We drop down to the German second tier for our next preview with newly relegated Nurnberg taking on Hamburg as the betting tips continue at the Max-Morlock-Stadion.

Nurnberg Prediction – Can Nurnberg make quick return to Bundesliga?

Last season ended in dismal failure for Monday night’s hosts, Nurnberg, who finished bottom of the Bundesliga with just 19 points to their name.

Monday night’s hosts will therefore be seeking to make a swift return to the big time this season, and they made a good start to their campaign last weekend.

Nurnberg began their 2 Bundesliga campaign with a valuable 1-0 win away at Dynamo Dresden to hand manager Boris Schommers the perfect start.

They now return to their Max-Morlock-Stadion where they’ll be looking to make themselves harder to beat this time around.

Although they eventually went down in what was a disappointing season, Nurnberg lost just 1 of their last 4 matches on home turf of last season.

That loss was a heavy 4-0 loss at home to Borussia Moenchengladbach but they’d earlier shown signs of improvement.

A 3-0 home win over Augsburg was followed up with back-to-back draws against Schalke 04 and most notably, a 1-1 draw with Bayern Munich.

The hosts therefore know they’re capable of pulling some decent results out of the hat, and they’ll be depending upon midfielder Behrens and forward Ishak to get them going again.

Hamburg Prediction – Can Hamburg go one step better?

The visitors narrowly missed out on a promotion play-off spot at the end of last season’s 2 Bundesliga campaign by just 1 point.

Hamburg finished in 4th place just 1 point behind 3rd placed Union Berlin at the end of last term, so the visitors will be looking for a top three finish this time around.

Even though they finished in the top four last season, their overall league results fizzled out at the end of the last campaign.

Just 1 win out of their last 10 matches overall in the German second tier ultimately denied Hamburg a place in the promotion play-offs.

That rare success came in the shape of a 3-0 home win over Duisburg, but it was far too little too late for the Hamburg outfit.

5 defeats within this disappointing 10-match sequence saw Hamburg suffer losses to Darmstadt, Magdeburg, Union Berlin, Ingolstadt and Paderborn.

To rub salt into an already worrying wound was the fact that Hamburg collected just 1 win from their last 9 away matches of last season.

A 4-0 win at St Pauli was scant consolation for a very poor finish to the season on their travels, which saw Hamburg concede 2 goals or more in 6 of these 10 away matches.


Key-Facts – Nurnberg v Hamburg

  • Nurnberg lost just 1 of their last 4 matches at home at the end of last season
  • Hamburg collected just 1 win from their last 9 matches of last season
  • Hamburg conceded 2 goals or more in 6 of their last 10 away matches


Betting Tips Verdict

Nurnberg have their tails up after last week’s win and they should at least avoid defeat at home here.
