THE PREDICTION

A glance at the table would suggest that second-placed Bochum are clear favourites against third-from-bottom St. Pauli. However, the hosts are rejuvenated following back-to-back victories, which trebled their wins tally for the season. Coach Timo Schultz has strengthened his squad during January, with Wolfsburg loanee Omar Marmoush netting twice in four games. Sunday’s win over Jahn Regensburg was also the first clean sheet they have managed all season, but they will do well to keep one against a Bochum side who have failed to score in just one of their last 10 league matches. The visitors have only won one of their last four away outings, though, which only makes predicting the result less clear-cut. Instead, the Both Teams To Score market appears a better option here.
