Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
St. Pauli and Fortuna Dusseldorf square off against each other at Millerntor-Stadion on day 13 of the new 2. Bundesliga campaign. St. Pauli just do not seem to be capable of bringing glory days back to Millerntor-Stadion, with the team sitting in the relegation zone ahead of the visit of Fortuna. Timo Schultz’s troops have recorded no more than one win in the new season, and, no doubt, they are low on confidence ahead of Sunday’s clash.
Defender Philipp Ziereis, who suffered an injury in a 2-2 draw with Aue, is unlikely to feature against Fortuna Dusseldorf. Uwe Rosler’s men have been in a splendid form of late, with the team recording a win in each of their last three league fixtures. Since St. Pauli suffered four defeats in the previous five league fixtures, away win should be considered.
Highlighted Player (Alfredo Morales):
Alfredo Morales is an American football player who was born in Berlin on 12 May, 1990. The USA midfielder moved to Germany as a boy and he played for the likes of BSC Reinickendorf 21, Borussia Pankow, FC Concordia Wilhelmsruh and Hertha BSC during his youth career.
Morales played 81 games for Hertha II at senior level, scoring 11 league goals for the capital club. He made 20 appearances for the first team as well, but in 2013 he joined Ingolstadt on a two-year deal. Alfredo Morales was eligible to play for both Germany and USA, but he decided to represent the Yanks on the international level.
The 183-cm-tall midfielder made his USA debut on 29 January, 2013 against Canada. He came as a substitute 15 minutes before the final whistle. It has to be noted that Morales represented United States of America at the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup. His main position is central midfield, but he is capable of playing as both centre back and a defensive midfielder.
