Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
St. Pauli will look to recover from the German Cup defeat to Union Berlin when they take on Karlsruher in the 2. Bundesliga round 25. Timo Schultz’s men did well to beat relegation-threatened Ingolstadt in their last league match, and a triumph over Karlsruher should see them climb to automatic promotion berth. Even though all James Lawrence, Phillipp Ziereis, and Maximilian Dittgen miss out with injuries, home win should be considered as St. Pauli have turned their Millerntor-Stadion into a real fortress.
Christian Eichner’s troops, on the other hand, have been in a fine form of late, with the team beating both Nurnberg and Kiel, while sharing the spoils with Schalke. Jerome Gondorf is banned for the match, while all Robin Bormuth, Sebastian Jung, Paul Lohr, and Leon Jensen are out of contention through injuries, speaking of the visiting side.
