Schalke vs Nurnberg Predictions and Match Preview

Schalke vs Nurnberg
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 24 November 2018
Kick-off at 17.30 UK/ 18.30 CET
Venue: Veltins Arena (Gelsenkirchen).

Two teams from the bottom tier of Bundesliga take on each other at the Veltins Arena this Saturday as part of the twelfth round of Bundesliga competition.

Schalke used to be one of the powerhouses of German football, but they are currently struggling in the bottom tier of the league table. They lost their league game last weekend against Frankfurt for three unanswered goals.

Schalke had the obvious disadvantage of playing on the road, but a loss of this magnitude is really not suitable for a team that used to jointly rule German football once.

Jovic scored a brace for Frankfurt and later Haller completed the humiliation with the third goal. All three goals came in the second half.

Nurnberg suffered one of the worst losses that any team has suffered in the German league this season. They were hosting possibly the weakest team in the league, Stuttgart. But the eventual scoreline read 0-2 in favor of the visitors. Not only Stuttgart kept a clean sheet, but they also found a way to score two goals past Nurnberg defense.

The embarrassment becomes complete when it is known that the visitors are the side that has scored the least goals in the league so far.
