Nurnberg vs Augsburg
Date: Saturday, 30 March 2019
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: Max Morlock Stadion.
There is a high chance that Nurnberg will return to 2. Bundesliga just 10 months ago after earning the promotion. The squad from Max Morlock has been struggling to win points throughout the whole season, and they are currently occupying the last place on the table. The last glimmer of hope can disappear this weekend if Augsburg takes a point or three. The importance of this match is huge for visitors as well. They got dangerously close to the relegation zone, having 25 points on their account while Stuttgart for example have 20.
The odds presented for this clash are pointing towards direction of a tight clash. Nurnberg to win is currently at 2.87, while chances for the visitors to achieve the same are 2.50. Augsburg should have the advantage if we are going to judge by the recent form. They managed to beat Borussia Dortmund and Hannover, while winning a point against RB Leipzig on the road.
As for their hosts and opponents, Fortuna have four consecutive losses in Bundesliga. The offense is doing really poor work as well, managing to score only two goals in those duels. The team collected only 13 points in 26 duels, while having the second worst goal difference in the league.
Nurnberg vs Augsburg: Head-to-head
The most recent meetings between them always offered goals.
The first clash of the season was very interesting, ending as 4-goals thriller and 2-2 result.
Augsburg had the lead two times thanks to the goals of Finnbogason and Schmid, but Nurnberg secured a point in the late stages of the match.
The average number of goals seen in all their duels is not high (close to 2.00), but majority of those have happened two decades ago.
Nurnberg vs Augsburg: Prediction
Bet that stands out here is located in the goals market. We are going to back the Over 2.5 goals option at 2.00 odds for a simple reason. Hosts have to charge from the first minute and look for an early goal. One point would do nothing for them here.
Augsburg scored a lot of goals against top tier teams in 2019, so we are expecting them to punish hosts through the counterattacks. Secondary bet with smaller stake could be away win at 2.30.
