St. Pauli vs Holstein Kiel Prediction & Betting tips
The FC St. Pauli is in the second half of the Bundesliga at the moment in the second half of the table, but is the promotion ranks actually one point closer than the relegation places. Holstein Kiel will be visiting Hamburg’s Millerntor on Sunday and if St. Pauli should win this match, then the Kiez kickers could in fact claim for third place again. But that is only because Holstein Kiel, who currently occupy this third place, have not won for an eternity.
St. Pauli :
After 23 matchdays in the 2nd Bundesliga, FC St. Pauli are with eight wins, seven draws and eight defeats and thus at 31 points. The rich with a goal difference of 23:24 at the moment, although only for eleventh place and still have the Kiezkicker the rise is not completely ticked off. Because the gap to Holstein Kiel on the promotion relegation place three is only six points and would shrink with a victory on Sunday on then only three points. Only Sandhausen could jump with a victory in third place with four points ahead of St. Pauli. In any case, St. Pauli would make a big leap forward with three points, so you should not be blinded by the current table situation of the Hamburger.
After a period of weakness with two defeats in a row against Darmstadt and Heidenheim, there was then a goalless draw for St. Pauli against Nuremberg, before the Hamburg could win last weekend in Ingolstadt 1-0. The Schanzer had a clear chance plus, so that the victory was a bit happy, but had St. Pauli in the home game before against league leaders Nuremberg slightly better options and could not use them. Speaking of home games: At home, St. Pauli feels almost uncomfortable despite the fantastic support from the fans, because in eleven home games, there were only two wins in addition to six draws and three defeats. That only makes rank sixteen in the home table. By comparison, away from home, St. Pauli is the fifth-best team with six threes, one draw and five failures, and was also able to win the first leg in Kiel 1-0.
And again no victory! Last weekend, FC Erzgebirge Aue was a guest at the Kiel Holstein Stadium and after 25 minutes it looked as if the storks could once again carry a threesome. With 2: 0 led Holstein Kiel at this time and had the game as far as possible under control. But in the first half, the violets came from Aue within two minutes to equalize and with a 2: 2 it was not only in the cabins, but it should also be the final score at the same time. This left Holstein Kiel in the tenth (!) Second division match in a row without a win. There were eight straight draws and only two defeats in those ten games. Only a few victories from these last ten encounters and Holstein Kiel could have already set the championship champagne cold and can plan for the upcoming season in the Bundesliga.
But so the Kiel slipped with time from first place to three now seven points behind the leaders from Nuremberg and Dusseldorf. Worse still: Holstein Kiel is still on the promotion relegation place three, but the lead on Sandhausen in fourth place is only two points. Even St. Pauli in eleventh place is as mentioned only six points away – and still have eleven game days to complete. Just to compare: Currently Holstein Kiel comes to a record of nine wins, ten draws and four defeats. Eight of these ten draws and two of the four bankruptcies occurred on the last ten matchdays. That means: on the first thirteen matchdays Holstein Kiel took nine wins and two draws and lost only two games. Holstein Kiel still has the fewest defeats of the 2nd Bundesliga (4), but now also the second most of the division of points.
