RB Leipzig vs Nurnberg
Date: Sunday, 7 October 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK 18:00 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena (Leipzig).
RB Leipzig struggled badly at the very start of the new season, but they managed to turn fortunes around and find the momentum to pick up consecutive wins of late. They head into Sunday’s home clash with Nurnberg with three straight victories under their belts.
Such rise in form resulted in the climb to the 6th place in the Bundesliga ladder. The team led by Ralf Rangnick will have a nice opportunity to keep it going here against the recently-promoted Nurnberg side.
Leipzig confirmed the phenomenal shape by beating Rosenborg 1-3 on the road in Thursday’s Europa League action, even though their boss rested key players for this league tie. Speaking of the domestic league, the Bulls conceded just one goal in back-to-back wins over Stuttgart and Hoffenheim.
RB Leipzig vs Nurnberg: Head-to-head
- Teams have two wins apiece ahead of their fifth head to head encounter.
- All four H2H games saw home sides snatching the spoils.
- All of last three H2H ties saw three or more goals & BTTS option “come in”.
RB Leipzig vs Nurnberg: Prediction
Yussuf Poulsen and Timo Werner cooperated very well in the final third against Hoffenheim. They both skipped mid-week visit to Rosenborg and are expected to return to the starting line-up fresh and ready to guide their team to third consecutive league win.
Nurnberg will also come into this encouraged after a fine performance in the 3-0 thumping of Fortuna Dusseldorf last weekend. Michael Kollner’s troops showed a phenomenal fighting spirit to rebound from a devastating 7-0 defeat they had suffered earlier against Borussia Dortmund away at Signal-Iduna-Park.
However, we have to notice Nurnberg’s struggles in matches away from home where they lost two and drew one of three so far, bagging just a single goal in the process.
The home win looks to be a banker at 1.44, while you can alternatively try with RB Leipzig to keep a clean sheet at the 2.37 odds.
