Our Best Betting Prediction Explained Bielefeld vs St. Pauli
Bielefeld was not by chance in the spring the best team in the 2nd Bundesliga. The positive development was continued and the success team was almost completely held together. A good start against a FC St. Pauli, who still has some gaps in the squad and in which the mood is not the best, would be no surprise.
