Hamburg vs St Pauli: Top Free Betting Tips
Hamburg and St. Pauli played one of the most interesting games of this season when they met at the start – St. Pauli won 3:2 back then. This fixture might be a completely different story as St. Pauli have not been at their best in the domestic league lately.
Both Teams To Score – Yes
As mentioned above, Hamburger and St. Pauli had an outstanding game earlier in the season, which ended with 5 goals. We expect something similar in this match, although we expect Hamburg to be the better team on the pitch. Their performance at home has been incredible although they had more draws than expected. Hamburg have scored at least once in all their home games to date – 10 total. On the other side, St. Pauli, the strongest team in the league, conceded at least one goal in 9/10 games on the road. We expect both sides to score at least once.
Match Result – Draw
Despite the fact that St. Pauli have been sitting at the top from the start of the season, their away performances have been far from perfect. The team won just one of its last 5 games on the road. On the other side, Hamburg are one of two teams that remain unbeaten at home – the other one being St. Pauli. The curious thing here is that Hamburg won only 4/10 games – the other 6 ended in draws.
We expect to see the same here against St. Pauli, who have not been the best visitors but remain the absolute strongest team. It will be a difficult game that will likely be decided in the final minutes.
Alternative Corners – Over 9 Corners
We have two of the top teams when it comes to corners. And this makes this game one of the best choices for such a bet in the entire season. See both teams' last five games. Hamburg have taken an average of 6.40 corners which is incredible. But St. Pauli's stats are even more impressive – the team has taken an average of 7.00 corners per match in its last 5 games, even though the results have not been perfect. We expect to see a lot more than 9 corners in this match.
