Nurnberg vs Freiburg
Date: Saturday, 22 December 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Max-Morlock-Stadion (Nurnberg).
Nurnberg and Freiburg take on each other in a low-profile relegation six-pointer on Saturday afternoon at Max-Morlock-Stadion. The hosts head into the game in a tougher position as they hold the very foot of the league standings with just 11 points from 16 matches so far. Freiburg are seven points ahead in 12th, but a potential defeat here could seriously compromise their ambitions of avoiding the relegation scrap in the second half of the season.
The hosts are on a dreadful spell of form since November. They took only one point in past six league affairs. Moving forward, they failed to produce up front in any of last three defeats. Nevertheless, we have to mention Nurnberg did have a very complicated schedule with fixtures against Schalke, Bayer Leverkusen, Wolfsburg, Bayern Munich and Borussia Monchengladbach in the process. The tie with Freiburg should be winnable, but the question is whether Michael Kollner will find the way to raise team’s spirits inside the dressing room after such a horrendous streak of results.
Nurnberg vs Freiburg: Head-to-head
This will be the first head to head clash between the two teams in more than three years following Nurnberg’s return to the top flight football.
Freiburg generally have a positive H2H record as they lead the tie by three wins coming into 25th meeting with Der Club.
Bresigau Blasilianer won three and lost one of past four meetings with Nurnberg, each of which saw at least three goals scored.
Nurnberg vs Freiburg: Prediction
The visitors had a roller-coaster campaign so far in the season. They did pick up some impressive wins form time to time, but most of them came on the home patch. Breisgau Brasilianer were dreadful travellers so far in the season with a record of 1 win, 2 draws and 4 losses in 7 games.
Freiburg failed to find the back of the net in any of last two away defeats to Borussia Dortmund and Fortuna Dusseldorf (2-0 each). The value is nice in backing Nurnberg not to lose at 1.45 here knowing Christian Streich’s men won just one of seven away fixtures in the league.
