Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Millerntor-Stadion will host Sunday’s football game between St. Pauli and Hannover, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. St. Pauli have been producing fine displays in the second half of the season, but that is unlikely to help them book their place in the playoffs. The club based in Hamburg produce much better showings at home than on the travels, and it is no wonder the bookies see them as slim favourites to win Sunday’s game.
Die Roten, on the other hand, have already secure the 2. Bundesliga survival, meaning that they will have little to play for in the penultimate game of the season. Since St. Pauli have turned their Millentor-Stadion into a real fortress, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. In the first half of the season St. Pauli recorded a 3-2 win over Hannover.
