Nurnberg vs RB Leipzig Prediction & Match Preview

Nurnberg vs RB Leipzig
Germany – 1. Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 2nd March 2019
Kick-off at 14.30 UK/ 15.30 CET
Venue: Max-Morlock-Stadion (Nuremberg).

A great opportunity for Leipzig to consolidate their Champions League spot. They currently have posted 42 points on the board and enjoys a four-point lead at the fourth position. Just a single-point deficit denies them the third position for now.

It’d be great for them to have some extra wins and points in the bank, considering the likes of Wolfsburg, Frankfurt, Hoffenheim, Leverkusen etc gunning for them.

Nurnberg is certain to get the boot this summer, as they sit dead-last in the table, and is five points off the safety line. On top of that, they have a very hard schedule lying in front of them, with Frankfurt and Hoffenheim waiting for them in the pipeline after this tie. Expectedly morale is at an all-time low.

Leipzig understands the importance of this fixture. As the season has entered its final stretch, an easy game like this should be put to the bed and should be taken full advantage of. This will definitely come useful in the very final match-days.

They also scored three or more goals thrice in these six matches. On the road, they recorded huge wins in their last three attempts, registering three or more goals each time. The combined scoreline for the three fixtures is 1-10.

At home, they have not tasted a win in their last eight tries and had just one to their name in the last 12. They have also had their defense breached in 11 of their last 12 home games.

It is definitely shaping up to be a huge and easy win for the in-form guests.
