Nurnberg vs Sandhausen Prediction
Nurnberg marked their third loss within the last five league fixtures in their previous encounter. They were on the road against Hamburger SV and lost 4-1 in the match. The Club conceded two goals each in the two halves and gave away two penalties for the host in the clash.
Sandhausen is on a five-game unbeaten streak in the league. They have kept two wins in the same period and one of the wins was recorded in their previous league clash. Sandhausen was also on the road in that clash against Osnabruck which ended in a 1-3 scoreline favoring the former.
From these primary outlining, we can see that Sandhausen will be coming in with more confidence than the host in the match. Along with that, the visitor has an eight points lead over Nurnberg in the campaign this season.
Besides, Nurnberg has not had much luck at home either. Despite having the home ground advantage, the Club has won only two of their ten home matches so far. Their inability to score goals has been playing a vital role in their downfall. The host has scored only 11 goals in their 10 league home appearances.
On the other hand, Sandhausen has been improving their game away from home in the campaign lately. They were unbeaten in the last four away fixtures with three draws in it. Also, the visitor has finished their away run with a win. They have also struggled with finding goals as they have slotted in nine goals in the nine appearances on the road in the campaign.
Thus, the punters can see that the best option to place their bets is on a double chance. With their better overall performance this season, Sandhausen is closer to creating chances in the game. Hence, it is safer to go with a double chance of favoring the visitor.
Since both teams have had troubles at the back, we can expect both teams to score at least a goal each in ninety minutes of the match.
