THE TEAM NEWS

ST. PAULI

  • St. Pauli put a four-match unbeaten run together before the enforced break in action to put them in relative comfort in mid-table in Bundesliga 2 but they will be fully aware that some poor results will put them back in danger due to how tight it is at the bottom.
  • St. Pauli have been solid at home so far this season having lost just three times on home soil while they have managed to avoid in any of their last five home league matches which will leave them confident ahead of this clash.
  • To add to that confidence, St. Pauli have benefited from the lack of action with long-term absentees Christopher Avevor, Christan Conteh and Henk Veerman all in with a chance of returning for this game.

NURNBERG

  • Nurnberg enter this round of fixtures just two spots ahead of the relegation spots and face a big challenge to pull away from danger with their three-match unbeaten run in away fixtures set to be put to the test with this tricky trip to St. Pauli
  • Nurnberg have managed to turn things around in their recent fixtures having gone nine matches without a victory and have managed to pick up four wins in their eight matches since that disappointing streak.
  • Facing a terrible crisis in goal due to injuries to three goalkeepers when this fixture was originally slated, Nurnberg have been given some relief with the availability of Felix Dornebusch but Patrick Klandt and Andreas Lukse are still out as well as several other outfield players.

THE PREDICTION

Nurnberg avoided a goalkeeping crisis when this game was called off from its initial date but they will still be without two options between the sticks for this rearranged clash. They have a lengthy list of unavailable players which will make this an even more difficult trip to St. Pauli. The hosts were on a solid run of form before action was halted and with just three losses to their name on home soil all season, they are likely to be too good for Nurnberg in this one.
