Nurnberg vs Mainz 05
2018/19 German Bundesliga
Date: Saturday 1st September 2018
Kick off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Max-Morlock-Stadion (Nuremberg).
Nurnberg and Mainz will go head to head on Saturday afternoon as te German Bundesliga gears up for its 2nd week matchday.
Last weekend Nurnberg lost 1-0 in what was a very close game away to Hertha Berlin so there will be some pressure on the team to perform at their first home game of the season and not too lose two games in a row.
Mainz beat Stuttgart 1-0 at home on the opening day of the season and they will want to improve their away form for this campaign which was not strong last season. Getting a win here off the bat would prove that the team have done just that. Still the bookmakers have installed Nurnberg as the favourites to get the points although they are not odds on so the value for us is still very good.
Nurnberg vs Mainz Head to Head
- The last time the teams met here was in 2013 where the match ended in a draw.
- Mainz have not beaten Nurnberg at this stadium since 2005.
- From recent games there is a 60% chance to see both teams to score.
- 3 of the last 4 games played at Nurnberg has ended in a draw.
Nurnberg vs Mainz Prediction
We expect to see a game that will start very slowly and build as it goes on and players get tired and our main bet will be to see the draw at half time. We will also take the highest scoring half to occur in the 2nd half. This is a game that could be played like a chess match and both team square each other up.
We must remember that history between these two sides points to the games being very close and there isn’t much difference in quality between the two sides so no team should really stick out from the other. Expect few goals when these two go head to head.
