Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
After defeating Nurnberg thanks to Jakov Medic’s goal, St. Pauli will look to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they face Hannover on Sunday. Fabian Hurzeler’s men are eager to escape the danger zone, but this will be anything but a walk in the park for the home side. Adam Dzwigala has joined the likes of Connor Metcalfe, Luca Zander, Etienne Amenyido, and David Nemeth in the recovery room, with Marcel Beifus likely to replace Dzwigala in the starting XI.
Die Roten, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-1 loss to Kaiserslautern, which is probably the main reason why we are going to bet on the relegation-threatened hosts. Hannover forward Cedric Teuchert, who has netted seven goals so far this term, is a major doubt, and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
