Tip Reasoning

  • Schalke can mathematically confirm their top-three place ahead of the final day with victory.
  • St Pauli must win in order to keep their promotion dream alive on the final day.
  • Schalke failed to score in just one of their 32 league games this season.
  • Both teams scored in 69% of St Pauli’s away league games this season.

Immediate promotion beckons for Schalke

With just two games remaining in this 2. Bundesliga season, Schalke can all but seal their promotion with victory here. However, just two points separate the top-three sides and a top-two place is necessary for guaranteed promotion, so even a draw will leave Schalke vulnerable to capture.

Schalke have been rather hit and miss at home, with two wins and as many losses across the last four games here, though they were often exciting affairs with those games averaging a sizeable 4.5 total goals per-game!

St. Pauli could strive and collapse

Winning this game is simply a must for St Pauli, as their recent five-game winless run has seen them fall three points adrift of the top-three with just two games to go. The visitors did at least score in each of their last four games though, so expect them to come flying out of the traps in search of a crucial win.

Playing with an attacking style could leave St Pauli open to collapse, with gaps opening that table-toppers Schalke will be all too grateful to exploit. Not only this, St Pauli picked up just 20 points away from home, considerably less than their league-high haul of 34 in home games.

A draw in this game suits neither side, so we predict that both teams will score with over 2.5 total goals in a must win game for both sides in the promotion race. As for the correct score, we are sticking with a 2-1 home win, as Schalke should just about edge this in terms of form and pedigree.
