Nurnberg vs Stuttgart
Date: Saturday, 10 November 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Max-Morlock-Stadion (Nurnberg).
The change on the bench did little to shift Stuttgart’s fortunes around as the team is not pulling up any trees under Markus Weinzierl either.
Much like his predecessor Tayfun Korkut, Weinzierl does not seem to have the solution to find the right defensive formula.
Die Schwaben conceded three or more goals in all of last four Bundesliga affairs which is why it is no wonder they will travel to Max-Morlock-Stadion off the back of a four-loss thread.
To make things worse, the team did not score a single goal in last three defeats (all under the new manager).
Such a horrendous run sees Stuttgart holding the very bottom of the league standings with just five points from ten games so far in the season.
Can they finally turn a corner on Saturday afternoon against fellow strugglers Nurnberg?
It will finally be one winnable contest for Die Roten who played the likes of Borussia Dortmund, Hoffenheim and Eintracht Frankfurt in last three weeks.
Nurnberg vs Stuttgart: Head-to-head
Stuttgart came on top both home and away when teams played each other two seasons ago in 2. Bundesliga.
Die Schwaben netted six goals in the process.
Overall, Stuttgart were much more successful throughout history winning 32 of 67 meetings with Nurnberg. Der Club won 19 at the same time.
Nurnberg vs Stuttgart: Prediction
The hosts did struggle to stay competitive at the highest level at the start of the season, but their form has seen a rise in the most recent set of fixtures. They will come into this unbeaten in three games across competitions.
Michael Kollner, however, also has huge issues with the lack of meticulousness in his team’s defensive line as Der Club allowed two goals in each of last two games. A 2-2 draw away at Augsburg can be regarded as success for them though.
The hosts were quite efficient at Max-Morlock-Stadion so far and we’d not be surprised to see them bagging two or more goals past the struggling defense of Stuttgart’s here.
