Stuttgart clash with St Pauli at Mercedes-Benz Arena in the first round of the 2. Bundesliga.
Stuttgart failed previous season in the Bundesliga as they earned just 33 points in 34 games with 50:75 goal difference. We should mention Stuttgart ended the season on 9-game winless streak as they recorded their last victory on 5 March while their losing streak was 6 straight games. During the preseason Stuttgart made over the squad and won all 6 friendlies with 28:4 goal difference. Obviously, the hosts are determined to return to the Bundesliga as soon as possible.

St Pauli in their turn had a good spell in the 2015/16 season of the 2. Bundesliga as they took 4th spot with 53 points earned and 45:39 goal difference. This summer the visitors played 8 friendly matches as they recorded 3 wins, 1 draw and 4 defeats with 10:8 goal difference. Remarkably, despite finishing on 4th position last season, St Pauli aren’t considered as contenders for the promotion in the current one.
Stuttgart played St Pauli five times and won all of them with 11:2 goal difference. The hosts are set to return to the elite division after this season so they shouldn’t lose points at home ground. We are sticking with Stuttgart.
Prediction for the match; Stuttgart to win.
