Jahn Regensburg vs Nurnberg
Germany – 2.Bundesliga
Date: Tuesday, 26 May 2020
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Arena Regensburg (Regensburg).
Both teams are going through rough patches at present, and as such points are in dire need for either. The Glorious are particularly facing a tough task ahead, as they are hanging above the relegation line with just seven match-days remaining. Likely, we could count on both squads to go after the win, and their leaky defenses should turn this into a goal-fest.

Jahn Regensburg vs Nurnberg Prediction
The Red Shorts were held to a goalless draw on the road by Sandhausen the last match-day. Either team tried their best to break the deadlock, and it even led to the fixture being a bit undisciplined, with the referee having to brandish three yellow cards to the Red Shorts even before half time.
Meanwhile, the Glorious registered a 1-1 draw at home the past game week, against Aue. In fact, the hosts were lucky to have escaped with a single point, as they were trailing 0-1 late into the game, when the visitors slotted in an own goal.
As things stand this Tuesday, both teams could be relegated at the end of the season, and especially the Glorious. They are at present the last safe team in the table, and should they be booted out, it would be too much to take for their fans, as they were relegated from the Bundesliga just this past summer.
To have two back-to-back relegations would break the spirit of even the strong-willed fans. The Glorious will be desperate to not let anything of that sorts happen. They also have the confidence of never having failed to score against this rival over the years, even at this venue.
On the other hand, the Red Shorts have recorded four of the previous five h2h wins, and they have lost at this venue against this opponent just once in the 21st century. They are also higher in the league table, and have lost at this venue just twice since September of 2019.
Also do note that since March of 2019, the Red Shorts have failed to score goals at this ground just once. Taking into account all these findings, it’s adjudged that the fixture is about to present plenty of goals.
