Nurnberg vs Borussia Dortmund
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Monday, 18th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.30 UK/ 20.30 CET
Venue: Max-Morlock-Stadion (Nuremberg).
Die Borussen has 13 more match-days to navigate through to reach their promised land. For the sake of the sport in general, as well as Bundesliga, I hope they could deliver this time.
If Bayern manages to thwart this title challenge from their eternal rivals, it’d really hard for the German top division to stay relevant at the top of football hierarchy.
After dropping points in their last game, Der BVB has got one of the easiest fixtures of their season next to look forward to. They take a hike to Nuremberg to take on Marek Mintal’s men.
Currently, there is no other set of players that could lay claim to the recognition of being the weakest cog in the Bundesliga.
Marco Reus and his boys will be impatient to get back on the pitch and reinvigorate their inspirational campaign.

Nurnberg vs Borussia Dortmund Prediction
By far, Lucien Favre’s men have been the best team in the Bundesliga this season. Even the mighty Bayern Munich has been given a run for their money by the Black and Yellows.
Dortmund scored the most number of goals so far in the competition, touching the 50-mark already (the only one to do so thus far), and conceding the least on the road.
Meantime, just eight goals got past Favre’s backline as the season has entered its final phase. No other squad has managed to keep it in single digits.
Der BVB has been on ominous form from the beginning of 2018-19, losing just three ties in their last 37 attempts. Of these, two came in the Champions League.
The team will also be trying extra hard, considering their dropped points in the title race with Bayern. Expect them to go all out against the minnows, and record a fantastic, morale-boosting win.
The chances for that are sky-high, since Die Legende has been winless in their last 19 official fixtures, and 10 home-ties. Moreover, they are the bottom-most team in the league and has recorded the least number of goals in the tournament.
H2h ties also hugely favor the title contenders, with 15 of the last 16 wins being registered by them. Just the last meeting alone is a huge indicator of what’s coming next. A 7-0 drubbing by Die Borussen.
Expect them to blast the hosts out of existence this Monday.
