Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 10th March 2019
Kick-off at 14.30 UK/ 15.30 CET

A free-pass for Hoffenheim. They are five points off a spot from Europe as of now, and they take on the easiest challenge in the Bundesliga. With just ten more rounds remaining in the competition, the team realizes that a game at home, against the last-placed Nuernberg, is a once-in-a-season opportunity.

Regarding the visitors, they are eight points below the cut-off line, and as of now, all they have managed is just 13. They are without a doubt the worst team in the German league, and the absolute worst on the road as well. They have scored the fewest goals of all 18 sides in the tournament and registered the fewest on the road as well.

Hoffenheim vs Nurnberg Prediction

Without a doubt, Nuernberg is the worst team in the entire division. On top of that, they are on the road, and against a team in desperate pursuit of a European spot in league standings. Nuernberg has managed just two points on the road all season. They pose no serious challenge at all to the overwhelming favorites of this tie, Hoffenheim.

The visitors of this fixture have scored the least number of goals overall as well as on the road. In fact, they could not even manage an average of 1 goal per game this season.

H2h records too suggest a huge win for the hosts. The last time these two took on each other was just months back, and then Nuernberg had the home advantage. The game ended 1-3, in favor of the visitors. This time around, Nuernberg doesn’t even have the home status to count on.

They have conceded two or more goals in seven of the last eight h2h meetings, and in all games at this venue, bar one. And importantly, they have never kept a clean sheet at this stadium.

All in all, it should be very comfortable ninety minutes for the home team.
