THE TEAM NEWS

ST. PAULI

  • St. Pauli’s five-match unbeaten run in Bundesliga 2 was abruptly halted as they suffered a big loss on the road at Darmstadt 98 at the weekend and they now find themselves back in the relegation mix after that result.
  • The visitors were on the end of a 4-0 as they failed to make their pressure count when attempting to get level when trailing by just a single goal and they crumbled in the final 20 minutes as they conceded three times.
  • To add insult to injury, Dimitrios Diamantakos failed to hit the target with his spot kick in stoppage time while Leo Ostigard collected his fifth booking of the season to leave him suspended for this clash which rounded off a miserable day at the office for St. Pauli.

HEIDENHEIM

  • Heidenheim bounced back from their disappointing outing against Bochum as they got back to winning ways with a narrow victory over Wehen Wiesbaden at the weekend to put themselves right back into the race for promotion.
  • Heidenheim were the better team for the majority of the contest but did not manage to take a deserved lead until the 70th minute when Tobias Mohr found the back of the net to break the deadlock.
  • They were given a scare when Wehen thought they had levelled in the final 10 minutes but VAR ruled the goal out and Heidenheim were able to hold on. They also avoided any further injury problems in that game but are still without Denis Thomalla, Maximilian Thiel and Oliver Husing.

THE PREDICTION

St. Pauli suffered a big loss at the weekend and now face another tough challenge as they host Heidenheim. The home side were unbeaten in their last five Bundesliga 2 fixtures before the 4-0 defeat against Darmstadt 98 but will hope a return to home comforts can help them here. They have not lost any of their last six home games in the league but they have failed to win any of their last four matches against Heidenheim and with the visitors desperate for a win to stay in the promotion race, the away side should be able to avoid defeat at the very least here.
