Stuttgart vs Nurnberg
Date: Saturday, 6 April 2019
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Mercedes-Benz-Arena (Stuttgart).
A real buzz is expected in and around Mercedes-Benz-Arena on Saturday afternoon when Stuttgart and Nurnberg take on each other in a true relegation six-pointer. Both sides are struggling badly in this term of Bundesliga and their destinies may well depend on the outcome of this weekend’s clash.
Stuttgart are in a somewhat better position being four points above penultimate-placed Nurnberg. They currently hold the position which leads to the relegation play-offs at the end of the season, but a potential defeat here would bring the visitors just one point behind.
Der Club will, however, enter the game in higher spirits after a huge 3-0 victory over Augsburg in the previous round. It was their first victory since late-September last year and will certainly serve as a massive confidence-booster ahead of one of the most important matches of the entire season.
Stuttgart vs Nurnberg: Head-to-head
Stuttgart have the head to head tradition behind them here.

Stuttgart won 19, drew 6 and lost 8 of 33 home clashes against Nurnberg.
Stuttgart vs Nurnberg: Prediction
The hosts had a very challenging schedule in the last couple of weeks. They conceded three goals in each of back-to-back away losses to Borussia Dortmund and Eintracht Frankfurt, but managed to hold the likes of Hoffenheim to a 1-1 draw in the previous home fixture in the meantime.
Die Schwaben tend to score loads in front of the home fans where they notched nine goals in last four league affairs. The team led by Markus Weinzierl demolished Hannover 5-1 and drew 1-1 to Hoffenheim in past two home outings.
They could easily clinch salvation victory here given Nurnberg’s horrendous away record. Der Club claimed just two points in 13 league outings on the road this term (0 wins, 2 draws and 11 defeats in the process).
