1. FC Nürnberg vs FC St. Pauli: Preview & Prediction
The 1. FC Nürnberg will continue this season simply not really in the track. The results of the “club” continue to grow, a Siegesserie one could not even start under Neo coach Michael Köllner. In the past few weeks, successes and defeats have been changing regularly. Lastly, they had to beat Hannover 96 with 0: 1 before, before there was a 2-1 defeat against the Karlsruher SC, a break against Union Berlin (0: 1), a victory against Arminia Bielefeld (1: 0) and a Further plunge against Greuther Fürth. Nevertheless, all the victories of the last few weeks have been scored against teams that fight against the relegation in the 2nd Bundesliga, with St. Pauli on Friday they have the same guest. The backround table, however, speaks even more for the Kellerkind from Hamburg, which in 15 games of the spring season already collected 15 points and thus five more than Nuremberg itself. In addition, the Franks are still struggling with gross problems on the defensive to have. Proof A: With one exception, the FCN has collected a hit in each individual game of the calendar year 2017. The home advantage played only a subordinate role for Nuremberg this season, but they were almost as many counters as they did at home (18). However, one lost only one of the last four home games, the last two victories were also celebrated in front of home crowd. Bitter: With Kirschbaum, Sepsi and Lippert, Interimscoach Köllner has to forego three important alternatives in the already susceptible defense.
FC St. Pauli
The backlog for the team of FC St. Pauli was very promising, holding on to coach Ewald Lienen during the first round crisis seemed to pay off. After all, in the first six games of the spring season four victories and one draw were won. However, the success of this success is only a small part of the success, and the Hamburgers are back in the middle of the pitch instead of only in the relegation battle. The last full success dates from the beginning of March this year, so St. Pauli has been without victory for over a month. Lastly, they won a 0-0 win against SV Sandhausen, but before that they had to beat the teams of Union Berlin (1: 2) and Aue (0: 1). Above all the latter bankruptcy was, of course, a poison for the morality of the Lienen Elf. That one can also be different proved the point gain against the top team from Hannover. Overall, however, there is a lack of consistency in the start-up. Positive: Coach Lienen can play on all the squad players on Friday. Also, the fact that the last defensive was very stable in the last three encounters made it possible to score a goal. Especially in an away game this will be a decisive success factor. Also the offensive statistics are appealing with 13 hits from 10 games in the previous round. In addition, St. Pauli had won as many victories as before before their own audience. Of the last five duels with Nuremberg, however, St. Pauli won only one. In addition, the Franks offered a very strong and ambitious performance against Hanover, which was just missing the point gain.
For St. Pauli it is much more, Nuremberg is currently playing only the “golden pineapple”. Accordingly, we expect the Hamburgers to reach their limits on Friday and will be rewarded in the end in the form of a point win, especially since the home performances of Nuremberg were anything but sovereign this season
