Nurnberg Prediction

As mentioned, Nurnberg sit bottom of the Bundesliga and their current plight hasn’t been helped by losing seven of their last eight matches overall, as the hosts remain anchored to the bottom of the division, with an upcoming match against the league leaders.

It’s been a disastrous campaign for Nurnberg who are without a league win for 15 matches, with their last success being a 3-0 home win over Fortuna Dusseldorf all the way back at the end of September last year.

The hosts are still without a league win on their travels this season with home form being their best bet of survival although Nurnberg are without a win at their Max-Morlock-Stadion from their last eight matches as the rot has well and truly set in.

Nurnberg started the season brightly enough at home where they were unbeaten in their first three matches of the term with wins over Hannover and Fortuna Dusseldorf as well as a point against Mainz 05, but since then, the wheels have fallen off in dramatic fashion.


Key-Facts – Nurnberg v Borussia Dortmund

  • Nurnberg haven’t won a league match in 15 outings
  • Dortmund have lost just 1 of their 10 away matches to date
  • Dortmund have scored in 9 of their 10 away matches


Borussia Dortmund Prediction

In complete contrast, Borussia Dortmund sit top of the Bundesliga with a two point lead ahead of second placed Bayern Munich, but the visitors know they can’t afford to slip up here with Bayern right behind them and just waining for them to fail.

Dortmund are unbeaten in their last 5 matches overall which includes wins over Borussia Moenchengladbach, RB Lipzig and Hannover, along with points picked up against Eintracht Frankfurt and Hoffenheim in 1-1 and 3-3 draws respectively.

Dortmund also hold a steady record away from home too which stands at 6-3-1 17/8 with their one blot on their copy-book being a 2-1 loss away at Fortuna Dusseldorf, but wins at Mainz 05, Schalke 04 and RB Leipzig prove that the visitors don’t remain down for long.

Only Bayern Munich with 9 away wins have won more on the road than Borussia Dortmund, and with dangerous forwards such as Alcacer (12 goals) and Reus (13 goals) up front, it’s easy to see how Dortmund have scored in 9 of their 10 away matches to date this season.

Betting Tips Verdict

Nurnberg look almost down and out and on their knees while Borussia Dortmund will know that all three points here would open up a useful five-point lead at the top of the Bundesliga.
