Match Preview

  • Despite suffering their heaviest loss of this Bundesliga 2 (BL2) season in the last round, St. Pauli remain in good spirits. One-third of their campaign points have come from their last six BL2 matches, while 75.76% of their overall points have come at home – where they are unbeaten in six BL2 games (W4, D2).
  • Getting the opening goal could be crucial, as 65.38% of St. Pauli’s BL2 results (if excluding goalless draws) have favoured the team scoring first (W17, D8, L1). The half-time score could be equally vital, as St. Pauli have lost all seven BL2 matches while trailing at half-time.
  • Promotion hopefuls Heidenheim are chasing their first back-to-back BL2 wins since last December. Yet, in a somewhat alarming statistic, just 36.36% of their BL2 points have come on the road. Poor first halves on the road remain a major concern, as Heidenheim have been leading at half-time in just one of their 13 BL2 away matches.
  • Regardless, Heidenheim have won all the five applicable BL2 matches while leading at half-time though they are yet to win whilst trailing at the break (D2, L5). Again, scoring first could be the way to go, as Heidenheim have won all 11 BL2 matches in which they have done so.
  • Players to watch: Henk Veerman has been St. Pauli’s first scorer in his last five goalscoring BL2 matches, while Tim Kleindienst has been Heindheim’s last scorer in each of the last five BL2 games to see him score.
  • Stat attack: St. Pauli have picked up the joint-lowest number of yellow cards this season (33).
  • Fifteen of St. Pauli’s last 16 BL2 games have seen matching half-time and full-time results.
  • Heidenheim have scored nearly a third (31.43%) of their BL2 goals beyond the 80th minute.
