Bayern Munich vs Nurnberg
Date: Saturday, 8 December 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Allianz Arena (Munich).
Bayern somehow survived a Werder Bremen threat last weekend to return on the winning ways and keep pace on the likes of Dortmund, M’Gladbach and Leipzig at the top of the Bundesliga ladder, The reigning champions still ha e a mountain to climb to return back into the title contest as BVB are as many as nine points clear at the very top.
Nevertheless, things look much better than they did before the international break. Niko Kovac’s men finally began to produce in the final third. Arjen Robben and Robert Lewandowski inspired a demolishing 5-1 victory over Benfica in the Champions League, while Serge Gnabry stole the show in a narrow 1-2 victory over Werder last weekend at Weserstadion. The Bavarians will have a great chance to keep the good form going on Saturday afternoon when they host recently-promoted Nurnberg side in the 14th round of the competition.

Bayern Munich vs Nurnberg: Prediction
The visitors still find it tough to adjust to the top flight football. They took 11 points in 13 games which is only enough for 15th position in the league table. They are currently on a dreadful run of seven straight games without a victory in the league.
Der Club have been poor travellers so far in the season. They took only two points from six away matches this term, allowing as many as 22 goals in the process. They conceded as many as 20 goals in last four away matches in the competition.
Niko Kovac will get a fantastic opportunity to further raise the spirits inside his dressing room. We expect Bayern’s strikers to exploit Nurnberg’s defensive hols to the max and pick up a demolishing victory by at least three goals difference on the afternoon.
