St. Pauli vs Nurnberg Prediction & Betting tips
At the end of the 4th match day in the 2nd Bundesliga, there will be a duel between two former first division teams on Monday evening. St. Pauli meets Nuremberg. According to the odds, no clear favorite can be named, which is probably due, among other things, to the fact that both teams have the same yield after three matches.
With one win, one draw and one bankruptcy each, both Hamburg and Franconia have four points and are therefore in close proximity to one another in the ranking. Both clubs suffered their first loss before the international break. The 1. FCN lost at home to Darmstadt 98 despite two lead with 2: 3; the Kiezkicker drew the short straw in Sandhausen with 0: 1.
What should be considered in any case with regard to the prognosis before the game St. Pauli against Nuremberg is the fact that the guests have now been without a win for six direct duels in league two against the upcoming opponent.
Since we assess the team of coach Robert Klauss much more strongly in the current season than in the previous year and the home advantage of the Hamburgers has to be corrected downwards insofar as a maximum of 1,000 spectators are allowed to stream into the Millerntor on Monday, we stop between St. Pauli and Nuremberg a tip on the away win for an exciting option to get an attractive value.
For the second time this season, FC St. Pauli has to play on Mondays. On the first day of the match, the Hamburg team won a 2-2 draw at VfL Bochum despite a disappointing performance thanks to two last-minute goals. Nevertheless, it has been going on for the entire season that the Kiez kickers get the most out of their sometimes average performances.
In the only home game to date against last year’s relegation participant from Heidenheim, coach Timo Schultz’s team revealed some weaknesses, but again benefited from an insane efficiency, which was ultimately responsible for the flattering 4-2 triumph. Before the international break, luck finally seemed exhausted; In Sandhausen, the former Bundesliga club did not lose undeservedly with 0: 1.
In view of the previous appearances, it is therefore quite daring to make a prognosis for the home win between St. Pauli and Nuremberg. The home advantage actually intended has also decreased compared to the Heidenheim match. Instead of over 2,200 spectators like against the Red-Blue, a maximum of 1,000 people are allowed to enter the Millerntor on Monday evening.
In terms of personnel, coach Timo Schultz, who has not yet been able to give his team the right handwriting, does not have any new failures to complain about.
1. FC Nürnberg would have expected the start of the new season a little differently. Four points after three games are pure mediocrity. In the meantime, it looked like the Franks could even write seven points before the international break. In the end, the “Clubberer” lost the home game against Darmstadt 98 despite a double lead (1: 0, 2: 1) but 2: 3.
Nevertheless, a certain development compared to the previous year cannot be overlooked in the protégés of coach Robert Klauss. Nuremberg are trying to defend aggressively forward and also achieve a higher percentage of ball possession than in 2019/2020. The Franconians have one of their great strengths, especially in the switching game after winning the ball.
In terms of quality, we also see the advantages in the guest, who could sometimes benefit from the fact that the Hamburgers certainly want to play a little more courageously in front of their home crowd. Players such as Nürnberger, Handwerker, Geis, Hack or Dovedan have already gained first division experience or will earn their money in a league higher in the short to medium term. If the Reds bring their potential onto the pitch, they will be among the top six in the league in our (subjective) eyes.
Another positive thing to mention is that Manuel Schäffler could finally celebrate his debut for Nuremberg on Monday evening.
