Both these teams are in running for a top-tier finish. And with the season having entered its final stages, it goes without saying that the objective of getting promoted to the top flight is of the highest priority.
Nurnberg are placed sixth in the table, and they need a surplus of five points to climb to the third spot – which would enable them to get into the playoffs.

Meanwhile, Hamburger are placed fourth in standings, and need an extra three points to make it to the playoffs.
Both these squads are in great form, and have been scoring in plenty right from the start of the season. As these two go against each other with promotion in their radars, anticipate a fierce encounter with goals in plenty.
