Kiel vs St. Pauli Free Betting Tips
There are no major differences between the two clubs, as indicated by Kiel vs St. Pauli before the game. The host is slightly favored in this regard, but there is no clear trend.
Not only the table situation, but also the current shape curve sees a small advantage for the host from Kiel. Nevertheless, the two teams are not dissimilar at the moment, which could make for an exciting game.
Kiel – Statistics & current form
The host from Kiel is right in the middle of the 2nd Bundesliga. Holstein came well from the winter break, already showing in the first competitive matches that the good impressions from the test games were no accident. Coach Ole Werner, who took over the team in October, has a good influence on the team.
Kiel faced some problems against Darmstadt, but especially in Karlsruhe they played objectively, concentrated forward and showed themselves efficient in the last third. The problem in some games is still the lack of balance. The risk on the offensive is then sometimes too high, and fast counterattacks threaten. Therefore, before the game Kiel vs. St. Pauli our prediction that both teams will score.
Especially the integration of Jae-sung Lee on the offensive is currently very good. In Karlsruhe, the South Korean acted as a center forward, but at times dropped back into midfield and served players like Porath & Co. very well. It is interesting that Kiel is often struggling at home. The last home win comes from October, when VfL Bochum could be defeated. Only two of the nine home games were won, which is a much poorer record than abroad.
However, the latest developments in Kiel should serve as encouragement. The team goes through a development process under coach Werner, the squad is also very well staffed, especially in the width. Before the game Kiel vs. St. Pauli also shows the betting odds that a home win is anything but unrealistic and yet the odds are still tempting.
The personnel situation at Kiel is also relaxed. With Jannik Dehm a strong right-back is missing, but otherwise Ole Werner can draw on the full. Many changes are not necessary after the victory in Karlsruhe, the fast Iyoha is an option for the offensive.
Probable lineup of Kiel:
↪ Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Gelios; Neumann, Thesker, Wahl, Van den Bergh; Meffert, Muhling, Ozcan; Porath, Lee Jae-Sung, Iyoha
↪ Unavailable: Dehm (Injured)
↪ Doubtful: Reese (Injured)

St. Pauli – Statistics & current form
After a good final sprint in 2019, when two wins in a row were won, the year 2020 started rather slowly for St. Pauli. The 0: 3 in Fürth was sometimes an oath of revelation because almost everything was missing. But the 1-1 draw against Stuttgart gave hope again. These two games showed one thing in particular: St. Pauli is very inconsistent!
And what face does the team of coach Jos Luhukay show in the north duel in Kiel? That remains to be seen, but generally the away record is a disaster this season. Precisely because the guests are still waiting for their first win abroad, Kiel vs. St. Pauli’s look at the odds of a home win.
Four draws and five defeats – that’s the score of the guests in the previous away games. In addition, St. Pauli only scored eight goals in these nine games. It is therefore not surprising that one has to deal with the relegation battle at the moment. Demand and reality are currently very different.
The team repeatedly shows that it is good at playing football and against it. Against Stuttgart, a favorite for promotion, St. Pauli kept up well and could have won with a bit more luck.
What is particularly painful is the loss of central defender and captain Avevor, who is suffering from a broken fibula. It will only be available again in the final sprint and of course leaves a big gap. This is particularly evident when St. Pauli is constantly exposed to opposing pressure. The automatisms in the current defensive line-up are not fully established, too often individual errors cause goals to be conceded.
After the 1-1 draw against Stuttgart, Jos Luhukay should be reasonably satisfied. So big changes in the starting eleven do not have to be made. Buchtmann, who can be dangerous with his good technique and solid passing especially on the counterattack, could move into the team for Sobota, the fast Lankford is an option for Gyökeres.
Probable lineup of St. Pauli:
↪ Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Himmelmann; Ohlsson, Ostigard, Buballa, Penney; Flum; Miyaichi, Sobota, Benatelli, Gyokeres; Veerman
↪ Unavailable: Avevor (Injured), Conteh (Injured), Lawrence (Injured)
↪ Doubtful: Zander (Injured)
