Kaiserslautern – St. Pauli

17th March 2018   ·   0 Comments

After important three pointer in front of own fans in one of most interesting matches of the round before against Union Berlin, players of Kaiserslautern didn’t manage to get points away from home against Greuther Furth last Saturday afternoon following 2:1 victory.

Their opponents were simply better, taking a strong approach from the first minute as they took the lead in seventeenth minute via Green, while the guests managed to level up the result in last moments of the first halftime via Osawe in one of rare chances for them during the whole clash.

Hosts upped the tempo and limited the visitors to only couple of approaches in second, deservedly reaching the winning goal in 73rd minute via Maloca, but almost no threatened later on. This result was a setback for Klautern, as the side remains at rock bottom position at the table with six points less than play-out placed Aue and a victory here is only option for them.

Central defender Giuliano Modica (5/0) is out due injury, same as defensive midfielder Mads Albaek (4/0), midfielder Daniel Halfar (9/1) and Kacper Przybylko (1/0) all of them with limited influence so far.

 

St Pauli, on the other side, comes from a point taken last Saturday in a goalless game at home against Braunschweig. However, must be said that they did deserve more out of the game, being simply far more concrete side during the whole game.

More of the ball possession and at least three great chances weren’t enough for them to take the lead in the first halftime, as the second part became less and less interesting as the time was progressing probably with neither of the sides wanting to risk a lot.

The side is in the middle of the table and thanks to extremely equal teams this season, they are six points behind third placed Holstein Kiel and still with chances for promotion, but also just five points above the play-out placed Aue, with their course yet to be determined.

Guests continue to miss central defenders Lasse Sobiech (21/3), Marc Hornschuh (6/0), Clemens Schoppenhauer (2/0), midfielder Christopher Buchtmann (12/4) and forward Waldemar Sobota (24/4) all due injuries.

  • K’lautern is yet to have consecutive victories in home matches.

This game seems to be pretty much must win for both teams. Klautern is in very difficult position and has nothing to wait for here, while the visitors also need points if they are to chase the upper part of the table. St Pauli have been decent on the road this season, but need that extra effort if they are to be more competitive, while Klautern anyway stands with far better chances in front of own fans and they do risk more when playing at own ground.
