St Pauli vs Bochum Betting Tips and Predictions: St Pauli
While St Pauli are winless in their last five matches, their home record in the league is a bit better. They’ve won three of their last five matches at the Millerntor Stadion and against Bochum, the last time they lost at home to them was in 2014. The two sides have only met on 17 times at the Millerntor, with the home side only losing once.
St Pauli’s overall form of late has certainly taken a wobble, zero wins in their last four matches, two draws and two losses. Against Karlsruher at home last weekend they showed great character though to draw level in the 90th minute after being 0-2 down.
St Pauli vs Bochum Betting Tips and Predictions: Bochum
Bochum’s overall form is decent enough, winning two, drawing one and losing two in all competitions. On the road things aren’t as good, one win, one draw and three losses. They currently find themselves in the relegation playoff position, however there’s only three points separating them in 16th and Karlsruher in eight so it’s far too early to say they’ll be down there for the remainder of the season.
They’ll be all too aware of their disastrous record away to St Pauli and will be eager to finally get the monkey off their back and with both teams below Bochum taking on each other at the same time on Friday they’ll be eager to put some distance between themselves and the bottom two.
