Igor Matanovic (Shoulder Injury), Etienne Amenyido (Adductor problems), Christopher Avevor (Ankle Injury), David Nemeth (Pubitis) and Maurides (Meniscal Injury) won’t be playing for St. Pauli boss Fabian Hürzeler. Oladapo Afolayan cannot play in this game through suspension.
It’s our opinion that St. Pauli will probably use a 3-4-3 formation for this game and select Nikola Vasilj, Jakov Medic, Eric Smith, Karol Mets, Manolis Saliakas, Jackson Irvine, Marcel Hartel, Leart Paqarada, Connor Metcalfe, Lukas Daschner and Elias Saad.

Karlsruhe boss Christian Eichner has a number of players out of action. Tim Breithaupt (Ankle Fracture) and Daniel O'Shaughnessy (Hip problems) will not be playing here. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Jérôme Gondorf and Marcel Franke.

In this game, Karlsruhe have it in them to put one past this St. Pauli team, but it isn’t expected to be as many as they will have scored against them.
