Nurnberg vs Werder Bremen
Date: Saturday, 2 February 2019
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Max-Morlock-Stadion (Nurnberg).
Nurnberg continued to struggle at the start of the year as a back-to-back defeats to the likes of Hertha and Mainz kept the team at the rock-bottom of the Bundesliga ladder. They are four points shy of the safe zone at the moment and we can say Michael Kollner’s troops have a mountain to climb to prevent the immediate return to the second division football.
Der Club find it really hard to keep things tight at the back. They boast league’s weakest defensive record with 43 conceded goals in 19 games so far in the season. They easily shipped three goals in the previous home fixture against Hertha Berlin (1-3 defeat).
They also allowed two away at bottom-half rivals Mainz last weekend. This will be the music to the ears of Max Kruse, Martin Harnik and Maximilian Eggestein who are the most lethal attacking weapons Werder possess.

Four of past five head to head games saw goals scored at both ends.
Nurnberg vs Werder Bremen: Prediction
Die Werderaner had a tough end to the previous year, but they look to have regained the momentum at the start of 2019. They saw off Hannover 0-1 on the road before playing a 2-2 draw in a very interesting home fixture with Eintracht Frankfurt last Saturday at Weserstadion.
Florian Kohfeldt has a dangerous attacking line-up capable of producing goals against competition’s worst defense. We will go with the away win as the main betting prediction at 2.00 odds, while you can also back Werder Bremen to net two or more goals on the afternoon at the odds of 1.80.
