Bochum 27/20 to beat St. Pauli in Friday’s Bundesliga II battle
Competition: Bundesliga II
Market: Bochum win
Odds: 27/20 @ Bet 365
Hoping to extend on their unbeaten run this week, Bochum will host away day strugglers St. Pauli on Friday evening.
Starting with the hosts, continuing on what has been a bright run of form in the second half of the season, Bochum have their sights set on securing a top-half finish this season. In their 29 Bundesliga II matches this year, they have recorded eight wins, 12 draws, and nine defeats, scoring 45 and conceding 46 in return. With a points tally of 36, Bochum open Friday’s fixtures in ninth with only their goal difference keeping them in the top-nine. However, as for their recent run of results, the hosts find themselves in the midst of a seven-match Bundesliga II unbeaten run, winning four of those contests. More impressive, Bochum are unbeaten in their last three matches on home soil, securing back-to-back wins.
As for the visitors, still continuing to show some worrying issues on the road, St. Pauli still find themselves looking over their shoulder at the drop zone. In their 29 Bundesliga II matches this year, they have recorded eight wins, 11 draws, and 10 defeats, scoring 35 and conceding 37 in return. With a points tally of 35 and sat just five points clear of the bottom-three, it should also be noted that St. Pauli hold the second-worst attacking record in the division. As for their recent run of results, Friday’s guests have won just one of their last five Bundesliga II matchups and even more worrying for St. Pauli, they have managed to land just a single away victory so far this season. Given the recent gulf in class between the two sides, we’re backing a home victory on Friday evening.
