Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
After failing to win the last four league fixtures, St. Pauli will be looking to give fans some cheer when they face Erzgebirge Aue at their Milerntor-Stadion. The club based in the suburbs of Hamburg have been struggling in the 2. Bundesliga of late, and, as a result, Jos Luhukay’s men will find it hard to avoid relegation to the 3. Liga. Erzgebirge Aue, on the other hand, have slim chances of securing promotion to the Bundesliga, meaning that the lack of motivation could prove to be a big problem for the visiting team.
St. Pauli produce much better showings at home than on the travels, and even though the game will be played behind closed doors, we are tempted to put our money on Jos Luhukay’s charges. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Greece international Dimitrios Diamantakos, who scored his 9th goal of the season in a 1-1 draw with Karlsruher.
