This match will not have any consequence at the top of the table. But the hosts need to win this to stay away from the relegation zone. They are currently 15th in the table with just 2 points between them and the red zone. Currently, they are without a win for the last 4 league games.

In terms of form, Bochum is third in the competition right now. They have 35 points and a 4 points lead over their upcoming rivals. In 28 matches they have 11 matches drawn and 9 defeats. Also, like most teams, they have given away more goals than they scored until now.

  • Bochum is unbeaten in their 6 recent league fixtures on the trot.

FC Nurnberg vs VfL Bochum: Prediction

Bochum ash dominated the head to head stats in recent times. With a current unbeaten streak going on at both home and away games they will be hard to take down. The hosts had some good performances but win still evade them.  They are inconsistent as they draw against teams like Aue but lose to St. Pauli. So I am backing the visitors to continue their unbeaten run.

Nurnberg has scored goals in most of their home matches in the recent past. They have 15 goals in 14 matches in front of their home crowd. But they have conceded about 24 goals in those games as well. Bochum is coming from two consecutive away draws, both goalless ones. But their attack is more than enough to get through the home defense. So I am backing both sides to get in the score sheet on Saturday.
