St. Pauli will welcome Magdeburg to Millerntor-Stadion for a matchday 4 fixture in Germany 2. Bundesliga. The last meeting on 7th August 2021 ended in a St. Pauli 3-2 win. Both sides have met three times in the most recent seasons. St. Pauli has won 3 matches, and Magdeburg failed to win on every occasion. Recent outings average 4.33 goals, while both teams score 100% of the time.
St. Pauli’s latest fixture against Kaiserslautern ended in an away 2-1 loss. St. Pauli dominated the possession of the ball but didn’t take advantage of it. St. Pauli was more dominant in the second half and scored in the 88 minute.
Magdeburg’s recent game against Holstein Kiel ended in a home 1-2 loss. Der Club had plenty of possession, but not so much in the final third of the pitch. Magdeburg put in a decent first-half display and scored in the 43rd minute.
Since the start of the season, St. Pauli is more dominant at home. They have one wins out of 1 games on home soil. Although St. Pauli is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 0% home clean sheets.
Magdeburg has picked up 3 points from the previous three league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Magdeburg has collected 3.00 points on average per away game, compared to 0.00 at home. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Magdeburg kept a clean sheet in just 0% of their visits.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory.My prediction is St. Pauli to win.
I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 5 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 100% of St. Pauli’s home and Magdeburg’s away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.
Both sides are dangerous going forward. St. Pauli has scored in 100% of home games. Magdeburg is a decent match and has scored in all away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
St. Pauli will host Magdeburg in the 4th round of the 2. Bundesliga, at the gorgeous and famous Millerntor. There’s a reason why St. Pauli are always better when playing at home – their fans are amazing. St. Pauli didn’t get promoted last season. They were very close, but they struggled in their last couple of games.
Pauli have lost profiles like Danny Kyereh and Guido Burgstaller in the transfer market, but they still have the quality to win. Their left back Paqarada is the best left back in the league, and they also got Johannes Eggestein. Magdeburg destroyed the 3. Bundesliga last year, but their squad have changed a lot since then. 2nd topscorer Luca Schuler who scored 12 goals last season, is yet to start this year. 3 reasons why this bet makes sense:
1) St. Pauli was the best home team in the league last year. 11 wins, 4 draws and 2 loses.
2) Magdeburg is statistically the worst side in the league. In their 3 games, they averaged 1.33 expected goals and 2.46 expected goals against. This is worse than bottom place Braunschweig and Bielefeld, who lost all of their 3 games.
3) Magdeburg have lost their last two games against Frankfurt (0-4), and Holstein Kiel (1-2). They are starting to show that they don’t have the quality to play in this division.
St. Pauli simply need to start winning. They are not favorites for promotion, but they belong in the top-6 at least. This game will be a great opportunity to take 3 points against one of the worst teams in the league. @2.00 is too good for me to ignore – especially with a filled Millerntor Stadium. Good luck!
