Regensburg will be looking for an improved result here after the 3-0 Bundesliga 2 defeat last time out to SC Paderborn 07.
In that match, Regensburg managed 39% possession and 6 attempts on goal with 1 on target. On the other side, Paderborn 07 had 22 shots on goal with 10 of them on target. Marcel Hoffmeier (21'), Robert Leipertz (69') and Marvin Pieringer (86') scored for SC Paderborn 07.
A recurring feature of more recent Regensburg games is the number of nil scores.
Taking their prior sextet of matches leading up to this one, in as many as 6 of them a bet on "Both Teams to Score" would've been a loser. Still, we will just have to wait and see if that pattern might be replicated in this upcoming match.
Their prior results show that Regensburg:
- have not won against St. Pauli in their previous 2 league matches.
- have not won at home in their last 3 league games.
Last time out, St. Pauli drew 1-1 in the Bundesliga 2 match with SV Sandhausen.
In that match, St. Pauli had 69% possession and 26 attempts on goal with 7 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for St. Pauli was Jackson Irvine (38'). Sandhausen had 7 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target. David Kinsombi (71') was the scorer for SV Sandhausen.
Looking at their form, and St. Pauli have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing their opponents hit 9 goals overall. At the back, St. Pauli just haven’t been too solid at all.
Coming into this meeting, St. Pauli are without a win away from home in their last 8 matches in the league. A poor run.

Team News: St. Pauli
St. Pauli boss Timo Schultz has a number of players out of action. Christopher Avevor (Ankle Injury) and Adam Dzwigala (Ankle Injury) won’t be making appearances.

Looking at these two teams, we feel that Regensburg might need a bit of good fortune to find the net against this St. Pauli side who we think will manage to score & go ahead.
