Karlsruher vs Nurnberg Prediction
Karlsruher SC finally gave their faithful a reason to cheer last week by getting the better of Sandhausen on the road with two unanswered goals to their name. Miserably, the hosts were winless for seven games up till that latter clash.
Be that as it may, with just twenty-four points in the bag, the home team are still dwelling in the dreaded relegation zone, along with Wehen and Dresden.
On the other hand, Nuernberg have hardly been faring any better in their respective campaign, and are currently placed right above Karlsruher on the table. The visitors have not picked up the win in their past two games either, the most recent of which saw them lose 2-1 to Darmstadt.
Furthermore, it has been nothing short of a bumpy ride for the guests on the road this term. In fact, they have just two measly wins to boast of from their previous ten outings in the second division.
It is also worth mentioning that the visitors have admitted defeat in four of their past seven clashes away from home.
Taking into account that Nuernberg have also come out on top just once in their last four visits here, Karlsruher are the favorites to pick up all three points this week.
However, the hosts have not tasted success in their previous two fixtures at home. Given that the visitors have also shared the spoils thrice on the road this season, a double chance is sizing up to be the safest punt in this one.
Additionally, Karlsruher have been a nervous bunch in their own defensive third, even at home. Disappointingly, they have conceded a goal or more in each of their previous eight clashes here.
Meanwhile, despite the poor string of results, Nuernberg have consistently found the back of the net in each of their past four outings.
Considering that the reverse fixture of clash also witnessed both teams get their names on the scoresheet together, expect neither side to keep a clean sheet intact this Friday.
