Preview: An epic ensued when these sides clashed in the league in October, as Aue capped off a pulsating second half of football by scoring a last-gasp winner in a 4-3 victory in front of their own fans. There will be no fans on this occasion, but can Nurnberg strike back inside their Max-Morlock-Stadion?

FC Nurnberg Preview – Successive relegations becoming a genuine fear?

Following the club’s demotion from the Bundesliga in 2018-19 there was an assumption FC Nurnberg (15th – W7 D8 L11, GF34 GA46) would be involved in the promotion shake up at this stage of the campaign. This was in spite of the fact this same team won only 3 of its 34 league games the previous season, albeit in superior company. Bookmakers even had them among the front-runners back in August.

With less than a quarter of their allotted fixtures to be completed and the team languishing a point above the relegation play-off, a very real prospect of back-to-back relegations must now be dawning on them. Last week’s 1-0 loss away to St Pauli hasn’t helped their cause – a third defeat in four when including results before the enforced break – nor did playing with ten men for the final half-hour of the contest.

Only two teams have received more red cards this season than Nurnberg’s five, bringing into question this squad’s temperament and reliability. A return to home comforts isn’t the positive we would naturally assume, either. Three wins from thirteen (W3 D5 L5) inside their 50,000 Max-Morlock-Stadion is a drastically poor return, losing the previous two, with the most recent a 3-0 drubbing at the hands of mid-table Hannover.


Nurnberg Win & Both To Score



Erzgebirge Aue Preview – Dreadful away form hampering any promotion push?

With a 3-1 scoreline over an out of form Sandhausen last Saturday, Aue (6th – W10 D7 L9, GF37 GA35) extended the excellent record at their Erzgebirgsstadion where since the start of the season, only one visiting side has departed with all three points. And speaking of points, no team this season is averaging more from home games than manager Dirk Schuster and his team, who have now scored three or more at home on seven occasions in 2019-20.

So it really does beg the question how this team are only in sixth-place at this stage, and facing an uphill task of making up eight points on the promotion berths. One win on the road all season long solves this particular investigation. Rock-bottom Dynamo Dresden being the only team with fewer away points to their name than Aue (W1 D4 L8), who are scoring at a rate of less than a goal per game (0.77) on their travels.

Even more alarming is the fact their sole away triumph dates back to the opening weekend of the season, beating Greuther Furth 2-0 all the way back in July of last year. Twelve subsequent away outings have returned a pitiful four from a possible 36 points, and with a goal difference that reads -15. Their most recent away encounter? A 2-1 defeat in March to bottom-of-the-table Dynamo Dresden.

Nurnberg Vs Erzgebirge Aue Betting Advice

There should be vastly contrasting moods in the dressing rooms of these two teams. On the one hand, Nurnberg are desperately out of form (one win from the last five) and fighting for survival. Whereas Aue still retain an outside chance of promotion after another impressive performance at home last time out. Yet the latter have won only once away from home all season, and seemingly cannot be relied upon for this contest.

FC Nurnberg Vs Aue Key Facts

  • It is two wins from the last eleven home league games played for Nurnberg (W2 D5 L4), losing each of the last two.
  • Since recording a 2-0 win at Greuther Furth on Matchday 1 of the season, Aue have failed to register an away win in twelve attempts (D4 L8).
  • Goals have been a regular theme in recent encounters, with all five previous clashes producing both teams to score/three or more goals.


Seven goals littered their previous meeting back in October, with all seven netted after half-time as Aue edged a classic to win 4-3. The last five encounters between the two, meanwhile, have seen both teams among the goals (4/6 BetFred) and averaged more than four goals in the match (2/1 BetVictor), meaning the goal lines could be the way to go.
