficulties, coach Legend Frank Schmidt, who has been looking after the guests for thirteen years, got better and better under control of Wehen Wiesbaden and ultimately won with 1-0.
The defense in particular was once again excellent and hardly allowed any chances to score. Like most of the season, it was the basis for success. Only 29 goals conceded keeper Kevin Müller in this season. This is the second best value of the 2nd Bundesliga behind leaders Bielefeld.
It is often not so important that the offensive lacks strength. Just like on the last day of the match, one hit is enough to break in the three. The best scorer of the blue-red-whites is Tim Kleindienst, who has scored twelve times.
However, the FCH remained in the last two away games at Darmstadt 98 (0: 2) and Bochum (0: 3) without their own goal, but the excellent table situation should provide an extra boost of motivation.
