Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Hertha and St Pauli go head to head at Olympiastadion in the closing match of Saturday’s program. The capital club aim to build on back-to-back wins over Eintracht Braunschweig and Holstein Kiel and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Barring any fresh injury worries, Pal Dardai is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated Kiel 3-2 at the weekend, but all Palko Dardai, Ibrahim Maza, and Agustin Rogel remain in the treatment room.
St Pauli, on the other hand, proved their worth in back-to-back victories over Holstein Kiel (5-1) and Schalke (3-1) and given their attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on over 2.5 goals. Both Scott Banks and Jackson Irvine are out of contention through injuries, speaking of the visiting team. In their last meeting in the 2. Bundesliga Hertha defeated St. Pauli 3-2.
