St.Pauli hosts Nurnberg in round 22 of the Bundesliga 2. The hosts will be aiming to get closer to the middle of the table and far away from relegation as possible. On 11`th place with 27 points they are only 4 away from the danger zone. It has been a miserable season for St. Pauli and the dream of promoting quickly evaporated. A big part of the problem is their home matches this season which are under any criticism. With 2-5-3 so far and 12:16 gd St.Pauli is the second worst team of the league with only Kaiserslautern being worse. The ineffectivnes in front of goal is visible both at home and away as St.pauli attackers scored just 22 goals in 21 matches.
St.Pauli started the second part well with an away win over Dresden 1:3 but again came two losses against relegation threatened Darmstadt 0:1 at home and 10`th Heidenheim away 1:3.
St.Pauli has won 1 of their last 8 home matches and picked up 4 draws against average opponents.
Today they will miss: Hornschuh (def.6-0), Zander (def.17-0), Ziereis (def.0-0), Buchtmann (mid.12-4), Cenk Sahin (mid.16-2), Miyaichi (mid.0-0), Verlinden (mid.0-0).
Nurnberg is the second team of the league with 40 points and by many the main promotion candidate. They are now 3 points behind Fortuna and if they win this they can share 1`st place. Two teams will promote directly this season so first place isn`t paramount. Nurnberg so far has been the best away team of the league with 7-1-2 and 22:12 gd. They also have the best away attack. They haven`t started the second part great with a 2:2 draw at home vs Regensburg but things quickly came together. Nurnberg has problems on home ground all season long and are far from convincing. The next two matche were however won as Union was beaten with 1:0 away and Aue demolished with 4:1 at home.
Nurnberg was in the bottom part of the table last season but have definitely picked up the pace and made proper investements in key players. They are on a right track and I guess have a bone to pick with St.Pauli. St Pauli won in the last two visits and Nurnberg players would surely like to return the favor. Nurnberg has been in great form without a loss in 8 matches and with 5 wins in that span.
For today Nurnberg will miss: Kirschbaum (keeper, 11-0), Lippert (def.0-0), Kerk (mid.3-0), Salli (att.16-1), Zrelak (att.2-0).
I like the visitors to take all the points today.
