This is the last match from Round 5 where FC St. Pauli faces Dynamo Dresden. The situation from both Teams is a bit different before the match today. While St. Pauli can be pleased with their start into the season where they could collect 5 Points so far is Dresden at the bottom of the table with only 2 Points and after Ingolstadt’s win on Friday. Of course both need the win here. St. Pauli can climb up till Place 5 while Dresden can leave the last Place. Despite all an interesting match ahead.
At St. Pauli were they not very pleased about the information that Dresden sucked their Coach Pacult, above all Coach Frontzeck sees this a bit difficult now as he does not know on which players and tactic interim Coach Menze counts. So all the information he has from Dynamo is past. But nevertheless he wants to count on the same eleven who got a Point against Bochum. They played well there, although they had a bit luck in the end but he trusts again these players. Only Thy had some problems with his knee last days and could not train much but he said that he is ready. Also John Verhoek scored twice against Bochum and has won the battle for the place in offensive against Nöthe but he has to confirm this now. The only change can be in central midfield where Boll is back after missing the match against Bochum, for this reason Kringe must on bench because Buchtmann is set to play because with his good offensive play he can help the team more here as Kringe. Overall we can expect the same starting lineup as in the past.
After Dresden’s 0-3 against FSV Frankfurt last weekend Peter Pacult was sucked immediately. For this reason Sportmanager Menze sit on bench and has to bear the blame for the team today. Additional he searches for a new Coach where some names are already mentioned with Runjaic or Hasenhüttl but nothing confirmed yet. Nevertheless their focus is the match in Hamburg at St. Pauli today anyway. Against the last match where the performance were more as awful a lot of changes are expected for the lineup today. First one is that Schuppan returns into the starting lineup as back wing while Mravac and Susac battle for the place in central back beside Bregerie. However, the central midfield with Losilla and Fiel is the same as under former Coach Pacult but the biggest changes will be in offensive. Youngster Müller who started against FSV is not even in the squad while alternative Trojan is injured and therefore not available. The wings are filled with Quali and Kempe and up front he counts on two strikers with Pote and Dedic who plays the first time together this season. They did it already some seasons ago and were one of the best offensive duos in 2.Bundesliga. Maybe Menze remember about it. Also midfielder Robert Koch is in the squad again after Pacult sorted him out but Menze give him a new chance and he is on bench today.
