Hannover vs Nurnberg
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Monday, 30 September 2019
Kick-off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: HDI-Arena (Hannover).
With the way things are going, a quick return to the top flight certainly does not look to be on the cards for either Hannover or Nurnberg.
The hosts pulled off what was only their second win of the season last week as they edged it past Kiel with a narrow 2-1 victory on the road.
Nurnberg, on the other hand, salvaged no more than a point in their respective matchup against Karlsruher after both teams managed to score just a goal apiece by the end of the ninety minutes.
The visitors are currently adjacent to Hannover in the table with a narrow one-point cushion over the latter. However, given Nurnberg’s inconsistent form on the road, Hannover will be eying the prospect of leapfrogging above the away side this week.
Hannover vs Nurnberg Head to head (h2h)
- Three out of the last five games have ended in favor of Hannover.
- Their previous encounter saw Nurnberg lose 2-0.
- None of their past five matchups have seen both teams get their names on the scoresheet together.
- Only four of their last ten clashes here have been low scoring ones with under 2.5 goals on the charts.
Hannover vs Nurnberg Prediction
Mirko Slomka’s men are yet to have a taste of success at home in the second division and have picked up just two points from a possible nine. However, it needs saying that their counterparts are without a win in their last two outings in a row as well.
Furthermore, the away side have not been faring well in their previous visits to this venue and have admitted defeat in five of their past six trips here, three of which were by a two-goal margin or more.
Considering that the hosts will be welcoming Nurnberg on the back of a positive result in their most recent clash, count on Hannover to emerge victoriously in this one.
In addition, the visitors have not been shy in racking up their goals tally and have found the back of the net atleast twice in their previous two outings. Given that six of their past nine head to head meetings have also been high scoring ones, by all means, expect over 2.5 goals on the final scoreboards at the last blast of the whistle.
