St. Pauli - Bochum Prediction, Picks and Tips
Is the Millerntor head on Friday night again? The fact is that the starting point on the Elbe could not be better. Not only on the last matchday in the home game against the KSC, the fans of Kiez-Kicker in their own stadium drama got bid to the last second. This time there was no happy ending from the home side's point of view, as the guests from Baden scored one point with two goals and silenced the moody crowd. But the next thriller is already in the starting blocks. The upcoming opponent is also a real drama queen. VfL Bochum has already played 3: 3 twice this season, won 3: 2 twice and even offered the Bayern a really hot fight in the final until the final minute. The club from the Ruhr area is thus the perfect opponent for the troupe of Jos Luhukay, to open the 13th round in the second league duly. The floodlights arrive at Millerntor and at 17:30 the ball rolls on the lawn. Although the two clubs in the table are separated by seven, only two are between them. This shows clearly how close it is in the second half of the table of the lower house to the point. The guests from the Ruhr could therefore pass by with an away win at the hamburgers. This away win does not indicate itself when playing St. Pauli vs. St. Pauli. Bochum the quotas of bookmakers believe. With successful bets on the away win, the stake could be more than tripled. Excitement is always pre-programmed and the results of the two clubs so far will entertain the spectators at the Millerntor.
If you remember back to the speech of Jos Luhukay before the start of the season and the associated subdued goal for this season, then the FC St. Pauli is currently absolutely in the target. The coach has been aiming for a one-place position in the standings, which Hamburg currently occupies ninth. The Kiez kickers could even be much better placed if they had not made some unnecessary points in the recent past. After two close 1-0 defeats against Darmstadt and Heidenheim was followed last weekend, the home game against the KSC, which looked long after a turnaround to the positive. With 2-0, the hosts led through to the final phase by a double from attacker Dimitrios Diamantakos. The role as the sole tip was the Greeks very good, which is why this formation should also be used against Bochum again. But the 26-year-old's brace was not enough for the home win. Two late goals from the visitors, 2-2 in injury time by Pourie left Millerntor silent. As the overall performance was nevertheless very neat and the injury situation is still tense, Jos Luhukay will hardly make any changes to the starting eleven. With goalkeepers Brodersen, Avevor, Park, Buchtmann and Conteh missing some players in the squad. In addition, the many rotations were used by the media as the reason for the many late goals. Whether this is true or not, she is left undecided. The fact is that the Kiez kickers have lost eight points by conceding in the last ten minutes and the goal difference in this time is at 0: 7. If a hint to the home team between St. Pauli and Bochum should be successful, then this time a concentrated performance over 90 minutes must be.
VfL Bochum was for a long time the only team in the second division that was still without a win. That resulted in an early change of coach from Robin Dutt to Thomas Reis. With the new trainer, not only the performance, but also the results are so slowly, but surely again. Meanwhile, two victories have been achieved by VfL. With twelve points, the club is on the 16th place in the table again on the saving shore and the courageous Cup appearance recently against Bayern, the VfL has earned the respect of all Fussall Germany. Despite the late defeat against the record champions, the positive momentum could be taken into the league and on the last matchday there was finally the first home win of the season. Already at break, the Blue-White led against the club from Nuremberg 3: 0 with goals from Soares, Wintzheimer and Lorenz. Since Bochum already gave away a victory by conceding a goal in the final minute to 3: 3 at home twice this season, the fans held after the first goal of the Franks to the air. But this time it should be enough and the three counters remained in the Ruhr. The uptrend should continue seamlessly on Friday in the north of the republic. It is unlikely that Trainer Reis will make any major changes. The injury situation has not changed. This is also a man again set, which has made during the week for positive headlines: Anthony Losilla. The captain has extended his contract for a year until 2021 and thus remains an important component and leader of the district club in the medium term. Whether this message has a positive influence on the fact that between St. Pauli and Bochum a forecast in the direction of the guests is likely, is questionable. But the captain sets at least one character in a hitherto complicated series.
