THE TEAM NEWS

ST. PAULI

Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Himmelmann; Park, Avevor, Knoll, Buballa; Hornschuh; Miyaichi, Becker, Daehli, Conteh; Diamantakos

Unavailable: Veerman (Injured), Tashchy (Injured), Flum (Injured), Zander (Injured), Benatelli (Injured), Ostigard (Injured)

Doubtful: Ziereis (Injured)

  • A last-minute equaliser denied St. Pauli an opening win at Arminia Bielefeld on Monday night but they could have little complaints about the result and must recover quickly for this Friday night clash.
  • There were no new signings in Jos Luhukay's starting XI on Monday but Marc Hornschuh made his long-awaited comeback from injury and youngster Christian Conteh was handed a debut, which he crowned with a goal.
  • Brighton loanee Viktor Gyokeres made a late cameo against Bielefeld and will be hopeful of featuring again with Borys Tashchy and Henk Veerman sidelined by injuries, leaving Dimitrios Diamantakos as the only other fit striker.

GREUTHER FURTH

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Burchert; Meyerhofer, Caligiuri, Mavraj, Wittek; Green, Seguin, Mohr; Stefaniak, Keita-Ruel, Redondo

Unavailable: Steininger (Out of favour), Parker (Out of favour)

Doubtful:

  • Greuther Furth started their campaign with a 2-0 defeat at home to Erzgebirge Aue, despite creating the better chances, and have won just one of their last seven Bundesliga II matches stretching back to last season.
  • Summer signings Marco Meyerhofer, Marvin Stefaniak and Mergim Mavraj all went straight into the starting line-up against Aue while Havard Nielsen came off the bench for his debut, as did 18-year-old Jamie Leweling.
  • Strikers Daniel Steininger and Shawn Parker remain out of the first-team picture under coach Stefan Leitl and will play no part, but otherwise Leitl has a full squad to pick from for the trip to Hamburg.

BETTING ANALYSIS

St. Pauli have scored no more than one goal in six of their last seven league games at home and Luhukay is regarded as one of the more defensive-minded coaches around. Greuther Furth were one of only two sides that failed to score on the opening weekend so this could be a low-scoring affair.

Betting tip: Under (Over or under 2.5 goals)
