Bochum form and stats

The hosts are modest favourites in this match, with the bookmakers estimating the chance of a home win at about 50% +- five percent. It's interesting to look at how Bochum have performed under similar circumstances, so here are some numbers: When modest favourites like this (we found 13 games) they have won six times, drawn five and lost two.

With the first game of the season soon underway, it's time to look at the results from the Bochum friendly games in pre-season: Bochum played six friendlies, won 2, drew 1 and lost 3. If you are really into statistics you might appreciate knowing that Bochum scored 6 goals and conceded 8 in these six games.

St. Pauli form and stats

We have checked recent matches where Pauli have had similar odds to win. Win-draw-lose statistics from those 14 games were two victories, three draws and nine defeats.

It's a day of discovery for St. Pauli as they finally learn what impact all the hours of pre-season training, along with the changes in personnel, have had on their performance in an official game. It's never easy knowing what to expect based on friendly games, of which St. Pauli have played three with the results W1-D1-L1 (win-draw-lost). In these games St. Pauli has scored 2 goals and conceded 2 times.

Let's have a look at how St. Pauli performed last season in the 2. Bundesliga: They landed a 14th position in the league table after playing out 9 victories, 12 draws and 13 defeats. In total they scored 41 and conceded 50 goals in these matches. The numbers for away games only are: Won 1 - drew 6 and lost 10 with 17/36 goals scored/conceded.
