St. Pauli will be hoping to return to winning ways here following the 1-0 Bundesliga 2 defeat in their last game at the hands of SV Sandhausen.
The only scorer from St. Pauli was Daniel Buballa (45' Own goal).
St. Pauli have been finding it hard to keep clean sheets recently, but they have also found ways to score goals themselves. Looking at their last 6 games, St. Pauli have conceded in 6 of them as well as getting on the scoresheet in 5 of those games. Putting that to one side, we must now wait to see if that trend shall persist here in this game or not.
Their past results show that St. Pauli:
- haven’t lost in the league to Nuremberg in their previous 6 games.
- are unbeaten in their last 10 league matches at home. They have been so resilient here.
Following on from tasting defeat last time out to Darmstadt in Bundesliga 2 competition, Nuremberg and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
For Nuremberg, the goals were scored by Robin Hack (3') and Felix Lohkemper (61'). Serdar Dursun (55'), Marvin Mehlem (76') and Nicolai Rapp (93') scored for Darmstadt.
Robert Klauß’s Nuremberg have seen their efforts on goal rewarded 7 times in the course of their latest six matches. The total of goals that they have conceded during those same matches equals 10.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Nuremberg:
- have not registered a win against St. Pauli when they’ve played them away from home in the last 3 matches in the league.
- are unbeaten in their last 5 league matches away from home.
- are without an away win for the past 2 matches in the league.

It seems to us that Nuremberg and St. Pauli should both get enough opportunities to score, although it’s hard to separate the two.
A draw looks like a realistic possibility, but we’ll see what happens. That is why we are leaning toward a very even match with a 1-1 score draw at the end of the 90 minutes.
