Nurnberg vs Erzgebirge Aue Prediction

The Glorious had lost 1-0 on the road the last match-day, against St. Pauli. The red card received by Christian Mathenia in the 55th minute made them panic and use up all available substitutions in no time. The scoreline stood at 0-0 for a very long time, before the hosts found the back of the net in the 84th minute to take the win.

In the meantime, the Violets won 3-1 at home over Sandhausen. Once again a dismissal played spoilsport, as the visitors were reduced to just ten on the pitch by the time the game-clock flashed five minutes. The Violets converted the subsequent penalty, and thereafter added two more goals to ensure the three points.

As things stand this Friday, the Glorious seem to be the stronger team. The reason being, their phenomenal h2h record against this rival. They have won eight of the previous ten overall h2h games, and scored two or more goals in three of the past five such meetings. They have also lost just twice in total against the Violets in the prior two decades.

Going on, the Glorious have a 100% winning record at this venue in h2h clashes, and not once have they failed to score goals here. And finally, only once have they even failed to score two or more goals at this ground in such match-ups. Likely, expect a winning performance from Nurnberg this weekend.

Moreover, the Violets are on a 14-game winless run on the road, which stretches back to August of last year. Taking all these observations into account, it’s adjudged that Nurnberg are on course to record a win this game week.
